I guess, Charlie, it is packaging and perception for some people.

Wish I had the income to afford a single channel 12AX7 preamp at those

To all those who have responded here or direct, thank you for the ideas.  If 
you have ever done research on mic preamps for a project like this, 
apparently the audiophile crowd that pays 60 bucks for a 12AX7 are just as 
nutty over mic preamps.  While a simple solid state preamp kit can be had 
for $10 or less, you can fork over $2K bucks for a studio grade single 
channel mic preamp if you are so inclined, some still being made with 
12AX7's.  Must have really good specs.
