Check out the Golden Tube SE-40 Special Edition. The standard SE-40 is $1100, the Special Edition (better transformers) is $1400 list. I had the standard as a loaner for a couple of months and just got the special in a couple of days ago. They're 40W/channel, single-ended. They both sound great with my Emotive Audio Erato preamp and Magnepan 1.6 speakers (83 dB/1 watt). The special sounds snappier with better dynamics. My test for dynamics is Beethoven symphonies and the special edition comes through with flying colors. At the other extreme, Holly Cole's Temptations puts forth low level detail and timbral subtlety that is stunning.
