I recently switched over to an Akitika GT-102 for driving my LS3/5A, and decided to try out the matching Aktika PR-102. PR-102 is probably my favorite preamp I have ever purchased, fantastic well thought out functionality/remote, very neutral/transparent, and phono stage and headamp that punch way above their price bracket...but I am not digging the synergy with my system. As people are noting in the GT-102 impressions, it can really benefit from a more colored preamp. I would like to try out a Freya+, but they are sold out from Schiit currently. Considered the Saga+ as this is an all SE setup, but the no tube shutdown is kind of a dealbreaker for me as I like to leave on 24/7 and run passive while listening to my headphone amps. If you have a Freya+ you are willing to part with for cash, or trade for the PR-102 (fully loaded with phono preamp, and headphone amp with 1/4" jack custom mod, was $1,024 total built/shipped), let me know!
