Find a tube tester and test them.

Music Reference RM9 and Preamp Experiences
I use the Music Reference RM-5 mK 3 with good results.I don't use the phono stage,so can't comment on that.The line stage is very good,have not heard many other preamps with this amp so can't comment.I am very happy with this one. 
really inexpensive power cords
I would put Virtual Dynamics on your list.I am using power 3 and love it. 
Tube amp for "difficult" speakers,,,
If you can find Music Reference Rm 9 Mk 1 or 2,it would give you plenty of power and very good sounding.
