Best “modern vintage” amps and preamps

You've spent time with. Mid-eighties to 2000. Tube or SS. Try to restrict it to the standout performers. For instance, I have an Aragon 8008 that is an amazing amp, but my Threshold S/300 edges it out in most categories so I'll restrict my offering to that unit. And also try to limit your suggestions to units you've owned or had more than a single listening session with, but if you heard something extraordinary in a single listening session then go ahead and tell about it. Not looking for "best ever" necessarliy, but rather case by case observations with perhaps a comparison to another unit as a qualifier, as I did with the Aragon.
