Integrated Tube Amp Demo


I am beginning the process of an in-home trial of integrated tube amplifiers. Currently plan to compare the Cary SLI-80HS, Raven Blackhawk MK3, PrimaLuna EVO 300, and Rogers EFI-100 MK2. Wondering if anyone has any recommendations of additional comparable integrated tube amps that would reasonably fit into this group?

Any candidates MUST have a supplier that will allow return of the amp after an in-home tryout. For example, I would like to try the Jadis Orchestra Black but cannot find any supplier that allows for return after an in-home trial. 

Not sure it's relevant in this case, but system is Melco N1A Server - Benchmark DAC (digital), VPI Classic 3 - Herron VTPH-1 MC Plus (analog), Bowers&Wilkens 805 D3 Speakers - REL Subwoofer.

Thanks in advance for all of your input.

+2 LTA UL Integrated & no transformer nonsense. 
LTA tubes last between 5000 to 10000 hours. 
+1 @fuzztone you need to build relationships with dealers

I was looking for a tube integrated for my office; my dealer carries Jadis and Triode Corp (Japan) among others. I borrowed his demos (Orchestra Black/TRV88) I preferred the Triode by a fairly large margin and bought the demo unit at a significant discount

not sure if you have a Triode Corp dealer in your area but if you do, add one of their INT’s to your list. It’s gorgeous, great build quality, point to point wiring, etc and sounds fantastic

Best,

Where are you?  It might be possible to hear some of these at someone's house.
While I certainly understand wanting to go with a tube integrated, not sure that’s the way I’d go with your speakers.  At 88dB dipping down near 4 Ohms with extreme phase angles, the 805s don’t scream tubes to me.  And at the very least you’ll probably be pushing most tube amps pretty hard, which is less than optimal. 

I’d be more inclined to try a hybrid integrated like a Unison Research Unico Due, which has a tubed input stage but SS amp biased toward Class A.  This design puts out plenty of power and is stable down to 2 Ohms so will have no trouble driving your speakers yet still have a good bit of that tube magic.  And, importantly, Fidelis (distributor) offers in-home trials so you can try in your own system.  Anyway, that’s my take, and best of luck in your search.
