Check out odyssey stratos at odysseyaudio.com. Read the reviews (including TAS' golden ear award) you find there and then order a monoblock pair for $2k.
You should notice the power rating, the speed, etc.. Not to mention the 30 day money back guarantee and the 20 year mfg. warranty. Oh, and if you don't like the standard faceplate, you can have them customize it to your liking.
I've never listened to these but I know those that own them. I've never heard or read one negative comment about these amps.
-IMO (were you expecting another's?)
Try a Copland CTA301 Mkl or Mk2. Will match up against any of the recommended preamps and yet cost a 1/3 of their price. Have yet to hear a better preamp. (and yes I have listened to it and yes it is a preamp. I only say that as you earlier got a suggestion for an amp that was never heard before yet it is recommended. Plus you asked for a pre not an amp)
Seriously, the Copland preamp makes a lot of expensive preamps sound cheap.
