    I'm wondering what's out there for a two channel preamp. What I am looking for is pretty specific:

    -two channels
    -with independent levels
    -independent eqs
    -Preferably graphic eq or parametric
    -I'd love a 1u but that's probably pushing it
    -rather not spend a gazillion dollars

    Pair an ART PC II with your Aguilar TH.

    Seriously try it.
  3. I used to have the Furman PQ-6 and PQ-3 back in the 80s, very nice sounding as I recall.

    If you really don't need the para or graphic eq I really really like the Alembic F2B. That's 1 U, 2 channels, and tubes, basically the Fender Showman preamp and tone stack.

    No graphic EQ but perhaps a Pearce BC1?

    What about a rack mount stereo graph or parametric? +1 on the Furman stuff.

    yes any stereo graphic EQ will do just fine.

    If you don't mind a two-space unit that has a 900 watt power amp included, the ShuttleMax 9.2 is pretty awesome... Great eq, combine or switch channels, FET and tube channels, independent drive and volume per channel, fx loop per channel and combined.

    And it probably weighs less than a lot of preamp-only units.
