The Audio Note Soro SE is another good choice in the AN lineup. A slightly different sonic flavor that's a bit more robust sounding than the Oto SE. A little more power at 17 wpc. for the Soro SE vs. 10 wpc. for the Oto SE. Like the Oto SE the Soro SE uses paralled power tubes, in this case 6L6/5881 and 6SL7 driver tubes. A comparison audition is always helpful to see which works best in driving your speakers and personal sonic preference.
Personally I used an Audio Note M1 pre-amp and a P2 SE amplifier for about 17 years. This is the separates combination that is the same as the Soro SE integrated. Absolutely no operational issues during my time of ownership. They worked very well with a variety of speakers including the Audio Note AN/J, Spendor S3/5 and Tonian Labs TL-D1. In a fit of madness during a time of financial need I sold them both which I regret to this day.
Dennis Had is building single ended amps in this 'retirement' and selling them on the auction site. The Inspire PSE is a parallel single ended design about 20 watts with KT88's. Inspire is what he named the amps,
It can use 6V6's-Kt-150's depending on the rectifier.
I have different Inspire amp with a LP27a per that uses 27 tubes and love it. It's a SEP triode strapped.
The Soro PP is no slouch either at its price-point.
