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

RE: Which SET is next logical "step up" from 300B?

Well, since you've now mentioned the 10'x10' room, I can't see a lower powered amp solving anything. Coming from an experiment where I tried to cram my H3's into a similar 10'x 11' room, I can tell you the Heresy needs a bigger room to breathe and sound its best. If I were to spend money on anything, it would be for a speaker that's designed to work better in that small acoustic. The Heresy is just too energetic a speaker to perform its best in a 100 sq. ft. room. If you're looking for more refinement, I would retain your 300B amp and choose a different speaker.
If that option is off the table, room treatments may be the only other logical approach. They can certainly yield a more refined presentation if properly implemented.
