I've been on the same search, new system with a tube/ss combo mix. I recently auditioned the Bel Canto EVo digital amp along with their new Pre1 ss pre-amp. The pair provided stunning detail all across the audio spectrum, but particular down in the bass. And it was so smooth, no ss harshness. Both are in the $2200 range. I heard subtle harmonics within single notes of Sanatana guitar solos I'd never thought could be reproduced. Now, all this said (you did say you liked detail), it was superior with electronic music, but on any acoustical (jazz/classical) a tad dry. A dash of 'romance' prehaps is not always unwarrented. After listening around I finally was tipped off to the First Sound Presence Audio delux pre-amp. A tube pre-amp that evolved out of a passive pre-amp design. Dead quiet, no tube glare to get in the way of the details, but with that breath of life which made vocals and any acoustical music (jazz-classical) come to life. Found my match.
