The gamut is a very good amp and you may want to consider mating it with something special like the Hovland hp 100 when one comes available.

I've got a Marsh P2000b and find it to be transparent to things that change around it, so it should allow the benefits of the GamuT to shine through. It has a very refined sound without sacrificing air, space, and detail. I've heard people having problems with the P2000t, so I'd stay away from that.
I also think the GFP750 is a good choice and probably a great value used, but I had it in my system a looong time ago when my components were very different, so I can't really compare. Best of luck.
I own a Gamut D200 Mk.II for a couple of years.
Trust me on this one - Juicy Music Audio Peach linestage - $1495 new. Tremendous match for the Gamut using its Low Impedance output setting. You will lose none of the beautiful transparency of the Gamut and will gain all of the tube magic- dimensionality, spaciousness, sweetness, etc.
Bested Shindo Aurieges (probably an impedance mismatch), Manley Shrimp, Modwright SWL 9.0 and a couple of other linestages.
I must also say the new Peach preamp is the best tube pre I have ever owned, great design, great parts, no noise, great support from Mark a one man show!!! This preamp can crank up without any strain, when I first got it I brought it over to friend's house and hooked it up to his system!!! High end system Aerial 10t, Wadia 6 front end and mono blocks Hafler DH200 SS amps modded by Musical Concepts. His mouth hit the ground when we put the Peach in the mix, now he own's one too!!!!! It's also one of the fastest selling preamps on Audiogon, one or two day's and there gone. You will love it!!!!
