Primaluna - Well built, not expensive, and idiot proof. Check it out. Oh, BTW, it sounds pretty good too. It errs on the warm side of neutral. Not a bad thing, IMHO.

You are correct, the manual warns against treating the tube pins. I purchased the Prima Luna Prologue Two about 4 months ago and I have not been happier with any audio puchase in 35 years of spending 1/2 of my paycheck on audio stuff (I even wrote a review of the Prima Luna here). I am now considering replacing the Musical Fidelity A300 power amp with a Prima Luna Prologue Five ... the Prima Lunas are that good. If I were to sum up my comments, buy the Prima Luna, plug it in, and be amazed as to how good an amp it is. There is nothing else that you need to do. Yes ... I am an obvious, unabashed Prima Luna fan.
I have used the Jolida 302b with the 5.0's with excellent results and I can highly recommend that combo. I am currently using the 5.0's with a Cary SLI-80 with even better results, but at much greater expense. I'm sure the Prima Luna would be an excellent choice, as well, and it would be more user friendly since it is auto biasing.
