I picked this up and am currently using my integrated as a pre.. I am looking for a preamp that will let my amp shine through, with not much coloration... I don't mind pre or solidstate design, as long as the preamp doesn't overpower my power amp and is transparent.. I can spend up to $3k cad.. want to get into the used market obviously. Looking for alternatives to pass labs gear, a used pass labs xp10 is still on my shortlist but I'd like to look at cheaper alternatives... I feel like it's possible to find something that fits my needs for far less but we'll see... hopefully.

just so you guys know the input impedance of the pass is 20k single ended, 30k balanced. I have been told that I should be looking at minimum 10 times multiple of output impedance in my preamp... and no gain at all...

my system is currently 96db sensitivity loudspeakers, and digital source.. not like it matters but I am still using stock cables and basic speaker wire for everything... just got into this hobby in august last year...

You should probably mention whether a remote or phono stage is imperative.

Has something changed from when you asked this question last week?
