Desire to try tubes


So I am new to this have no audio contacts, and low budget it seems based on reading forum. I inherited my brothers Heresy I’s (and LP /CD collection) two years ago and started my journey. First bought a Rega P3 and Rega Fono stage running with existing 20 yo Denon 5.1. Then upgraded the Hereseys from Crites with crossovers and new tweeters (46 yo units). Months later after research and savings bought Stellar GCD and Stellar S 300 amp along with Syzygy SLF 870 sub from Underwoodwally. Nice! Next Marantz 6006 CD as transport and Underwood Emerald Physics and Core Power gold power cords and speaker cables. As able Audio Quest entry connects for all. Each move improved sound. Added a Bluesound node 2i as well only listening to Pandora though. I have no reference to options as I’ve only owned Hereseys and never heard a tube amp in a home and am very curious if a tube pre-amp would be a big plus? If I tried one could muster up to 5k. Just looking for the best sound quality I can afford.

Like Raven, don’t overlook Decware that offers excellent sound and value, plenty of posts on their site. They sell direct. 
Think you need to hold your breath and wait millercarbon, wait, wait, wait, yep here it will never come.

Fact is I did post about my Blackhawk experience and you even responded. But then I was attack by James and Dave at Raven and asked the moderator to take it down.

So you owe me an apology.

Don’t get me wrong I enjoy coming here for information....not so much from shills.

I only have 116 posts because I have a life and would rather spend it with my family than reading your post and listening to you bloviate.


@skypunk

if you and miller have a history or grudge, take it offline

don’t know who did who wrong... doesn’t matter, rest of us here don’t care

let up and chill - none of this helps the op who posted here looking for advice and useful input

miller is happy being a cartoon character here, rest of us hold our noses, mostly ignore

no need for you to add to the pollution - you have a full life... go live it
You should try the Shiit Freya + for sure. Under a grand tube stage that you can engage and disengage preamplifier. Get it home try it out if you don’t like you can send it back. This unit performs way above its price, you can always spend more money but that does not mean it will be better. I have done a ton of research into this and always found that tubes in the preamplifier was the best way to go.
Please consider the Line Magnetic LM805ia. New around $5k and you can find a used one for less. It’s a 300b 42wpc SET integrated which will rock your world, Brother!

After rolling all the tubes, amp upgraditis will be a thing of the past.
