How much preamp gain will you need? Active preamp gain varies from product to product, anywhere from around +6db to perhaps +28db.

After reading your question again, am I correct in assuming that you want a remote control preamp? The Bel Canto uses digital control of an analog potentiometer and it looks like your Primare does as well. This is pretty recent engineering practice & I don't know if you'll find this in a stand alone preamp at your price point. Any non-stepped manual potentiometer in a preamp with proper gain for your system should be adequately smooth.
