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

RE: Is an SET Amp or Some Variation complementary with my Speakers?

What is the minimum impedance and roughly how big is your room?

If the impedance does not dip below 4 ohms and the room is not too large a SET amp will probably be fine.

BUT - it also depends on the SET amp - you can buy 5 watts to 50 watt SET amps and probably more if you have deep pockets.

Still - while I love SET amps and feel they are the best sounding design - you really should not try to force a square peg down a round hole. So I would try your best to audition a complete SET based system - if it really impressed then it's time to go down that route and get new speakers that are designed for SET amps. It's kind of that tough love - do it right or don't bother advice no one likes to hear. But it will be better for your ears in the long run.
