If my active adventures work out successfully with my Magnepans, I'll be looking to sell my Plinius for a 100w+ valve amp for tweeter/ mid bass duties. I will read this thread with interest therefore.

Does anyone on here own a higher power valve power out of interest?? 

just picking up on comments I read in the forum or elsewhere, KT120 equipped amps seem to be a particular sweet spot for higher powered designs. Maybe a good alternative to look for in addition to the more established 845 or KT88 designs.

It gets watered a lot. Actually, it rather likes the heat I think, as it's thriving now.

Having owned many lovely valve amps over forty years, this is, by a short margin, my favourite!

My old Cary 572 single ended. I wish I had a big store room, so I could hang on to the really good stuff like this.  Oh, and more funds to buy new gear without moving the good stuff on!

an Icon MC368-BSE - probably the gutsiest valve amp I've had. Its quad of KT90 easily saw off 200wpc of solid state.
