Thanks for the input.  I'll add Tavish to the list.  People seem to just love it and it sounds like what I'm looking for - thoughts?

Charles, anything special on the power supply?

I have owned the Vista.  Excellent for the $$.

I currently own the Tavish Vintage 6SL7,  JuicyMusic Tercel Mk2,  and Blue Circle BC27-pi.   All can be had used in the 500 to 700 dollar range.   All handle both MM and MC.   I recommend all these units without hesitation.

The Juicy might be a bit tough to find now that Mark Dineen is no longer in the game.  A few years ago I'd see them fairly frequently on the used markets, but I think guys have figured out just how good they are and are holding onto them.  Same thing with the JM preamps (Blueberry, Peach and Merlin).   I also own the Blueberry Xtreme.

Thanks all.  Tried to look at the Juicy Music but looks like the site has been hacked.  Can't get anywhere and antivirus flagged a redirect virus.  Got any deeper links or contact info?

JM is out of business so new is not possible.  Used is the only option. 

Go to the Klipsch forum, the guys over there love the JM stuff.  On that board I see more posts discussing it and FS ads than anywhere else. 

Search on "juicy music" (with the quotes) and 33 pages returns, including some recent FS ads.

Mark (JM designer / builder) used to post over there frequently under the name "mdeneen"  but somehow all his posts have disappeared.....wiped clean....only hint of his existence is follow-up posts quoting his posts.  I'm not familiar with that board so I don't know how that happens.
