You have more choices than just the JC2. Parasound just coming out with the new P5 stereo pre-amp, and then there is the P7 MC pre-amp, which I have. The P7 is a great pre...especially if you have a TT. The phono stage is excellent. The P7 has analogue BM for stereo sources, as well.

Custom, one of a kind pair, MJC212 mains, mod PT800 center, PT800 surrounds, SUB1500s. Parasound P7, Citation 19, Parasound HCA2205A, HK AVR3600, Marantz TT, Samsung BD player, Denon DVD-A player, MacBook Pro w/ DragonFly DAC.

The P7 will still be a better preamp than the P5 and would be a great match with an Oppo 105.

Main Kef: Reference 205/2 & 202/2c, Surrounds: Kef XQ40, Velodyne Optimum 12, Integra DHC 80.3, Ayre K-5xeMP, Oppo BDP-103, Bryston 4Bsst2, Parasound Halo A31. Second B&W: 685 (3), CCM618, Def Tech Powerfield 1500, Onkyo TX-NR1008, Zone 2 Klipsch AW650.

That statement s based on what? I don't think anyone has managed to get their hands on a P5 yet.
The P7 is a very good pre...and I would not expect the P5 to be any less, except for having 5 less channels.
