Excpet for an in built phono and convenient source switching options.
Why.. would anyone even consider.. yet another Contraption.. in the source path ?
Want Excellent? Look in here and consider a transformer volume control as passive Pre

AND if you have goofy impedence issues degrading your passive attempts? Buy a Pass Labs B1 buffer (50$)
Seriously unlikely spending a wheelbarrow of $$ will gain much beyond Bragging rights.
But then that's most of the motivation .. Ain't It :-)

there are many reasons to use an active and full featured preamp, too many to mention. I wouldn't want an Intact passive cuz I want a remote. I use a Placette. Multiple inputs, tape monitors, phono and so on are other reasons besides gain and impedance matching.

.....but I would say to also look at an LDR. Better performance than even TVCs.

I bookmarked that and some day I plan on building it.
