Why have you not included this one in the list ?Hi all,
I have been working on my system since almost a year and after multiple changes have been very close to get it final. I have completed my digital end, very happy with speakers and amp. My amp is Audia flight strumento no.4 mk2 and drives the speakers extremely good. I am now looking to upgrade the preamp. I am OK with either tube or solid state. The amp`s input impedance is 7.5 Kohms and hence looking for preamp with output impedance < 200-300 ohms, lesser the better. Price < 20 k, preferably less than 15 k (if used). I have short listed to these. Unfortunately, even though audio research is very well reviewed, their output impedance is high for my preamp. Any thoughts or experience on these or suggestions will be appreciated.
Conrad Johnson GAT 2 S2
VTL TL-7.5 S3
VAC signature Mk 2 SE.
Audionet pre G2
Used esoteric C1
Is it not widely distributed / popular / available for audition in the states ?
And what about a second hand Lamm LL1 sign , that goes for around 20 K second hand i think ?
