Boulder phono stage

I am considering the purchase of a Boulder phono stage to mate with my 2010 pre-amp.
The two choices are either the 1008 or 2008.  Please do not recommend a new 2108 as it is currently outside my price range.  Have any of you auditioned these, if so what are your impressions?

Thank you,
Thank you AMW.  Maybe,  I should audition the 508.  I have located both I mentioned above,  but have yet to commit.   I'm currently listening to an MC Anna on a Talea II, and a Stradiverdi V2 on a 11inch 4 point Kuzma.  

Given the 508 is only 5k it’s a steal. I directly compared the 508 and 1008 and I genuinely couldn’t hear the difference. I definitely could hear the difference on the 508 to 2108 but given the 2108 is over 10x the price, the sound difference was quite small. 
I have a 1008.
 It's superb, truly full range and very satisfying musically.
so i will continue to work my up the lineup, next stop 2008.

Imho Boulder gives you everything;
the harmonic richness and delicacy of valves,
with the bass weight and solidity only solid state can provide.

That being said, i still prefer to use valve pre-amps, but combined with ss power amplification. 
I settled on and purchased a Boulder 2008. I'm satisfied with the results...excellent unit, I highly recommend it.  I'm  still using the Boulder 2010 linestage.
