Tube phono amp with a SS preamp, good idea ?
I have a SS preamp that has the usual built in op-amp phono amp. I am looking into a tube phono amp.
Will the great sound of a tube phono amp carry through the SS preamp more or less intact to my tube power amp?
Or, is it absolutely necessary to have a all tube preamp also? I just got the tube power amp, my first piece of tube gear, and am blown away by the sound quality. So I thought a tube phono amp would be a good next step without blowing the bank on a all tube pre amp that will not have all the switching and other features of my SS preamp.
Thanks for any thoughts, Mike
