Well im back looking at preamps again after my GT preamp was destroyed in a gig accident. I miss it but I think I can do better. So far my three choices are an Eden Navigator , a Epifani Quest II, and a SWR IOD. If anyone can recommend any of these please do. Sound is the main concern but why pay a grand when something $700 sounds almost as good. Oh, I play mostly jazz with some DMB style rock. Once in a while I plug up my upright but not much. Thanks guys for your time.
