I have picked up a used Parasound Power amp and would like to use it in my study, so need a pre-amp to go along with it.

Any recommendations for a simple clean preamplifier? Hopefully with remote but is not a deal breaker. Even a simple box si okay, if the signal/noise ration and averall quality is good.

Well, not knowing your budget, options are a plenty. But assuming you want to keep things cost effective, I'd opt for a nice used tube pre from ARC, CJ, Modwright to name but a few.

Gives us a bit more specifics and we can take this further.

There are two Parasound PHP-850's on Audiogon right now. No remote control but I have read many good things about this inexpensive pre.

also depends what your source is. If you are planning just MP3s for example, you can skip the preamp all together and hook your MP3 player directly to the power amp.
