have a look on eBay and do a search of other sites selling kit by using Google
i don't think you will get an active pre-amp with proper xlr circuaty second hand for that price, but good luck.:dude:

might be able to find a pro-product for a reasonable price, but I doubt there are many fully-balanced 'hi-fi' preamps floating around for that money (not to say that there aren't any if you look hard though).

beacause i want to take the signal out of the pre amp then into my Tannoy TS8 Sub which has a high pass filter (the connectors are XLR) then from that into a power amp then on to my speakers.

so it doesn't neceserally have to be balance circuit desing does it, if not i can ask friends in the retail to see if they have some px stuff,
