the best 'tubey amp - warm,smooth,liquid' ?

i'm using the word 'tube' as the meaning of warm,smooth and liquid sound.
but i could't compare to some tube amps like mcintosh(mc275), cary(cad 805), arc(vs115) and conrad-johnson(premier) at one place and the same time.
some say mcintosh lean, cary weak and not bloom, arc not tubey and cj no clarity.
i need your experiences and advices.
actually i have a difficulty to match speaker systems with.
Congrats zen, two mental defectives are better than one.

Neither of you will be advancing to the lightning round.
Audiofall..lightning round?..boy, do you have child issues. I gave up baby competitions at the age of four and had no further use for my sandbox. If you want to let go of your childhood skeletons and get rid of your sandbox, I would recommend putting it up for sale on Ebay, or better yet, install four outdoor cube speakers on the four posts and list it on Audiogon.
CJ no clarity...can we start over? No wonder this thread has run off the rails.
