Possibly needing to replace my Peachtree Decco. Ideally need a solid state preamp with remote (built in DAC a plus). I like a very lush sound, yet airy, if that makes sense! Tube-like but preferably without the tubes. Very musical above all else. Any recommendations? Could go up to $1k but the less the better. Was considering a Bel Canto DAC 2.5 or 3 but worried they may sound too "digital." Anyone have experience with the Bel Canto units? I may just end up having to sacrifice with no remote and/or go with tubes. There is a Transcendent Sound Grounded Grid and Juicy Music Merlin that are intriguing, but this system will get lots of hours with music, TV, and movies...so really want low maintenance. Any input welcome.
