Cheap pairing for an ADCOM GFA-535 amp?

Folks,
I have an ADCOM GTP-400 that I bought along with the amp back in the early 80s, but the pre-amp is now dropping the right channel off and on. I've checked the solder jobs on the board and tried to correlate the drops with jiggling the selector knob, but I can't nail it down.

At this point, I give up on the GTP-400 and am ready to swap it out once and for all.

I don't want to spend too much, as I'll be getting a more modern system for the living room, and this will be a secondary setup for my workshop.

Any ideas on what to pair up so I can listen to the radio, my vinyl and maybe plug in my iPod (though I'd be willing to drop that source)?

Thx,
Dan

Emotiva USP-1?

Or a whole host of used preamps available.

Sherbourn and Emotiva share the same parent company.

The one thing that really bothers me about the Sherbourn PRE-1, not that it will affect its performance as a preamplifier, is that on the Sherbourn PRE-1 webpage it states that this unit has the "Intelligent Features" of an "...integrated bass manager for 2.1 operation and adjustable high-pass and low-pass outputs and a headphone output, the PRE-1 is ready for virtually any system." Well, the unit does not have a subwoofer output and there is nothing in the manual about how to configure high-pass or low-pass outputs. I'm surprised at this lack of attention to detail displayed by Sherbourn. I haven't seen anything like it from Emotiva.
