commercial tube preamps
 
Hello, i'm looking for commercial tube preamps under $1000 (or thereabouts). I was wondering if somebody could give me some names of them.. Although this may not be the site to do this :D

So far this is what has turned up:
1. Audio Electronic Supply AE3 Super Preamp (by Cary Audio) $600
2. Quicksilver Audio Line Stage Preamp $1095

Thanks!

They need to be available in the U.S. :cool:

Check out Antique Sound Labs. They have a couple of preamps that fit your budget. Great for modding as well. I've re-work several with excellent results.

You could also try the preamps from Transcendent Sound or Audio by Van Alstine both of which are good and well within your price range.

Go second hand. There are a pile of audiophiles out there who change equipment more often than they change their underwear, and you can get more for your money. MUCH more.

Or... radical notion... diy. For a thou, you can build something incredibly impressive.

Underwear??? What's that???

Sy is right about either keeping your eyes on Audiogon and other sites for excellent used gear.
And DIY? Unless you have previous experience and have a good box, I would stay with commercial. That said, I am being mentored by a diyaudio veteran in building a Pass Aleph 3, and really enjoying the experience. Next will be the preamp!
Good luck!:D

I see that Zion hasn't changed much since my days there ;)
