Tube Amp with tone controls for Heresy IV's



Hi, Looking for a tube amp with tone controls (personal preference) that will primarily be used with Heresy IV's.
Looking for something around 3k. Medium sized open concept room. Streaming blues, jazz, female vocals via a Cambridge Audio 851N, vinyl, SACD / CD's. Vincent phono pre-amp. I have only found a Luxman SQ-N100 so far. 
I'd appreciate any suggestions. Thanks

That good to know, and pretty reasonable too.. I just looked at that.. El34s. Not for bass duty, sorry... that would be a no go for me. 6L6, KT88, or 90s, IF I had to do bass duty too..

I run Cary V12R at 100 wpc and EL34. They work perfect for me 60 hz and up. BUT I use them at 300hz and up.. Just a perfect valve for mids and highs...BASS not so much.. 60 hz and up will work though..

Regards
All tube amps have tone controls, they are called tubes. Different brands have their own sound, from bright to dark sounding.

Do you change your tubes out every time on sub-optimal recorded music or restrict listening only to the best recordings?

My former V12R with had gobbs of bass, way more than I needed, even comparing to my Cary SA-200-2. solid state amp; 92.5 db speakers. It’s all speaker dependent too. I loved the sound of my EL34s in the V12R.


Keep in mind, the OP has Hersey IVs, a big passive radiator on the back, super-sensitive at 99DB efficiency. Friends of mine run IVs with 10watt Triode amps, 6L6, KT77, KT88s, plenty of bass in the right room setting.

Holger’s EL34 40W/ch (Erhart-Audio) Basie amp is plenty for Hersey IVs. However I agree KT88s and higher do offer more bass drive in the right amp.
