IMO Manly Mahi mono amps sound great and would be a great match for the ushers

I'm sure Usher has a very good reason to not recommend using a tube amp, possibly large dips in the impedance from the nominal rating, severe phase angle, or both. If you want to try a tube amp, you should at least use a tube friendly speaker to get the best results.
Have you thought about trying different tubes in the preamp?
Sorry for a late reply to my post. Been on family vacation with minimal cell service. I haven't tried tube rolling in the BAT since I want to get away from my three channel Acurus amp and go dedicated two channel. Figured once I upgraded my amp, I would experiment further. I've read some decent reviews on the Usher 1.5 reference SS amp and am considering that as a possibility. My usher speakers were my first recent used purchase into the world of dedicated two channel so not looking to change those out at this time. Thank you for the inputs.
I am in a market for a good tube amp as well, currently I have Usher 6381 and used to drive it odyssey, as I want to take my time to get good tube amp, for the time being I ordered musical paradise 301 mk3 with extra tubes total cost around $450 including shipping, and I am really surprised withy the way it drives usher 6381, I am happy with this small amp with el34 tubes, and it will give me some time to look at the other options.
I have a pair of usher 6311's and at the bottom of the speakers is a place where there are 6 screws and I took that off and found an empty cavity is this a place to put lead shots or something to dampen the speaker does anyone know? There is nothing in the bottom just empty space so is this area designed to put lead shot into ..Thank you could anyone tell me is this what the purpose
