I had that same classe setup. The CP35 sucks bad. It's a good choice to upgrade the preamp. I still have the ca-100. what you need to do is get a passive preamp. UNBELIEVABLE difference. I bought the reference line preeminence one. I got mine for $450. ($1500 new) seriously seriously better in every way. Don't worry you'll never have to turn it all the way up. You will get plenty of power from your front end! YOU CAN NOT LOSE WITH IT! My jaw dropped when I first put it in my system. Nothing else has yet made such a huge huge improvement. I wrote a big response about it. I'll try to find it and report back if it's still on audiogon.
