which preamp for my cary slam-100 mono's?

Newbie building his first serious system. Any suggestions of which preamp would be a good match with my Cary SLAM-100's? I listen mainly to rock and jazz. Thanks, Allen
You used the word "match." So then, why not first consider a Cary preamp? I am a big proponent of giving first choice to the same manufacturer of the amp, simply because the manufacturer has a build philosophy and will likely have the closest compatibility match in terms of input/output impedance, sonic signature and so on.
I have a CAT SL-1 mk3 w/phono with the slams and have been completely happy with the combination for years (+ the CAT has never had a single issue in over 10 years of heavy use)
