Parasound P7, recently on sale for way less than $2k at authorized dealers. It's all analog: no DAC or digital inputs, but a pair of balanced inputs and 7.1 balanced outs, plus lots of unbalanced ins and outs. Phono stage, both MM and MC. Analog bass management. HT bypass (7.1). With a top flight universal player or an external DAC, it's quite the future proof unit. You change what feeds into it rather than get a new pre every time there's a new spec-o'-the-month.
