    @winders M-22 deserves the HF magic... that said, it would be nice to have some impressions here about the Sachs pre.

    @Marvey Count me in. I'll have serial #1 if winders doesn't want it ;) Hoping for something highly transparent and not too lean. Oh and it has to be gold-plated, obviously.

    I'm really interested too (especially w/ a phono input). If this could replace my Freya & Chinook it would be a no-brainer without completely breaking my wallet.

    Remote volume controls would be a must for me though.

    The coincident pre is legit. Priced very reasonably as well.

    I would be very interested if and only if there was a remote control for volume and price was under $2k.

    Phono stage would be a nice bonus, and would be willing to pay more (whatever price ended up being) but would still be interested without it

    Again, still early in the process... gathering requirements.

    Cool, I have some thoughts to kick around. Two resistor method of attenuation. No TVCs, no LDRs. Awesome trannies. Dual outputs. No headphone bullshit. No remote if it detracts from what you can do for the money (will do this if I have to)

    Hey @purr1n is this preamp any further past the concept stage yet?

    I need to check. I know he took a proto phonostage apart - the one I was using for a while.

    Cool. I'm interested in the version without a phono stage, in case you're counting, and assuming such a thing ever comes to exist.
