Home Amp/Preamp Asylum

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

Now for something completely different.

Lots of very sensible tube suggestions, but I notice you are using solid state. Perhaps an esoteric 'chip amp' might suit?

If I owned your wonderful speakers, I'd be curious to listen to a good chip amp on the end of them, such as those made by Clones Audio (like the 25IR). Alternate finished amps are about, such as the Blok made by PTP Audio and others, but are more expensive.

Perhaps a Tripath amp might also play well, like the few remaining of those crafted by Virtue Audio? With their better power supplies, I think you might discover something new and worthwhile.

Other than that, I think an ANK L1 El84 might also be a usefully musically combination, from my experience of EL84s - and it would still be in budget.

Just a few ideas.
