    Ah, yes. Now we're talking!

    Just make sure you have enough steps. I needed 48 which led me to the Khozmo but there are plenty of options. I'm sure Goldpoint do a 48 version

    More is better, you'll have better control over volume not only for quiet listening but smaller jumps when you increase it. This was the main reason I didn't buy Ali's Slagle as it only had 13 and was no good for quiet listening even at 1 on my system.

    Yep. Fantastic Preamp that. I bought it in the end but the volume Steve's were too large as Mike says.

    I used a 50k series. I was told be Alan and Rothwell that this is what they would fit. And have.

    As for the Value, it's worth a second opinion as you are using valves. Hopefully a valve Guru will respond

    Can't see that being bad advice. I use 50k and that's with valves or SS so yeah, go for it.
