I think you should try the Pass Lab 250.

Tube amps can sound very nice but they have to be up to the task of driving possibly difficult speakers. I have owned Audio Research VT100 MKII and currently use the Conrad-Johnson Premier 11a tube amp in my system.
As for solid-state amps, I think Classe is outstanding especially considering its reasonable price (compared to some megabuck brands). I owned Classe CA-200 and listened to my friend's CA-400's. They both sound very good to my ears.
Thanks for all your help.
For the tube issue. Since i live with my brother we both share this room which is dedicated for our music. He has his system on one side and i have minds on the other side.
His system is a Sony SCD-1, Sonic Frontier Line 3, Sonic Frontier Power 3, and B&W Nautilus 803s.
After reading the post on the tubes with ProAc. You are right, it sound incredible with the speakers. Better then the B&W 803s. Very smooth and sweet sound. Amazing.
