Hope you don't mind a suggestion that is outside your list. I think the McCormacks are a perfect match with Vandersteens and a near perfect match with c-j. The high input impedance of the McCormack presents a kind load to tubes, though, the high sensitivity of some models might(?) reduce the usable volume control on the usually high out puts of tube pre's. Of course c-j and McCormack are sister companies. IMO the McCormack's some what forward presentation mates perfectly with the Vandersteens some what laid back presentation. Perhaps two of the best values in audio having a symbiotic relationships offers audiophiles unusually high value and quality. Highly recommended!
