I am One of Two US reps for Wyetech Labs. They make several Preamps using the 6SN7 tube. The Opal preamp just won a golden ear award from The Absolute Sound. Do some research on them to see what the reviewers say.

oops! I guess the SLP-94 employs the 12AU7, and 6C4. Boy do I feel like a dunce (*_*). But the SLP-94 is still quite an attractive pre.
I will look into the Wretch a little, but I really don't like the ascetics of the Cary.
Oz, if the VK3i is a bit darker than the Cary's, then I'm guessing the VK5i is also a bit darker sounding? I like the VK5i just fine, but as I said before " I am going crazy wanting to try the 6SN7 " And I do like the open look of the Cary.
Why have tube equipment if you can't see the tubes?
