Looking for a new Amp or Preamp? If you're after tubes, post over here.

What you heard was a SET amp

The sound is night and day different from SS or PP tube amps. Your speakers, as you say, are pretty insensitive, but easy to drive. If they sounded good with the 845 amp (Class A), you won't get very close to that sound with SS. About the closest you could come to the 845 sound with a tube amp (25W+) is a PP-triode amp (triode-wired power pentode), but probably class A/B instead of all Class, as Class A PP triodes are usually down around 10-12W.

Why not get an 845 amp?
