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


Hello,
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!!!
