How good? - Dared Mc-7p Tube preamp w phono

I'm considering a new or used tube preamp for <$1000.
Remote and phono section not required but OK if unit has it. Preference is slightly warm versus analytical.
Other preamps considiered are
VTL 2.5,
Juicy Music Peach

Of what little I've read on this Dared preamp it's been very positive.

Anyone with experiences regarding the Dared please offer your opinion.
Thank you!!!
Did you ever end up buying the Dared MC-7P preamp? Curious what you thought of them, if you have more info now.
