I'm using a Perreaux SA3 preamp with my bryston 4B-NRB, which works quite well (snell C/V speakers). I don't know if the new perreaux stuff is similar to the old (SA3 is about ten years old), but you see them used here sometimes and sometimes on audioshopper. buying them new seems to be sort of a nuisance, as you go direct from new zealand rather than through dealers here. anyway, i think the sa3 retailed for about 3k when new, so the new ones are probably about the same. they're solid state, though, not tube.
