They go down to 2.8 ohms around 300 hz and are a more difficult load than my Apogee Duetta Sigs. My Meridian 605s never had any trouble with them but the L5s cause them to overheat and shut down. I am using a CJ 350 on my pair of L5s, SS but my tube using friends really like the sound of the combination. Very uncolored with great bass; probabaly more laid back in the midrange than many tubes but the L5s don't really need extra output in this area. Try a good SS amp on them if you can borrow one and see what you think; I don't really think that tubes are going to give you what you are looking for.
