Tube preamp suggestion

Hello everyone,

I am looking at buying a tube preamp for my setup, I use a vault 2 with qobuz and CD’s ripped in,  schiit bifrost multibit as my dac, odyssey cyclops integrated with passive pre, maggie 1.7i and for cables I use BEL

The main reasons to go for a preamp is to get the tube sound, then in future my intention is to upgrade to mono blocks and definitely would like to have a remote.

I made some choices just based on research, never got a chance to listen. i need some good suggestions as to what might be a good fit. I am looking at spending maximum of 3k.

Rogue rp1

Primaluna evo200

Don saches


Odyssey Candela

Rotel base

Freya +

Decware preamp

Thank you!

When I called deHavilland, I left a message, she called back and left me a voicemail, she did say she is on "sabbatical". She did say she has some used units for sale, not sure if they are amps or preamps. May be worth a call if you are interested in a deHavilland. At least you know they have been gone through.
Thank you @paulcreed for checking! I am yet to call them. Will be doing that soon.
Regarding deHavilland and the Ultraverve preamp, Kara has left the building. Recently, I’ve been in email contact with her and bribed her with premium Vermont syrup and money to upgrade my Mercury 3 with the newest and most premium V caps.  She graciously accepted and completed the work.

She is taking a sabbatical from the business and driving patients around.  I’m not kidding here.  Anyway, the results were astonishing and brought under control the bass.  She also gave tube recommendations which improved everything.  I thank her.

She is quite gifted, but for personal reasons is out.
I have reduced my list to Don saches, dehavilland, primaluna & decaware. I wrote an email to Don and waiting for a reply. While spoke to upscale audio regarding Primaluna. Today hopefully if time permits will talk try to reach other 2. Thanks @nordicnorm! I will let you know if I might be able to get one :).
@celtic66 any additional customization that you would suggest with Don Saches?
