I want to stay with tubes and would prefer to purchase new gear. So is there anything else I should listen to that is in the same price range of the CJ gear, which is $9,500.
The PrimaLuna has plenty of power for my speakers. I don't think I would need more power.
I would definitely include Music Reference in your search.
Music Reference RM200
Just a happy customer for many years.
Cheers and good luck in your search.
