Wilson Alexia 2
I prefer Diamond Black over the other colors that use the extra metal flakes. Probably because Diamond Black matches my WA Center, and Surround speakers.

Blue Hawaii tube amp
http://www.tubeaudiostore.com/elpremgrad.html - " The Siemens EL34 is one of the best EL34s made. These tubes are rare, new old stock tubes made with East German precision at the original East German factory, so basically Telefunken". These are bl... 
Blue Hawaii tube amp
If you want to ruin your amp, go ahead and use the KT77 tubes - NOT RECOMMENDED (you can verify this in the BHSE forum on HeadFi).I’ve probably rolled 15 different types of EL34/6CA7 tubes in the BHSE, and found the vintage tubes to be very good -... 
Time for the Dynaco to go, Affordable Integrated or Separates for Wilson's Under $2.5K?
@johnwahlHi Everyone can it be done?Sorry, the answer is no. Not within your budget, and even with a bigger budget, the combination of your listening environment (Condo) and Watt 3/Puppy 2 speakers do not complement each other.My advice is to sell... 
Daisy chain another subwoofer
Are you sure this is what you're hoping for (stereo mode)?Watch this video for an explanation of stereo vs dual mono setup. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=29ziwKUHS4I Both methods work, but you might have a preference for dual mono setup. I sus...

And that's why I only want to run a single sub, it should be plenty. I really don't even need a sub for 2 channel, but I know it will enhance the experience somewhat. I do however require a sub for home theatre. I just wish someone with Pass Labs ...

Yep, they have the "Subwoofer Finder" tool, and suggest what sub(s) to use, but don't mention anything in that tool about using monoblocks, they only ask what type of speakers. Lots of helpful information on that site, and it would be worthwhile r...
