Lush and Romantic Tube Amps


Hi All -

I am on a quest for a lush, warm and romantic tube amp. Ideally, it should be 75 watts and upwards. I’m in a large room and my speakers are 87.5 sensitivity and 8 ohm. The room is large. 

The system:

LTA preamp 

Innuous Zenith music server 

Merason Dac 1 

Cardas Clear cables 

 

Suggestions are welcomed.

I’ve heard the Leben extensively with 86dB Harbeths and it’s a great match.

Bluethinker--yes, I would be a little concerned about an older CJ amplifier.  I'd probably send the unit to CJ if I got it used to have them check it out,

Another possibility is VAC.  You might like their older amps like the Renaissance 70/70.  VAC is very good about supporting their older amps, if you get one used.

Space-tech. Have one custom-made just for you. Amazingly affordable and amazingly rich warm sound
