    Got my Dared SL-2000a pre-amp back from a local tech and I'm loving it. I really enjoyed it and then all of a sudden the E80CC's would stop lighting up and the music would cut out. So it sat for a 2 or 3 years while I used a Schiit Sys then a Kenwood C2 but I always remembered how good the Dared sounded. Finally had it fixed up and I'm psyched. Especially excited to do some tube rolling. Just wanted to share. Have the pre hooked up to a Pass F5 clone. Speakers are Klipsch Forte I with ALK xo's.

    Thanks everyone. Any SL-2000A owners out there? Would love to hear what tubes you like. Can't help but think of Kegger (RIP) with this thing. I didn't know him but I know he was well-loved by this community...and he was a great source of info on this pre.
