Hey Guys! After talking with many of you about gear I narrowed my preamp decision to a great river pre that sells for $1075 but...today I stopped by a local dealer and the manager wants to blow out his Avalon M5's for $720 because he doen't want to carry them anymore. I wanted to get a great river because many of you are thrilled with them and said that they are an awesome all around pre. It would be my first big pre. I haven't considered the Avalon at all before now. Is this something I should jump at and go purchase right away or should I hold out for the GR? Please give me some quick advice. Thanks.
