Pure Class A SS vs Tube Amp
"...first 6 watts is pure class A sounds really good I’m just wondering what I’m missing i guess I need more class A..."With speakers @ 102dB efficiency, of course depending on your room size, I suspect most if not all of your listening is within ... 
Pure Class A SS vs Tube Amp
"...I’m trying to decide pure class A or Tube amp..."There are lots of tube amps that run in class A. Look for single ended triode or pentode (or beam power) design tube amps. No experience with your speakers but Line Magnetic models with 300B or ... 
PROAC D48R Bass Booming
