Boston Acoustics A400's and Tube Gear???
I have recently purchased a pair of Boston Acoustic-s A400's. They are a very neutral sounding speaker rated 91dB efficiency at 4 ohms. My listening room is 15x15x8 with an opening to a room of similar size.
I use a vintage (late 70's) Luxman integrated (80wpc) to drive the Bostons. Most of my listening is analog using a Dual 1229 with Shure Type V-MR cartridge. My musical tastes are classical, opera, musicals, pop singers (Sinatra, etc.), some jazz and folk, rock on occasion.
Has anyone used tube or hybrid amplification with Boston A400 speakers? I am afraid tube gear would make my base nuetral system sound base deficient. Most modern tube gear does not have tone controls so that leaves equalization out. However, everything I have read about tubes suggests they present a more satisfying sonic picture with "my" type of music. Any real world advice would be appreciated.
