RE: Don't do it, change the source first

Buying a tube preamp to warm up a digital source is an expensive mistake that I tried and it did not really work. If it is warm enough to change the sound of your CD player, your vinyl may sound too warm and slow. If you ever change another component in the system that leans to the dark side you can end up with an unmusical dark system. Tube preamps are great, but you have to get the source right first to get the most out of them. Try a Marantz CD or Arcam CD player. Otherwise search Digital asylum for warm DAC recs.
