I have an opportunity to buy a Crown IC 150A

Preamp for $200. I know Crown had a sketchy rep in the 70s, but was a decent preamp. I've had a Dynaco PAT4 and I was satisfied with it until the Carver amp shit the nest. I'm not an audiophile, but I want a preamp to handle my 10" and 7" rtr as well as a Yamaha double cassette deck. I have a restored Dual turntable, multiple restored Advent speakers and both Berwen tape and pop and click filters. My CD player is a Kenwood, but suspect.

Any thoughts from the audiophiles out there? I also have a couple of McIntosh high-end speakers without the crossover that are in need of restoration.
Every time you think you've become too cynical, the world finds a way to teach you that the real problem is that you haven't become cynical enough

Free speech is free speech is free speech. There is no qualifier.

If you aren't outraged, you aren't paying attention.

Never attribute malice to that what can be explained as stupidity.

Unborn lives matter too.
