    Pre-amp for Parasound 2250?

    A Parasound P3 would be a perfect match and in your price range.

    Preamp benefits

    I agree with Snoopy. Try it direct from your Dac first. Then see if you can borrow a preamp or two and see if you like what you hear. I used to use my Audiolab DAC direct in my study system (I have 6 systems in my house & workshop), but now run a Auralic Taurus preamp in that sytem. I prefer the sound through the pre, but in the end it is up to one's individual taste.

    Bloody cold last night out at Ipswich as well. Happy to help with the turntables as well (I'm well versed with the "darkside") 😉 cheers, Andrew
