Although never heard this amp on your speakers, the Transcendent Sound T16 has outperformed a few highly regarded 45 type tube amps on some highly regarded speakers.

This amp is neutral sounding and will disappear in the audio chain. If one wants that SET amp with some 'color' added in the midrange (often called SET magic) and 'softer' bass, buy a SET design. The T16 is noted for being very fast & detailed. This can cause poor recordings to sound exactly as recorded- poor.

I believe the amp outputs 15-watts per channel. Cost is $1199 as a kit or $1699 assembled. The amp requires a preamp.

I'm running my modded Buschorn's (w/FE108EZ's) with a Decware Zen SE84CS, 2wpc SET. Very open and dynamic combination, plenty loud enough (pour moi!). Their 6wpc SEP, would also be a great combination IMHO.

That is a facinating amp. We (ie Chris) had good luck with his (frugal-phile(tm)) EL84 SE parafeed monobloks (in both triode and in RH mode)

The Bottlehead Paramours also worked well.

Check out the Horn Shoppe site. Ed has some recommendations for amplifiers. Many users seem to like the F1. I've been trying to get him interested in a pair of Cymbals, but he's quite happy at the moment.
