I love the sound of the Legend Audio Design amps. They also have an integrated for around $3000. You can buy from them, but they also have dealers around the country. Good Luck

The Atma-Sphere OTL tube amplifiers are well worth considering. In many ways, these tube amplifiers combine the best that solid state has to offer with none of the downside. They are very neutral, exceptionally quick, detailed and transparent, while maintaining the magical reproduction of correct timbre and harmonic richness that I have found only in good tube amplifiers. The MA-2 model will drive just about any speaker. Other models benefit from being mated with speakers that don't have extreme variations in their impedance curves and with higher nominal impendances.

jim: airtight is indeed a bullet-proof, beautifully made and finished product that is characterized by great sound i've been honored to sup and party several times with airtight's owner and designer, mr. mura. he is a dedicated audiophile and gentleman of the first rank, which shows thru in his tubed electronics. I'm not sure which airtight you're considering, so i don't know your pricepoint aversion. if you have the means, however, i suggest you also consider the nagra vpa monoblocks; these are another great-sounding tube amplification source that are swiss made, and look it. -kelly
