Stromberg-Carlson ASR433, Magnavox SE console amps. It's usually easy to purchase a pair of mono integrated amps if you buy them separately. Heath made some nice ones with 6L6s.

On the Bay there are a lot of different vintage amps you can acquire for this purpose. Many of them are amp "pulls" form old tube console's like Magnavox, Fisher, Eico, Sears, Silvertone, Stromburgh Carelson, Sherwood...
Search "vintage tube amp" on EBay and you will find a plethora of such equipment.
If you can find Dynaco tube gear and repair and improve cosmetics at a reasonable price there are always buyers for this brand. Look at Ebay for same, prices vary according to condition.
A more obscure option is older FM tuners. There are still fans for the top rated models.
When I say top rated, visit FM Tuner Info which is run by one of my audio group members. Typically Kenwood and Sansui models move pretty well, some fetch as much as a thousand dollars.
In another post I mention wanting to rip my LP's to digital because some were never offered on CD.
I have a Kenwood C1 preamp that I'm thinking of doing some upgrade mods to. I love the sound of tube gear for guitar work and am wondering if something like a Dynaco PAS tube preamp would sound better than the upgraded Kenwood C1 if I modded the PAS' phono section?
Anyone have any experience with this?
