Re: "And I have never heard an AR preamp I liked for what it is worth."

Indeed!
I've suffered such a fate so I know 1st-hand!! LOL!

on a more serious note (mostly to Bixby): some of the SP series preamps from the late 1970s & early 1980s are very, very good indeed esp. when they are modified to get rid of the aging parts + parts upgraded in the power supply & in the interstage coupling caps. They really can hold their own against today's $2000-$3000 preamps. They do have the signature ARC midrange bloom. If synergized with the correct amp, the overall system can be very enjoyable.
If you can listen to them again with a more open mind.
(BTW, i'm not an ARC fan either but I do try to give credit where credit is due & these SP series modified preamps are good!)
