Hi! New here and it's great to read about everyone's experience with the MLs. I have virtually a new-to-me, but MINT pair of SL3s. I would like to hear from folks whether a tube preamp makes a lot of difference in the music? I have a Musical Fidelity A308 integrated amp. I think I am looking for a tube pre with a Phono stage capable of both MM and MC cartridges. Thanks everyone! I'll post a photo of my system soon.
