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.

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.  
@tomic601 thanks. I will look into that

@jackd I’m on there but since Klaus is also in there I choose not to post
Not sure I understand not posing the question there but that's up to you.  As far as I can see from looking at the used units available in the various markets the safest bet would be the MZ2. With NOS output tubes, remote and the stock power supply you would be a few dollars over $1500 with new warranty.  You can add their upgraded power supply or another brand later if you want.  
I’ll be running a DAC (think Topping D30/SMSL Sanskrit/Schiit Modi Uber) and a phonostage (outputs .25mv) so would it be a dumb question to ask if a passive would work given Odyssey’s low impedance?

No not dumb, it’s said Odyssey’s are hi gain (low input sensitivity) this means they are the ideal candidate for a preamp with no gain, like a passive.
But! the problem is they are only 25kohm input impedance which is not great for a passive preamp, you need at least 33kohm or higher for a 10kohm passive to be impedance happy.

So what you need is a passive preamp with an active "unity gain" buffer, the closest I can think of commercially with trial period is the Schiit Freya preamp. at $699. designed and made by Mike Moffat of Theta fame.

It’s 3 preamps in one with a very good 128-step relay volume control, remote control, xlr and rca inputs and outputs,
Mode 1 passive with no gain
Mode 2 Active discrete fet buffer, gain of 1 ( your most likely one)
Mode 3 Active tube with gain of 5
And you can return it if no satisfied.

"Mode 2" could very well be a copy of the Nelson Pass B1 buffer, as it’s also just a couple of fets and simple like this, but it "looks" as if Mike Moffat has gone a step better and dc coupled it, which is better, as I can see what looks to be dc servos around those fets with no coupling caps.
