Thanks for the information.
I am leaning towards either a used Jolida 707A available at a local shop or a new Yaqin MC-30L that is advertised on audiogon. The local shop had the Yaqin in the store the other day and it sounded excellent and was significantly more impressive compared to the Naim UnitiLite that was available for a solid state comparison. Admittedly, the comparison of the Yaqin to the Naim is completely apples and oranges, but I think is fair to assume that the Naim includes a quality amplifier. The Jolida 707A would be a little bit more expensive, but I like the idea of supporting the local shop as he doesn't sell the Yaqin, though he recommends them and has offered to order it for since he has a working relationship with the designer/distributor.
The biggest issues I have with either of them is having a place to set it up. I think I can clear out some space in my cabinet where I can quickly remove the doors for a lot more ventilation when I'm actually using it.
Czarivey - I'm not sure why my Focal speakers wouldn't "benefit" from tube amplification? I'm not necessarily expecting the result to be "better" than what I have with my Integra 50.1 receiver. My goal is something that doesn't sound objectively worse in comparison and has the different tube sound.
