Yes. Look at Merrill Audio and how they ship with a very specific power cord. 
Solid State to replace Audio Research REF110?
Look at Herron amps and pre amps. I have had my M1 amps for close to 6 years and have never found a other amp to replace them. Always on. Always just right. And I have had 3-4 other amps just to compare but keep the Herrons. 
Hypex Ncore 1200
I have not heard the any of the Ncore modules but have heard Merrill and was surpised. I spend a lot of time in Scandivian for work and heard the Apoll Acoustic amps at the Helsinki HiFi show last month. My experience was very much similar to Petl...

RFI Interference
I lived through RFI hell for months. The first problem was a cheap wall wart for the HRT iDevice. Then I removed the iPod from the system. The final solution was using Ferrite beads on all ICs and speaker wires. It is an interesting dilemma. All s... 
Penaudio Cenya monitors
The speakers are just shipping to the US. They are very natural and detailed offering big and controlled bass. They sound equally good with tubes as well as solid state.
