Thanks all for your quick responses. Im looking for a line preamp, no phono stage needed. Denon DVD-1600 (24bit/192sampling DAC) as the main input plus a digital cable TV box and a Sirius satellite radio, so 3 inputs would be nice.
Pmwoodward: Im using SignalCable analog2 ICs http://signalcable.com/analogtwo.html
Would require a minimum of 3 sets to change. Any suggestions that are moderately priced?
Gmood1: Im having trouble finding much info on the Dared SL2000a. The Dared site lists a SL2000 but not a SL2000a, is that the remote version? Where can I buy one..dealers? My web searching doesnt turn up any current info other then the Dared site.
Soundwatts and Rx8man: The CJ PV11 looks about right. Small enough to fit in my current space and has 2 outputs but seems to be very much in demand judging by the wanted adds and lack of for sale listings. I see plenty of PV10s and PV12s for sale are they similar in sonic qualities? If I buy a pre with only one set of outputs is there a penalty for using Y cords or the Y adapter that Tara Labs sells http://www.taralabs.com/catalog/catalog_product.asp?ID=F5A15198D520443AB580515FA56108CE
JAB: Thanks for the warning :)
Brainwater: Starting to agree with you on the harshness of the Adcoms and DefTechs especially in a pretty bare 18x18 room. Will try another pre-amp before I start over again(wife will love to hear that!)
