Does this speaker exist?
I would test drive some devore fidelity gibbon 88 or orangutan. The soundstage should be good but not exaggerative.

i really like Jeff Beck, listen to his stuff a lot, he is amazing. For me, I still think that Jimmy Page is much more enjoyable. 
Output watts per tube
I have used Ruby Kt88 tubes and think they were very good. 
Most economical way to max performance of B&W 804
For 2 channel look for a 2-channel integrated amp with a home-theater pass through if you want to use in conjunction with your HT receiver. I would try to listen to Krell, Musical Fidelity, Plinius, etc.

I have had a few correspondences with Mr. Devore and he definitely loves Shindo but there are other amps that he likes too. I am using shindo apetite with silverbacks and the sound is phenomenal but would be better with some more power. For whatev... 
Von Schweikerts for HT: setup and combination.
For a good while, I had 4JR fronts with a VS/1 sub, LCR15 center, and VR-1 for rears in a 5.1 system (still have everything except the 4JRs) in a similarly sized room. This set-up works very well for HT and I don't think that going to 7.1 would be...
