What are the good features of the mv 125 that you want to capture? Not sure what you mean by "treble response".

I would look first at CJ SS amps, as they are products of the same design team. I use a CJ 350 myself and it is a great amp, although not cheap. But as noted above , tubes and SS have their own sound. If it is to be a back up why not try a different flavor, I am a SS user but occasionally use a tube hybrid pre amp, it gives a different, but equally valid, take on the music.
hi sounds real audio:
the cj mv 125 has what might be described as some veiling in frequencies exceding 3000hz, some attenuation in the treble region and a very smooth presentation, again, in the treble.
while i would not expect to replicate the response of the mv 125 i would try to get as close as possible. it may not be possible , and as has been suggested , i might not like the sound of any solid state amp in comparison to the cj.
it has been sugggested that the closest i can get is a sonographe.
i have no idea how close that will be.
thanks for all of the responses so far.
