It could work better, depending on the amp. Pick one that has a fairly sensitive input requirement if possible. In a recent test of the Creek passive it was found to work very well with tubes. Keep interconnect between source and preamp and preamp and amp as short as practical. I have two passives and often use them with very good results. Interconnects will make a difference but are system dependent so experiment with the ones you have or can borrow.
