The other components in my 2nd system are: Blue Circle DAC, Cambridge Transport, JM Reynaud Offrande Supremes V2, Silnote Audio ICs and DC, PCs. Ayon Spirit 2 integrated presently drives these. I am not looking to make this a complicated thread, just suggestions for a SS power amp for Herron. Txs

When I had the Offrandes in my main system I drove them first with the Ayon Spirit and then with Modwright LS100 & KWA 100SE separates. I felt that they benefited from the power of the KWA and I got the benefit I wanted from tubes via the LS100 pre. I bought the Herron on AGon as a backup and it has been sitting in a box so I have been thinking of going the separates route in my second system as well with a mix of tube pre and ss power. (Side note; in my main system with Daedalus Argos V2s I switch every couple of weeks between the Modwright separates and a Line Magnetic 518ia 845 based tube integrated with all NOS tunes aside from the 845s). Budget wise I am open but say $4K or less, can do more but given the lower amount of time that I listen to the second system want to keep it reasonable.

well there are a ton of nice used SS amps listed in and below your price range if you want a Class A amp this Accuphase A20V looks like a great deal.
No affiliation with the seller just think Accuphase makes great sounding gear and would be good match. Good luck and happy listening!
