I'm on a path to upgrade my preamp, and came across this. Seems to have some good press on Audiogon and a few clues elsewhere. I'm wondering if any Wammers have experience with one, either the A2 or A2-SE models. It ticks quite a few of the boxes for what I'm looking for - balanced and SE ins and outs, remote, adjustable gain, tape output (doesn't seem to have a tape monitor though). The big one is the price, though I could certainly stretch the budget given time.
