Tube Preamp to go with Bryston SST2 amp and Magnepan 1.7i speakers

Hello, I'm looking for a good tube preamp to go with a Bryston SST2 amp and Magnepan 1.7i speakers.  My budget is $2000-3000.  I like to listen to a wide range of music, from Dire Straits to Blues to Jazz. I have my stereo in a medium sized room, and listen at moderate levels.

Thanks for your input!
Have owned several iterations of Bryston amps over the years and I can tell you in no uncertain terms that pairing with a tube pre amp is essential.A tube pre will add that touch of romance and naturalness and still retain the articulate bass slam that Bryston provides.Audio Research and Cary come to mind.

Thanks for your thoughts.

My Aric Special is the 1st 6SN7 pre I have owned. Using the tube supplied by Aric. When I need replacements I will likely turn to Aric. 
"...Would I be crazy to decide to go with a Bryston Preamp, rather than a tube preamp..."

No you would not.   
A Don Sachs linestage meets your budget:

His preamps are based on 6SN7 tubes. They are hand built by Don so he can customize them to match your amp’s impedance.

Don’s a great guy and easy to talk to.

Check out ModWright. Used to own an earlier version of the SWL 9.0 and felt it bettered ARC’s at least up to the LS25 MK II. It’s a great preamp that has killer PRaT. Not a fat tube sound, but very musical and very open. I felt the ARC’s felt cold and lean compared to the little ModWright. Here’s the current model.
