Manley Shrimp vs. VTL 2.5/5.5

Looking to go tube pre with ss amp. Narrowed down to these three. I would like to hear from those of you who have had some experience with these pieces. Open to all suggestions on ss amp that would be good synergy with these. Thanks, Jerry
I have just made that jump and am waiting for the Shrimp to be delivered. I will be using it to control an Ayre V3 SS poweramp driving Vandersteen 3A speakers, with both analogue and didgital front ends. I hope you get some responses here to assist you in your decision.
