Joule Electra 150 Mkii or Hovland 200

I'm considering these 2 preamps and wondering if anyone has experience with boht of these preamps? What is the verdict. I know the 150 Mkii is full bodied with excellent bass. How does the Hovland stack up?
Why would you consider a Hovland if the company has closed shop.
Under consideration since by all acounts Hovland designed and manufactured some well respected components. If repair is ever required, parts should be easy to source.
