Default good pre-amp for 300$

hi
I use a b1 pre amp, and want to see if I can make something bettter.

What do you guys suggest within 300$? I can go either passive or not. I need two outputs that will play simultanely because I use the preamp to bi amp my speakers. I also use the output, going into my midrange and tweeter, as a crossover that cut the signal around 300hz.
what is a definite step up from a B1 pre amp...

Improve the PS for your B1!? Even if you can't hear it (although you should be able to measure an improvement), at least you will have the experience to apply to your next project...

maybe I dont even need a pre amp?
only need a pre amp because I use it to bi-amp my speakers. one output is going into my mains, one output going into my bass speakers. I also just use a simple first order crossover for the mains to cut the signal around 300hz. Do I have another possibility that could be as good or better then any pre amp?

Maybe you only need headphones? Maybe it's all just about the music...

Hello Murphythecat8,

What are the speakers on your logo? It seems the woofer is in a separate box

Thanks,
Routhu
