Tube Amps With Good Bass Qualities
Thank you all for your input, George, Ralph, and everyone else. I've always enjoyed the sound of tube amps, but have found the bass a little "lacking, tubby, soft". But for this shortcoming, tube amps have a sound that I really enjoy. All of these... 
Tube Amps With Good Bass Qualities
Thank you for the responses. I just went over to the Rogue website and there are a few reviews on that amp. I will have to check them out.  I was not familiar with the Rogue brand. The Atma Sphere S-30 is also something I am not familiar with. At ... 
Thoughts on the "New" Dynaco ST70x ?
I just noticed their website last night. Looks interesting. I always liked the sound of the original.  Seems like they have "updated" it for better reliability. 
Picking a Tube integrated amp
You might look at Quicksilver Audio's integrated amp. If 20 watts per channel is enough. Their amps sound really nice. They have been around for more than 30 years, and are made in the U.S. And the price is very reasonable

Line Magnetic 755 vs AN/KSPe vs DeVore O/96
The DeVore O96 might overpower your room. The O/93 might be a better fit. 
Audiophile Active Speakers?
Have you checked these out? www.pteacoustics.com Good reviews. 
Devore Gibbon 88 v. PMC Twenty-23
It sounds like he's close to you. Maybe he would let you audition them in your home for a few days. That would be the best way to see if you like them. 
Best 845 amp?
Have you checked out the Coincident Turbo 845SE? 
Octave vs Ayon integrateds
I was just looking at a review of the Ayon Triton amp on Stereomojo. The reviewer asked the owner of Ayon where his products were made. The owner of Ayon stated that his product is designed and built in Austria, not China. Has something changed? 
Anyone using Tyler Acoustics Pro Dynamics speakers
I haven't heard them, but there was a thread about them that Duke of Audiokinesis responded to. He said the configuration would work well. I talked with Duke a few months back, and at some point in the near future I'm going to purchase his Jazz Mo... 
Do you indulge when listening to your rig?

Thanks for the link. I had a nice talk with Duke this morning about various options for now, and in the future. I'm pretty much set on the Jazz 2.0 model. I can get the Jazz now, and depending on happens later, can add the "Effects speaker" if spa...

Thanks again for your responses. I checked out the Audiokinesis website, and the speakers looked very interesting. The room I have now is decent size, but in the future I don't know where I may be living. The room size may be large or small. I lik...

Holley, What do you think of the Zu Omen Def's in a smaller room than I have now. Would they work?
