If you think the 6 packs were hot, try a V12R! I hated to let mine go, but I traded it on a new Cary 120S amp, and it only puts out about 1/5 the heat. It gets warm, but not hot. I have 96 hours break in time on it and it sounds fantastic! I hope you can afford to stay with tubes. If not good luck with SS. Maybe a used McIntosh 7270. I had one for 18 years and it worked fine with a Cary SLP98P preamp. Not sure about BAT. Good luck.
