SS Preamp Suggestions Please


Hello,
I have the following system:
Sonic Frontiers Power 2 tube amp,
QUAD 22L2 cone based speakers,
Jolida JD-100 Underwood Lvl 1 tube cd player,
Arcam DV-137 used for SACD, HDCD, DVD-A playback,
modded Cambridge 640P phono pre & Thorens TD-290,
Sansui TU-517 tuner.

I currently have a tube pre and am pleased with the sound. However, I'd like to try a used SS pre for < $1000 that is very detailed but yet still musical.
Remote and phono section are not required but would prefer 2 pairs of RCA outs although I do have splitters if required. Tape loop would be nice but not required.

Preamps I'm considering so far:
AR LS9,
Musical Fidelity A3RC or A308CR,
Adcom GFP-750
Van Alstine ???

Can you share your opinions, feedback, on the above or any others?
Thanks and have a wonderful New Year

No contest, Van Alstine and be sure to get the remote.
What model or models Van Alstine do you recommend?
Thanks
The single most eye (ear) opening experience i have ever had with pre amps was when i tried a Placette Passive in leiu of my CJ PV 12. This was the first time i ever heard my individual components direct and un fetted by other gain stages, i realized what an extreme impact low level signals have on the total experience. I since moved into the Pass Labs X-1 and have never looked back. The Pass combined the wonderous sonics of a low level gain stage (or higher, selectable) with the precision volume control of a stepped ladder, optically coupled for signal separation. I always thought that sources and power amps carried more impact in changing the way things sounded, but i now have become one of the believers in low level signal devices. Hope you find something that allows a similar experience, it is truly enlightening! Best wishes.
CJ PF-R. Have had one for years, love it.
I think you should take a look Klyne;Stan Klyne makes some of the best solid state pre amps in high end audio;either a series 6 or 7 is what I would be looking for;if you don't need balanced inputs and outputs then the series 6 would do the job.
Check his website if you need more info or even call Stan as he is a great guy to talk audio with.
I can vouch for the ARC LS-9.
Can't understand why you want a SS pre.
Tubes really pay off in the front end.
A SS amp -now that makes sense...
The PS Audio PCA-2 is one of the best at any price. The only thing I've tried and liked better was the Pass Labs X0 and it could be a little bright on some material. It's also much more money.
