Hi guys,

I’m looking for a decent but inexpensive pre-amp to help drive my Adcom GFA-545 II with phono, SQB touch, CD player and FM tuner if not already included. A remote would be nice as well. Any ideas? All of this will end up going out some SDA-CRS speakers
I like to listen, tinker, listen and repeat.

    Good question. I would say more than 100 less than 300.

    With a decent phono, might be hard to find in that price range. Vintage Adcom/Carver/B&k/Parasound might fall into that price range but some may not have phono's or remotes.

    Here's a nice NAD.....no remote but has phono

    Speaking of NAD, the 1600 would be a good fit for your needs. There are 2 or 3 on the 'Bay right now in your price range.
