I evaluated over 20 power amps before finding what, to me, was the only amp that did it all. The Melos MAT 180. 180 watts/ch. of pure triode power. No solid state amp could get the harmonic structure of music right. None of the tube amps with less power can adequately control the drivers. If I had the money i'd have bought the Melos 400 watt/ch. monoblocs, but the 180 seems to do everything so it might have been overkill at 400 watts. The only other possibility I found is one of the big VTL's, They're good too.
