Tube Pre w/ Ex. Phono Stage
A click on my "system" link will lead you to my current rig. I'm moving to a smaller space, and I'd like to downsize my rig to a six shelf system (not incluing the amp). What I'd like to do is sell my pre, phono pre, and cdp and buy a tube pre with an excellent phono stage. I'd then use my current, crappy dvd player as a cdp (I listen to mostly vinyl anyway). So I need a tube pre with the following features:
1) A phono stage equal to or better than my current monolithic phono pre.
2) In addition to the phono stage, I need three line level inputs plus at least one tape loop.
The current value of my pre, phono pre, and cdp is about 1100$, and I will not spend more than that on a new pre. I'm leaning towards an Audible Illusions 3 (not the 3A) right now (which seems to go for around 700), but are there others I should be looking at? Thanks.
