Wow...no ideas whatsoever? Does this mean this cannot be done?

I am also a bit surprised that you have not gotten any feedback. After reading your post, I am not quite sure what you are hoping to do. Although I am far from the ultimate expert, you should be able to use the preamp outputs for use with a 2 channel tube amp. Always a factor is to match the output levels when using 2 amps. Also a factor is the fact that the amps may sound too different to match well. Many use a SS amp for the sub and tubes for the uppers. This is an approach that works well for many but, I gather that you are trying to do something else. I currently own a Decware tube amp and am very pleased. Efficeincy over 92db is required with them as a general guideline. If you have the option, try to borrow a tube amp first to see if it is to your liking.
good luck, Paul
I have an Outlaw 1050 processor and have been using an older Carver to drive the mains, JM Lab Cobalt 816's, for some time. You can indeed run a seperate two channel amp using your pre amp outs on your processor. I am replacing the Carver with a Jolida JD 202A with a Parts Connexion mod. I got the amp from Walter at Underwoodhifi.com, simply a great guy to do business with and highly regarded here on AudiogoN. Sounds like the amp is in your budget too, $1040.00. Check it out, it's a great little tube amp. Here's a link to an online review of this amp.
