How about a tubed phono stage with additional input for a CD player or tuner?
I tried the same thing, lokking for a great tube pre with remote. The ones I wanted cost bigger bucks than I wanted to spend and the others like the Hovland, First Sound, Lamm, had no remote. I ended up with the BAT VK-30SE. You may want to try the BAT VK-31SE or the VK-50SE (it can be upgraded to the 51SE) to see how they sound versus your SS pre.
