Preamp Deal of the Century

If anyone is looking for a true "World Class" preamp at a very fair price..heed my advice. I just recieved a Supratek Syrah preamp that was hand built by Mick Maloney in Western Australia, and it is absolutely beautiful! This preamp is the best deal you will ever find. I would put it up against any preamp out there for both looks and sound. Price? $2500 for the Syrah (includes Killer Phono stage). Not into phono? Try the Chardonney line stage for $2100. Don't get me wrong, I am not associated with this company. I am just a very happy owner! This preamp is VERY dynamic, yet liquid. It conveys the sound of music better than any other preamp that I have ever heard! You can check out the Supratek website at www.
How would you describe the Supratek sound ?
Dark, big/bold clean, warmish ? or any other words you would like to describe the sound, is it fast sounding, does it have good rhythm and a black background ? Is the timbre and decay of instruments truthful  ?

It SUCKs....Dat’s why I bought a New Chardonnay GEN 3 Pre that replaced my $8000 BAT 32se Pre..and beat it in every important Audiophile Parameter!!....It’s sound is "like a color you never seen before and a Flavor you never tasted"...No "audiophile speak" can do it justice.."my opion" wanna break out your "audio crayons" and color the sound to your taste...go ahead... lot of great 6SN7’s out there!...Take the $2000 plunge..What do you have to lose?...If you don’t think Micks New Pre"s are not The Rave we think and Know they are (who own the new GEN 3) ...Sell will be sold in A New York Min!..Since the New GEN 3 hit the ground ...Mick is Backed up a few jump in...the Audio Supratek water is VERY warm!!
1. Phono stage (LCR in my Cortese) is superb. Note that Allnic charges many many thousands of dollars (I'm not confident of the prices I've seen in my searches on the 'net tonight and don't want to guesstimate) but it is included in the Cortese. The Allnic gear is very beautiful and I would love to try it some time, but it's way beyond my budget.
2. Description of the Supratek sound - Gorgeous. Please track down my review of the Cortese which is probably somewhere in this thread or somewhere nearby. This preamp convinced me that tubes are not "introducing euphonic distortion" (at least not in this equipment). They are simply conveying what is in the recording. The line stage has greatly increased the pleasure I derive from streaming.
Hi Marcus,
Having purchased the Allnic H7000 a few months back I can certainly vouch for it's presentation. Had I known about the Cortese I would have gone in that direction primarily for the savings. Of all my components the Allnic disappears to the greatest extent. 
Albert Porter is a great source for Allnic gear, and did me right. 
That said, Mick has done a great job providing thousands of music listeners with hi quality units at reasonable prices. His preamp is the perfect match for my amps.
