Help: Shindo Mobrinson or EAR 868

I am considering these pre amps to match with EAR 890 power amp. From what I heard, the Shindo Monbrison pre matches very well with the EAR890. The EAR 868 pre is cheaper and has balanced inputs.

Please advise. Thanks

I've had both.  Monbrison with Cortese and Sinhonnia and 868 with First Watt J2.   I preferred the 868.  Much better driver than the Monbrison.
