Check out the Aronov LS9000 tube pre-amp which is usually for sale on Audiogon every one or two months. I think the most recent Audiogon posting for sale is by a Canadian store. I listen to a lot of music at home featuring violin. Simply as a listener who often sits in the concert hall, I think its musical accuracy will appeal to you. If you don't listen to anything except one source, such as CD's, then look into EVS Ultimate Attenuators which eliminate any separate pre-amp, by attaching directly onto the RCA input jacks of your amplifier. I use these with the older Cary SLA-70Sig classic amplifier driving the Clements RT-7 speaker with revealing ribbon tweeter, and it lets the amp do its thing without alteration of the sound I prefer, having tried different tubes in the amplifier until it sounds real to me.
