Default What Pre-amp has given you good results with your T-Amp?

I'm wondering what pre-amp are you using for your T-Amps?

I have removed the volume functionality out of my t-amps, and am now running them at full power.

I have tried several pre-amps and believe I have finally found a clear cut winner.

First I tried the JEC, I purchased it based of a TNT Audio review. I then swapped that out for a Carver C2, then a HK Citation11. Next I purchased a Musical Fidelity, then a Luminous Audio Axiom. I also tried a Bottlehead foreplay.

The only one that truly impressed me, is the passive Luminous Audio Axiom.

I seemed to have the worst results with the Tube pre-amps. The Vintage HK, and Carver introduced a level of distortion. The JEC robbed a portion of the soundstage.

Out of all the above, the Luminous Audio Axiom is my clear cut choice. If you heard it with the T-Amps, you would swear it's not even there.
A man with few answers, and many questions. Still in a parasitic stage, opportunistically drawing upon the knowledge of others.

I liked my valve pre with the class-T amps (I used the Autocostruire 2020). Details of that valve pre are here .

If the valve thing doesnt do it for you, the best SS pre that I have tried is the one I built to go with a Charlize amp. Details can be found on this page .

But is sounds as though you have found your ideal pre so is your question purely academic?
The truth need not be veiled, for it veils itself from the eyes of the ignorant.
