Pre-Amp recommendation to go with Aragon 2005 amp

Can anyone recommend a good pre-amp. I am currently setup with a marantz sr8002 receiver and an aragon 2005 amplifier. I would like to replace the receiver with a good preamp. My budget is around $2000 to $3500. This setup is for a home theater and I watch movies and listen to music equally. I will need HDMI capabilities out of the preamp for sure. Thanks.
I use and very much enjoy the Integra DHC-9.9
It has been discontinued and should be affordable.
