Default Other pre-amps by Nelson Pass (other than GFP750)

Hello,

I am looking for a pre-amp to match up with my Aleph 30.

I know the GFP750 is a good pre-amp and a good value.

What are other good pre-amps that were designed by Nelson Pass but sold under Adcom or Nakamichi etc.

Is the GFP710 any good?

I have a Welborne Labs Borbely designed linestage pre-amp but want to try a Nelson Labs designed product. I do not have the funds to buy a Pass Labs but would like to try something designed by Nelson Pass and possibly tweak it.

Any input or suggestions greatly appreciated.

Cheers
Kevin

What is it that you need in a preamp?

I do not need any type of phono section.

Just a line level pre-amp with volume control and source switching for a few sources. I will primarilly use a CD player as a source and maybe an I-Pod dock if I can find one that sounds decent (maybe the Wadia one?)

I do not need any phase adjustment or mono option.

Cheers

Kevin

Is this available as a DIY project? Or is it a FirstWatt product that must be purchased complete?

OK, The B1 looks like a great option.

That being said, how about the original question, is there any consumer branded pre-amps that have Nelson Pass lineage?

Cheers
