Single Ended Triodes (SETs), the ultimate tube lovers dream.

RE: recommendations for an SET integrated amp

I've had mine for 14 years and I can sell it for more than I paid for it new. I've only needed to replace one preamp tube in that time.

But it's not a true SET - it is Single Ended Parallel which is as close as it gets. It takes out plenty of SET amps - I much preferred it to a Cary 300B back in the day and I actually like it more than the Meishu.

The EL84 outputs are also some of the least expensive and the longest lasting tubes available making it really cheap to operate.

Another nice thing is that no AN amp needs to be biased. Making it dead simple for tube newbies.

With regards to SET amps - I don't know the technical reason why but I always greatly prefer Parallel Single Ended tube amps. 300B or 2a3 in parallel sounds bigger and more powerful and more controlled. But more expensive.
