I love my Rogue 99 Magnum preamp. It is a very musical unit with a large soundstage and excellent tonality.

I am familiar with Wadia CD players. I have a 302 and a 861. If you have a $1000 budget, new or used, I wouldn't recommend getting a preamp. In that price range, nothing will come remotely close to the sound you get from driving your amp directly from the Wadia. You can get better sound with a preamp but you will have to spend several times that amount. For me, to get better sound than the Wadia alone, I use an Aesthetix preamp (I'm sure I spelled that wrong and I'm too lazy to get up and go look). It's my opinion, of course, but I feel that if you can't get something that good or better, you will be disappointed.
