You just got your self a nice amp so why cheap out now on a preamp especially if you want to be satisfied for years to come as you mentioned? I have the Mccormack DNA .5 Deluxe and did the preamp search thing several years ago. After trying the passive route first I found the Mccormack matchs up well with a tubed preamp and run mine through a CJ- PV 12 AL which is a sweet combination. I've never felt the urge to upgrade either component (unlike most other audio gear I've purchased in the past) and I've had this set up for 6 years now which tells me I must have done something right finally in my system.
