How good can this headphone amp/pre amp be?

At head-fi, people seems to really like that headphone amp, some replacing 3k cavalli headphone amp for the Elise. I also need a pre amp for my system but im wondering how good the pre amp is...

Felik Elise

including low impedance headphones (32 ohm). Alternatively, Elise can be used as pre-amp for both tube
and transistor amplifiers.
- Incredibly detailed and dynamic music scene
- Virtually no backround noise
- Beautifully hand-crafted
- Broad frequency: 15 Hz – 45 kHz
- Great tuning potential (via upgraded tubes)

Elise is built with two 6AS7G (also accepts 6080, via the included adaptor) power tubes and two driver
6SN7 tubes. Power supply is based on a custom made stabilized toroidal transformer with electronic
ripple suppression. The amplifier is equipped with automatic bias circuit, therefore no re-tuning is
required after changing tubes.Please note that the optimal sound quality will be reached after
approximately 30 – 50 hours of run-in.
- Impedance: 100 k ohm
- Frequency response: 10 Hz - 60 Khz +/- 3 dB (300 ohm)
- Power output: 200mW
- THD: 0.4 % (300 ohm, 20 mW)
- Optimal headphones impedance: 32 - 600 ohm
- Headphones output: Jack 6.3mm
- AC: 230V / 120V (region dependent, power cord included)
- Weight: 4.5 kg (7.7 lbs)
- Dimensions: 310x205x170 [mm] (12.2x8.1x6.7 [inch])
