Its my first tube! (Preamp)

I just got my vintage accuphase p-300 back from my techs. It’s been totally restored, and needs a simple preamp. I’m thinking I’d like to try tubes. I could go with vintage or new. I have not chosen speakers for it yet, but will probably choose something smallish as this will be the Bedroom system. So far I’ve been looking at the Schiit freya, but I’m open to suggestions. Used or new, under $750! 
If you want to add phono to a Freya or other preamp the Schiit Mani is outstanding!
The Freya is a lot of fun and unlike any other preamp out there at any price...3 operating choices of tube, passive, and FET, fully balanced, makes you a better person...
I own have many hours of enjoyment from Aric Audio, give him a call, wonderful products.
If you can find one, a used Audio Research LS-7 is great sounding. Also, tube rolling won't break the bank, as it only uses 2  6922/6dj8 tubes. 1 per channel. I loved mine. As for tubes, it even sounded great with stock Sovteks. I tried Mullards, warm and full. Telefunkens, clear and clean. And Amperex bugle boys. My favorites. Room filling sound.
Have fun.
