Home Amp/Preamp Asylum

Looking for a new Amp or Preamp? If you're after tubes, post over here.

Gotcha! Is there a standalone preamp you could compare that to?

Local guy just had a Showcase for $250 that he shipped to somebody via my shop. Quick ebay search has one at $470...

I'm mostly looking in this direction because if I do an amp upgrade soon, I really want a pre with balanced outputs. AND? I've tended to find preamps/line stages often make a MUCH bigger difference than the amp does.

In other other words? I could find a really scruffy ARC LS3 (which I like a LOT) for little money, and run into unbalanced amps. Or, I can get a great deal on some amps that really prefer a balanced input, and find that standout cheapskate preamp... :)
