Audiolab 8000C ($1,100. MSPR new). Used?? This is also solid state. For tube some of the Sonic Frontiers preamps have headphone amps, but I don't think the ones with phono. Such as the SF Anthem Pre-1L and Pre-2L linestage models have very nice headphone amps, but the Pre-1 with phono does not. Check the other SF models. Maybe you'll need to consider separate headphone amp or separate phono stage after all, depending on which preamp you like.
