Audiolui are you in USA?  
Sweet Sounding DAC
I thought the best suggestion was to choose the one you already heard and love, the lab12.  Then, spend $50 for a a wall mounted shelf from Ikea or elsewhere, depending on WAF, and enjoy.  Stop driving yourself nuts with the plethora of contradict... 
Your thoughts on my quest for new speakers
I had, in a long line,  Magnepan 3.7s then I heard and bought Robert Bastani open baffles followed by what I think are my last ever speakers,  Pure Audio Project quintet 15s.  These are exceptional by any set of criteria if your room is big enough... 
Is there such a thing as too much power?
Alexberger:  I neglected to add that the speakers which recently replaced Magnepan 3.7s are Robert Bastanis Mandalla Atlas with the powered 18" woofers.  Some have said they test at 100 or 101dB efficiency.  I can't verify that though. 
Is there such a thing as too much power?
You may be correct about the cause. The tube amps are described as: a pair of tube monoblocks using the 6B4G tube in push pull configuration. The 6B4G is a 2A3 with a different base. These amps put out around 16-18 watts. Built on Magnavox console... 
Is there such a thing as too much power?
Atmasphere, Is there a way to determine an amplifier's lowest point of distortion apriori or is an empirical issue?A personal observation:  I have a very powerful solid state amplifier and a small tube amp  (over 1000W vs. 10W)  and I've recently ...

I recommend Caylx Femto.  You can get a used one near your budget.  It'sreally a wonderful sounding machine. 
Amplifier for the magnepan 3.7i
Recently sold a pair of Rowland Model 11s to replace them with a pair of Spectron Musician iii Mk. 2 run bridged into my 3.7 Magnepans.  Superb.  Well worth searching out a pair. 
Best female vocal recording on CD?
A "new" Hybrid  SACD of Cowboy Junkies, Trinity Sessions.  Fabulous female voice 
Now it's subs
I run a pair of Magnepan 3.7s with a pair of Gallo 10" subs.  The subs are run through a DSPEAKER.  It gives pretty impressive sound.  The thing I wish for most is a volume remote for the subs.  I wouldn't need one if I always listened at the same... 
How to set up REL T-9 with Magneplanar 3.5s?
I have just ordered a pair of Gallo Acoustics 10 inch subs to use with my 3.7s. I'd be grateful to hear of anything you learned in trying to integrate the REL with your Maggies. 
Rowland model 12's still reliable?
I'd be running it behind a Power Plant Premier. Do youthinkthat would make a difference? 
More powerful amp for top or bottom?
I didn't realize the answer was so complex. For more clarity: both Amps are Wyred4Sound; the pre is a BAT VK30SE
