Audionote Conquerer Tube monoblocks 18w


Has anyone tried these against the competition out there, i.e. Audio Research hybrids or full on 300b derivatives?

I have an Audionote M3 which is superb, but have a Musical Fidelity A370/2 monster power amp, which though good, does not have the valve presence.

Any suggestions welcome.
Parallel SET amps lose much of the magic of a single tube SET.

I'd suggest a quality push/pull interstage coupled 300b or higher powered SET with a 211 or 572-3 tube. The 211 can provide up to 30 watts from one tube in class A2 mode; it operates in A1 most of the time, of course, going into A2 for dynamics.
