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

Consider a full range unit like an Alpair

In a smallish room, if you use it for other things than listening to music then you'd save a lot of space with a pair of vertical columns. That's my reality - I work at my desk in my listening room.

I use Mark Audio Alpair 10M speakers - aluminium cone. Very fine and detailed sound, not harsh and enough bass and treble. Very satisfied. My friend Ale uses them too - I'm the Andy he refers to. I don't use a crossover, just the Alpair 10M.

My amp is the same as Ale as well - 01A into 4P1L PSE. I use all DHTs now for 8 years.

The 300b amp you are looking at would be a good start. Certainly go 300b and not EL34 or EL84. DHTs do matter - better detail and timbre. The 6SN7 is a decent compromise. If you have a constructor friend he could tweak some of the parts at some point. Not difficult. The circuit is a classic one.
