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

RE: I definitely agree that the Prems. are superior to my pre.

Another VERY viable option is sending that Premier 3 to Bill Thalmann and have him upgrade it with better parts bringing it into the 21st Century. I took this path a year and a half back with a PV9a. To say that there was a very significant improvement can not communicate to you the level of improvement in ALL parameters that one can communicate and subsequent engagement factor. The phono stage in this pre-amp is the best I've ever owned including vintage ARC and CAT. The PV 10 can't be discussed in the same vein as these preamps, built to a price point, smaller power supply and overall an opaque presentation, lacking at the frequency extremes however musical overall, certainly very enjoyable, I have a friend with one.
