    Tube Preamp vs Amp

    Currently I'm using a tube preamp into an 887 so I can control it with the input button instead of plugging and unplugging my headphones. All things being equal, would there be any benefit to running a separate amp over a preamp? I guess I'd be comparing something like getting a Bottlehead...

    Tube rolling 'Darkvoice' La Figaro 336 classic.
