Are you only interested in those two? I have a McIntosh hybrid integrated that I really like gives the smoothness or some say bit of distortion of tubes and the power of SS. I know Vincent also makes a hybrid. I went with the McIntosh as there is a dealer a couple of hours away in case I ever need service.
I recently purchased a used Vincent SV 237 integrated. The amp section is 150 W / 250 W for 4/8 ohms, with the first 10 watts in Class A and the preamp section is tubed. I bought it to replace an Audio Research VSi55 tubed integrated, which I loved. They sound more alike than different, but the Vincent runs a lot cooler since there are no tubes in the power section. I really like it so far. I have it paired up with my Harbeth P3ESRs.
