Audio Valve Challenger 180 Users

I just bought a pair of these amps and would like to hear
your experiences with them;especially if you played with the mixing of tubes from the EL34,6550,kt88's,kt90's and what type of speakers were you driving with them.
I have a pair of soundlab m2's with impedance mods;listen to vocals,jazz,acoustic,classical and sometimes Pink Floyd will even visit.
Any feedback and experiences are greatly appreciated.
Regards and Happy Listening in advance.

Still love mine. Using cryo'ed KT88 with NOS RCA clear tops and a NOS Sylvania black plate 5751. I also recommend using Pearl tube coolers and with the top cover removed (helps keep it cooler; something every tube amp can use). I have also used EL34s but prefer the extra punch that comes with the KT88s.
