First, I would like to say I had both preamps in my home, including a Dr-5. Anyone will serve you very well indeed. They are very reliable and well built with great sound, they also include a fabulous phono section. As far as which one? I would say the original Dr-6 with the gold handles is the one to grab, for it's very liquid midrange and holographic sound.But it is a little dark in it's presentation. The later Classe 6 is a fine preamp in it's own right, I just found the original more to my liking, but they do come with remotes if thats needed. Also don't overlook a Dr-5 if you see one for a good price just as wonderful maybe just a tad darker with less bass extension.
