Timbrel Accuracy

IYO, what preamp(s) have the best accuracy in the timbres?
IMO, the best pre ever assembled to deal particularly with its accuracy in the timbers was the lumberjack. monty python, of course, did the famous commercial for it. here's the original script:

The Lumberjack Song

I never wanted to do this in the first place!
I... I wanted to be...


(piano vamp)

Leaping from tree to tree! As they float down the mighty rivers of
British Columbia! With my best girl by my side!
The Larch!
The Pine!
The Giant Redwood tree!
The Sequoia!
The Little Whopping Rule Tree!
We'd sing! Sing! Sing!

Oh, I'm a lumberjack, and I'm okay,
I sleep all night and I work all day.

CHORUS: He's a lumberjack, and he's okay,
He sleeps all night and he works all day.

I cut down trees, I eat my lunch,
I go to the lavatree.
On Wednesdays I go shoppin'
And have buttered scones for tea.

Mounties: He cuts down trees, he eats his lunch,
He goes to the lavatree.
On Wednesdays he goes shoppin'
And has buttered scones for tea.


I cut down trees, I skip and jump,
I like to press wild flowers.
I put on women's clothing,
And hang around in bars.

Mounties: He cuts down trees, he skips and jumps,
He likes to press wild flowers.
He puts on women's clothing
And hangs around.... In bars???????


I chop down trees, I wear high heels,
Suspenders and a bra.
I wish I'd been a girlie
Just like my dear papa.

Mounties: He cuts down trees, he wears high heels
Suspenders and a .... a Bra????
(mounties break off song, and begin insulting lumberjack)

Girl: (crying) I thought you were so rugged!
Kelly- Have you gone off your meds again ;)?
I think Cornfedboy may be operating a couple watts shy of rated power tonight.
The best preamp in that category I have heard, and own, is the Air Tight.
Cornfed, some of us appreciate the complete lyrics to this song.

Perhaps if you had titled it "The Timbre Jack," a larger base of audiophiles would have accepted it.
Not to worry, its only a flesh wound.
I think "Cornie" has been hanging around with Steve Rochlin over at "that OTHER audio site". How else would you explain his sudden case of dementia and the need to post "song" ( if you want to call it that ) lyrics ??? Medication indeed... : ) Sean
LOL, that's really funny.
Seriously my vote goes to the Thor TA-1000.
The Best out there Atma-Sphere MP-1 MKll.2 tubes...
Pass XO, X1 and Mark Lev Ref.
Also Atma-Sphere MP-3 MKll.2, Pass X2
Aesthetix with as many PS you can fit in the room, FM Acoustics (ze big model), Pass X0. All three, cheapo.
Well, interesting responses above indeed!

Taking a break from my skipping and jumping, I see that two of the lines I carry, Thor and Atma-Sphere, have already been recommended. I love it when people agree with me.

I might add that Atma-Sphere pre-amps and Atma-Sphere amps together have a most musical synergy. If you're using a single-ended amplifier, then the Thor is what you're looking for. I use these pre-amps to demo big full range Sound Lab electrostats, which are perhaps the most timbrally rich and revealing speakers out there.

And now off to press some wildflowers...
