Musical Fidelity M6pre

has anyone heard this preamp? and what do you think
any recommendations in the $2500 to $3000 price range?
I purchased the M6pre and M6prx power amp back in April 2011 at 15% off list. I've been a happy camper ever since. Both are excellent products for the money.
For about the same money (or a little less), you can get a Tri-Vista integrated. I have one and it is very nice. Ideally, they should have had the 5703 trivistor tubes replaced by now (the units are 10 years old), which is not difficult, but they are hard wired/soldered. Sweet sounding and very powerful piece, that I think looks retro-cool. :-{D
