Which Chinese integrated tube amp have the power for Rock Song ?
I am new to tube amp ! What I more interested is which brand and model can cater to such high dynamic and speedy rock song with bass, drum and etc...Of course, I still love clear vocal, piano and well..

I know of Cayin, Yaqin but not much idea as which model is suitable for such song/music..Appreciate if you can share your thought and ideas since I am looking to buy one to start with..thanks.

I use a tube preamp and solid state power amp for rock (rock is supposed to be listened loud) , but if you want a tube amp look for something with as many watts as possible , it also depends on your speakers effeciency/sensivity

Thanks for the reply. I am having Monitor Audio Silver RS6 speakers..What do you think ?How many watts is the recommended for listening to rock song ?

you speakers should be 88-90db sensivity , i would go with something like these (65w in ultra linear mode)

your speakers have a bright sound and lack low end , a active subwoofer should improve overall sound quality

from time to time some used Vincent ( shanling in china ) amplifiers are on ebay , they are hybrid (tube+transistor) , but have lots of power for your kind of speaker

Do you have Shanling website ? PM me if needed.
If I buy another subwoofer, which brand and model will match my speakers from watts perspective ? I assume will need preamp inorder to go for sub connection ?

Below model also fine ? Thanks and appreciate your sharing.

9.5w may be a little undwepowered for your speakers

this integrated with remote might be better (70W)

you need a way to connect the your source(s) ( pc , cd player ) to the line in of the sub amp , a preamp with line out might be the best option , it will also help your tube amp

a active sub(with built in amplifier) like this JBL , i have the es250p (400w) but the es150p (300w) is more than enough.

or you can build your own sub with a class d amp , there are many cheap ones on ebay

A17CS (SV236 MK upgraded)

Vincent - SV-236MK Hybrid Stereo Integrated Amplifier - Vincent-tac

same model shengya version and vincent version

but be very careful when buying from chinese

if you are from usa this is the american dealer for shengya

Thanks for your advice. Appreciated ! I will check with china manufacturer direct. The shanya website said they have no other Internet distribution except the American distributor you mentioned.

Now, back to amp topic. With that Vincent model, it will definitely have the power for bass and can rock the house down with my rs6 speakers? Must I still need sub if I am going with Vincent amp? I read and looks like preamp is already inbuild right?

mingda mc34ab is your best bet for awesome sonics.

but i advise against chinese amplifiers because they always off-gas something foul.
