I have a set of Heresys in my second system and they do sound best with a tube amp. But if you want solid state I would recommend the Forte Model 4A or any of the early Pass Labs lower power class A amps (Aleph series). The First Watt stuff also works extremely well with the heresys. You can also look for the DIY clone of the First Watt or early Pass Labs Aleph series stuff if money is a consideration. You can find those amps here on Audiogon quite often. With heresys you must be careful not to get a bright sounding amp, they can rip your head off with the wrong amp? The top end can be harsh. The best wire with the heresys is Kimber cable 8tc the new clear.
