Beware that the Audible Illusions can be picky about NOS tubes as the unit runs tubes very hot. Used VTL Ultimate is a better preamp than the Audible Illusions anyway, but costs more. This is a seriously good unit that can be fitted with a factory installed tubed phono section for not a whole lot of money.
A used Airtight is an excellent choice, too, and I think there is one for sale right now. It has a phono section, too; think the model is ATC 1.
A Decware is a fantastic unit but is limited to two inputs. The use of only two inputs is done for a cleaner signal path. Decware also provides you with a 30 day money back guarantee so you can try them out.
