I owned a LS-100 with a Kismet a one time. Was a very good combo as Odyssey amps love tube preamps. The AI with it's high gain is not a good match with Odyssey amps as their input sensitivity is only 1 volt.

Yeah, after thinking about it overnight, I've pretty much decided to go with an external DAC. And that'll open up some other preamp options -- there's a Van Alstine FET Valve CF here for a nice price, I could get my DAC sooner rather than later with that. Or I could wait for the DAC and blow my budget on a preamp from Don Sachs, Linear Tube Audio, Supratek, or the entry level Atmasphere.
