    Tons of option in the new and used $500 -$1.5k range. However, if you want something new for cheap, the Parasound Zpre3 has a bypass and is $349.


    This one Seems about right. Don't want to spend too much on it right now.

    So, you do have a limited budget...I understand very well.

    Like tony said, Tubes would be cool but new is going to be tough. Used Jolida Fusion, Peachtree, etc. Here's a used Quicksilver Audio Line Stage tube pre for $575:

    These have HT bypass option for $50 addl. new so maybe that used one has it or it can be sent in and added?

    Had I not had to drop almost 500 on repairs to a vehicle yesterday... was driving and heard a huge bang. Stepped on the gas and the rav sounded like a 16 year olds Honda civic. New exhaust, muffler and pipes and oil change. Trying to keep it for another 3 years while we pay for the rdx. Anyway thanks for all the info and perhaps I'll wait until tax refund time and splurge a bit more.
