OLC question mark

The thread starts: I need to free up some cash to purchase a tube preamplifier. I have Sony TA-N80es/TA-E77esd or Nakamichi PA-5/CA-5 combinations. I have only one TA-N80es but I have 2 PA-5's. The 2 Nak's allow me to bi-amp my Vandersteen model 3's. I can (kind of) bi-amp with the TA-N80es using speaker A and speaker B connections. The Nakamichis are under rated at 100 watts per channel and the Sony is over rated at 200 watts per channel. I am still involved in switching them around to decide. Other parts to this puzzle: Which ever I keep will be my second system. I am seeking a quality tube preamp to use with my Eico hf-87 and ADS 1230's. I have my eye on an Audio Research SP8. Given all this which would you let go of and which would you keep? Any assistance is greatly appreciated!
