PS Audio or Ayre?
I own both and have the K5xeMP and the BHK. The Ayre is an amazing value and at the prices you will find it used and even new unless Ayre has run out of stock. It has 2 balanced and 2 unbalanced inputs and no headphone amp. That being said, there ... 
Tube amp Low end Bass question
There are some relatively high powered SETs but the more power the pricier they get.  What is your budget (the MC275 is $5750)?  Do you have room above that?  Stereo or mono-blocks?  I sell SET and Push-Pull units for Art Audio but my stuff is a b... 
Tube amp Low end Bass question
You could consider trying a SET from one of the retailers who offer it with a generous return policy. If it is inadequate, return it. Usually you are risking $75 in shipping charges. I doubt a 300B SET will deliver enough power but an 845, 211, or...

Tube pre for class d recommendations
I have a Rogue Hydra which is a hybrid Class D and have had it paired with three preamps for extended periods of time and was very happy with all three.  Ayre K-5xeMP, PS Audio BHK and Art Audio Composer.  The latter two are tube units.  I also tr... 
anyone know anything about primaluna gear......
I would expect Upscale Audio to steer you toward PrimaLuna. The owner of Upscale Audio is one of the owners of PrimaLuna. That being said, PrimaLuna gear is excellent for the money. They are a very strong value and they should steer you toward it....
