I am hitting the boards looking for a used tube pre amp. I have about $1000 US to spend. I have a used McIntosh 2100 and a pretty nice turntable. Any ideas of what to look for?
I've seen Audio Research preamps go for that on a-gon. Audio Research is one of the quintessential tube audio manufacturers. Maybe a Conrad Johnson. Both company's are mostly responsible for the resurgence of tube equipment in general. VTL stuff is amazing too.
