    Depends on the power amp. The Rappaport is extremely revealing.

    I employed the PRE-2 happily for twenty years in my system using Tannoys, with either an Audio Concepts P300 Legend power amp or a Leak Stereo 20. The PRE-2 has no tone controls, but is otherwise like the PRE-1.

    Yes indeed, and at a bargain price.

    Also rare and also desirable is the Matisse pre:

    I have one and have had success pairing it with a Decca cartridge (Decca Mk.VI).
