Preamplifier with bypass and phono?

I have a Bel Canto DAC3 which sounds much better driving the power amp directly than thru the preamplifier (a vintage Adcom)

Can anyone suggest a decent preamplifier with a true bypass, and hopefully a phono stage as well? I looked at the Parasound 2100, but the reviews seem underwhelming regarding sound quality.

Older used gear is ok. Thanks

Anyone fami,air with Emotiva?

Doing a bit more research, I found the Emotiva USP-1, which seems to have the right spec, and one good review. At only $400, I wonder about build and quality. ' expected to pay a multiple of that, but don't have to.
