I run the Sugden A21SE and it will not thicken the sound. Of oourse I cannot speak about your DIY tube amps. One would presume the Sugden would be much quicker with extended high end. But then I also run Manley tube amps and they are very quick indeed.
I will say the Sugden is very speaker cable sensitive and does not like silver much. Bright. The Sugden is not a warm sound. Very open and the bottom end is not warm or thunderous, just very fast and accurate. Hope this helps.
As much as I like and respect Noel from Skylan, I never thought his stands worked well with Harbeth for me. My dealer demonstrated the SHL5s with the old EPOS ST12 open-frame stands and to my ear, they yielded a much clearer sound. When I got the speakers home, I ordered the Skylans because they were the ones you were "supposed" to get with Harbeths, but I ended up changing to the Epos. Before you jump ship, you might consider placing a hard interface between the speakers and the Skylans. I found that casino chips worked well or you could use metal cones with the points facing up if you don't mind putting pinpricks in the speaker. Have fun.
