Re: WTB Preamp

1. What's your budget?
2. What other components will you be using with it?

Re: WTB Preamp

I would like to keep it under 200.00. I just bought a Phase Linear for 400.00. So right now I'm working on the wifes budget.
Thanks

Re: WTB Preamp

You can get a used C-1 for WELL under $200 and they are probably one of the best values in preamp you're likely to find.

Re: WTB Preamp

Wish I could afford a dragon. I have 5 Naks sitting here and 2 Yamahas and another in the shop. But I guess you can PM me the price so I can cry. :o
