Better have deep pockets when its tube replacement time. 
Integrated amp comparison/recommendation
And if you're looking at a Tori you may want to consider a Coincident Technology Dynamo 34SE MKIII.In a direct comparison I found the Dynamo to have more gravitas and meaningful bass.Quietest tube amp I have ever owned.Drop dead gorgeous and well ... 
best preamp under 500 for cheap, poor student
You do realize that you are responding to a post that's 19 years old. 
My Mark Levinson preamp dying - looking for new preamp, sound as good, wont break bank
What's a little warm up time out of your day and you can definitely improve your musical sound stage with a tube pre amp.You will also have the added bonus of fleshing out the sound of your Bryston which tends to be too linear.Just sayin.

CEC TL3 3.0 (Japan) vs TL2N (US)
I don't know if these are identical units but what I can tell you is that the CEC 3.3 is easily converted to US 120V.10 minute job by any qualified tech.I know because I had my 3.3 converted.You can simply pm me if you need additional information. 
Old Legendary tubes vs New Kids on the block Amperex/Siemens/Tele vs Psvane/TAD/Shugaung
Supratek Cortese,with a pre amp of that caliber only the very best vintage will do.I mean tubes not wine. 
Best integrated tube amplifier, under $3,000.00. No phono needed. Could be used, too.d
Coincident Technology Dynamo 34SE MKIII.I've had the two previous models and the current production MKIII is special.With an NOS tube complement it is one of the most competent Integrated amps available. 
Suggestions for low powered tube amps for Zu Omens
Coincident Dynamo 34 SE,8 wpc,high current very comfortable driving lower efficiency speakers.Average re sale on an MKII about $1,000 or less.Stellar reviews. 
Coincident Technology Dynamo 34SE MKIII
Actually the Genalex Golden Lion KT 77's were the preference of several audio reviewers.I have yet to acquire an EL 34 that surpasses the performance.I acquired the Tungsols from a private source.Personally I would upgrade the power tubes first fo... 
Coincident Technology Dynamo 34SE MKIII
Have seen your comments in another thread  where you referenced the Tung Sols.Gonna get some,price is right. 
Coincident Technology Dynamo 34SE MKIII
Yes I was considering the 300B version but opted for the EL34.I sold my MKII with the stock tubes keeping my vintage tube complement.Tube rectifier is a 1945 RCA 5AR4GY with hanging filament,power tubes are Genalex KT77's,and signal tubes are Tung... 
used Integrated tube amp under $1500 for Klipsch Cornwall III's?
Coincident Technology Dynamo 34SE MKII.Would be a seamless match and well within your price range.Read the reviews. 
Audience 2V+
These are very special.Superb fit and finish if you appreciate a high gloss look.Paired with a Dynamo 34SE MKII / APL DSD DAC / CEC Transport.At 8 wpc the Dynamo matched nicely and provided the necessary grunt on difficult musical passages.Female ... 
Preamplifier Recommendation for Innersound Eros Speakers
I had the Innersound passive stats for years,powered by Bryston with an Audio Research LS15 tube pre.My opinion,a tube pre simply fleshes out the music.Heat generation and maintenance not an issue.
