I want to upgrade the pre section in my system. I have a NAD integrated, but I plan to keep using the power amp section. I am looking for something that has the smoothe non-fatiguing sound of tubes, but it doesn't have to be a tubed pre... if a SS unit can do it that is fine. The kicker is that I need it to have a remote control...
I was considering the creek passive preamp or just getting the updated NAD c162 pre section, but I thought about asking you guys.
In this thread below I was looking for speakers, but someone suggested a preamp instead for what I was trying to do... and I liked the idea, so what would you guys recommend?
Excuse me do you think that the "tubey" quality can be extended to all Naim preamps or it is peculiar of the model you mention ?
Thanks and regards,
A 112 had what characterised as *smooth and mellow* presentation than other Naim preamps I have listened to.
I just assumed the original poster wanted a typical tube sound as that's what most people turn to a tube gear for the most part. i.e. warm, spacious and cuddly
The Naim sounds very nice except it is over my budget. I did find something that looks promising at a good price, though...
There are some hybrid integrateds from Jolida Audio that look very nice and they seem to fit what I am looking for... They even have a remote.
Thank you very much for your extremely kind and valuable reply.
the rogue audio 66 is a very good little preamp and is available with a remote, easily upgradeable and can be had inexpensively on the used market.
