I use a First Sound with an X-150. The impedance match is sub-optimal, but I like it anyway. A great preamp, truly great, but no balanced out or remote, alas.

I was at Rangers Audio Saturday and compared an Audible Illusions M3A to a Rogue 99 Magnum hooked to a Pass Labs X350 driving Quad 988s and preferred the Rogue. While we did not directly compare at this session, I believe the Rogue would even be a strong competitor to the much more expensive Pass X-1 Pre. Of course, your results could vary depending upon your system and tastes.
