I use a Sonic frontiers line 2 se with a Classe CA 200 with good results.

You have to decide on tube or solid state. As a former owner of the CP-60, I can't recommend it highly enough. The best SS preamp I ever owned or auditioned. That is a very extensive list too, including the likes of Krell and Levinson gear. That being said, I've currently forsaken SS for tubes, namely a BAT preamp. It's not as flexible as the Classe, and the bass isn't as strong, but there is something about the way it handles vocals that has me smitten.
Thanks for your responses guys. Looks like either one will do a good job!
Currently I'm using Classe CAP-100 integrated with B&W CDM 1SE speakers and no doubt I like the sound very much. It's just that I've seriously caught the bug. This will be my last upgrade for sure as I've spent my entire savings for this.
