You rang?I spent some time with their 6SN7 preamp. I thought it was pretty dandy, actually.
No experience with their power amps.
There are currently several opportunities to purchase clones (true clones) and updated variants of the venerable Dynaco power amps of yore. They're worthy of consideration. There's also a cottage industry of improvements to the original designs' rougher edges. Not sure I have a specific recommendation.
The problem is that I like to ask the loudspeakers to do most of the work, not the amplifiers. That approach has been unfashionable since at least the late 1950s.
Perhaps it's worth invoking the name of @SIY in the context of a request for recommendations.
I am not sure that he can be summoned like Beetlejuice -- but it's worth a go!
Unfortunately, I’m unfamiliar with these units. This stuff comes and goes… if it is starved plate, you’ll get a very blurry and sometimes harsh sound, which indicates how much distortion they generate.
Coloration by software is a lot easier.
