Modwright LS-36.5 vs Hovland HP-100 / HP-200

I'm considering Modwright LS-36.5 or Hovland HP-100 or HP-200 preamp for my system.

Please advice for experiences, comments are welcome.

It'll help to list the rest of your system, and to state your listening preferences and tonality goal.
Hovland is coming out with the HP300.
Pre will be used in line with Bedini's Classic 100 monobloks and MG 3.6R. Phono stage in pre is not needed as I have separate one.
I found the 9.0SE better than the HP100... so the 36.5...
The 9.0SE I had was definitely quieter than the Hovland 100, stronger bass presence, but leaner in the mids and missing some magic in the mid/high end. Hovland high end is so open and transparent yet smooooth and totally non-fatiguing.
I used some Raytheon JRP orange printing 5687 tubes, they were not lean at all, very nice tubes on voices.

The HP100 is colored to my ears, everything sounds the same.
If you choose the '100, the "Tape" input is the most transparent(they don't tell you that in the manual).
I own the ModWright LS-36.5 and its companion PS-36.5 power supply and can tell you that as good as my SWL 9.0SE is this new combo simply blows it away on all counts! If you like your music to sound realistic and natural then this combo is formidable.
I love my Hovland 100 pre amp and have for the last 5 years. It's time for new
line stage tubes... any recommendations??
Do you have a first Gen '100?
