Who makes great active preamps ? Tube or solid state or hybrid.

It appears, it is not Pass, Rowland, even Lamm etc. Who then ? 
I heard about Ypsilon, though some say it is a little bright and forward sounding.

Shindo, Luxman, Nagra, Leben all make great preamps
Shindo, Luxman, Nagra all make excellent preamps.

CAT also makes an excellent preamp.

I have heard all in a system I am intimately familiar with or my home system.

What is your listening experience with Pass, Rowland and Lamm?
