RE: Hybrid Preamps

The Counterpoint 3.1 preamp was a really nice sounding preamp. Once upgraded, the level of this preamp went up a few notches. I wish I still had that preamp.

I still have a Counterpoint SA-1000 that is fully tricked out. That preamp is right there with the 3.1 preamp.

I hear the Counterpoint 5.1 preamp is the best that Mike Elliott ever made. I had two Counterpoint SA-3000 preamps and sold after a few months, I just couldn't get into their sound. Totally different from the SA-1000 and SA-3.1 preamps. Even the SA-5000 preamp wasn't all that sound wise.

What I really like from Counterpoint was their built in phono stages. Some of the best I have ever heard.
