so , no eeny weeny FW amps

depending on your DIY skills , you can choose between F6 , F4 (if you have enough potent preamp, F4 not having voltage of his own) , F5 (my least fave , being too righteous ) ,BA3 , Aleph J .......

though , my latest Babelfish J iteration can be good solution too (being cascoded in FE , so higher wattage possible) but you decide is this blatant advertising ...... or friendly advice

Blatantly good advice.

Alex, what sort of front end (source/preamp) will you be using?
