For nearfield listening in a small room with a low power tube amp.......Omega http://www.omegaloudspeakers.com/omegaspeakerstor.htmlOmega on AC http://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?board=31.0
I'd get your speakers figured out first. Some of these recs here are for pretty low powered stuff. Which is great for the right speakers, but will limit the number of speakers that will work well. Another option is a higher power tube amp like a Rogue (I have a Stereo 90 Super Magnum for sale here, which would allow you to use a number of tube types to dial in the sound you want, and can be run in two modes) that will drive most speakers.
So far I've heard a couple Decware nominations. I've read some user reviews and they say it's some of the lowest/blackest noise floor they've ever heard. I WANT THAT! That'd be killer.But can someone give me a quick understanding of the different Decware offerings? I see SET vs. SEP, etc.
I do realize I will need high efficiency speakers, but my main goal right now is to get the analog/tube sound - so I'd rather start with the amp and pair the rest of the hardware to it, if possible.
From 4 feet away, go with active studio monitors. They're designed for nearfield listening. Saves money. And since it's your office, you'll save space, too, because you won't need to make room for an amp. I'd go with the Emotiva Stealth active studio monitors for $1,500/pair. https://emotiva.com/products/powered-monitors/stealth-8
Not a bad suggestion, but doesn't fit what the OP wants.
The OP can get the "tubey sound" he wants from a tube preamp.
