Pre-amp: separate VHF & UHF 75 ohm inputs

Is anyone still making good quality pre-amps with separate VHF & UHF inputs?

The RCA TVPRAMP1R can be switched from combined to separate and is very affordable with generally positive reviews.

And the AntennaCraft 10G222 is a dual input only with a very high gain suitable for fringe only. Reviews are also very positive but fewer of them due to the fringe only application.

Radio Shack shows a lower gain version:

16dB VHF and 22 dB UHF gain with separate inputs. Same noise figure.

RCA and AntennaCraft (Radio Shack) are the only ones that still offer dual inputs. The AntennaCrafts are always dual input, the RCA is switchable between combined and separate.

Everything else out there is ultra wideband with the exception of the Winegard LNA200. That one has a single input and a U/V diplexer built in so that there are separate internal amplification paths internally. That extra diplexer and other input filtering is also why the measured noise figure is well under their claims (on the unit I've tested).
