SET amps
I started with the Primaluna PL2.   Moved to a Decware Mini Torii using the same speakers (Ref 3A de Capos).  Can't play as loud but loud enough and a very sweet sound.  It's a single ended pentode design.

MHDT no volume control

“TAD” Tubes
I'm using the EL84-STR in my Grommes PHI-26, nice rich sound good highs without bloated bass. 
Reference 3a Decapo Anniversary
Bought these after researching sites like this.  Damn what an upgrade.  Scored a used pair of i's in cherry for a great price.  10 years now.  Run with my 4 watt Decware mini torii
