Chuck, I've had the EA II's for about a 1.5 years now and love them. I've used Jeff Rowland's Concentra II integrated and the Jeff Rowland Model 112 solid state amps and thought each was a great match. About 1.5 months ago, I switched to the Cary SLI-80 tubed integrated amp and absolutely love the combo--as good as the JRDG solid state amps were, I now understand why many EA II fans say you have to use tubes! the Cary, with 40 wpc (triode) drives the EA II's fine (I also have a REL Strata III for the bass assistance). Good luck!
