Not quite what you're asking about, but Art Dudley wrote an interesting review in September's Stereophile mag about the Luxman MQ-88uSE tube amp. His speakers were DeVore O/93's. He liked it a lot.

I recently purchased the LX-380 and love it! All of my 2 channel listening had been through my Anthem MRX-1120 prior to taking ownership of the Luxman. Initially, I was leaning towards a Luxman SS integrated but my dealer recommended the tube based system in the LX-380. I can’t say I auditioned either the SS or tubed options so I trusted my guy and have been so impressed with the sound. It is so smooth with lots of energy. Clarity is amazing, excellent detail and awesome low end. I would highly recommend this unit!!
I am running Paradigm Prestige 95F. Extremely efficient so a great combo and the sound quality mates extremely well. I can listen for hours in bliss. My vinyl has never sounded better. I recently added a Bluesound Node 2i to the mix for digital steaming and very pleasing. Even driving my 95F’s in bypass mode is better than the Anthem. Very pleased overall!!
