Preamp Suggestions for hot-rodded Odyssey Khartago?

I am basically ruling out the Candela due to wanting to hear it before the end of the world and though for a while I was dead set on it, I kept watching for anything interesting used that would match well. I would like to go tube to get at least some of the tube staging.

Max budget is $2k but would rather stay under $1500.

Musical taste is mostly reggae, punk, 80's and 90's alt, grunge, etc with a smattering of hip hop, jazz, electronic, musique concrete and metal.

For overall sound I'd like something that would augment Odyssey's already fast and dynamic sound with good bass.


Over the years with Odyssey amps I have used Music Reference, Kora, Modwright LS-100, PS Audio BHK, Anthem Pre-2L,Sonic Frontiers Line 2 SE+ and W4S STP-SE.  Never heard the LTA but have a friend who has used it with multiple SS amps and loves it.  My experience with Odyssey amps and the description of the LTA from him and other owner makes me think it would be a good match.  Also unless you are looking used most of the ones I have tried are either not available much anymore or over your stated price goal.  As the Odyssey amps have low input sensitivities in the 1 volt range you need to be careful of tube preamps with high gain especially if your speakers have sensitivity ratings much over the mid-80's range. 
Brother in law has top of line hot rodded as you say Kahtargo and a Candela
very liquid, organic sound

@jackd thanks. I will look into those. Good call on the sensitivity.

@tomic601 I absolutely believe you but the wait times are getting hilarious. Like do I want to wait 3-8 months?
Certainly Klaus is busy and waits can be long - his room at The Show was slammed ( and very dark !!! )

i guess I would look at Atmasphere. ARC SP/LS 15 and above, Quicksilver and VTL....

Also if you haven't already I would pose this question over on AudioCircle where you will find plenty of current and former Odyssey owners with some going back like me almost twenty years.
