I have heard through the grapevine that tubes sound good with the song Towers. And also either way, integrated or separates I'd really prefer to keep it under 3500Song Towers
transmission line 88dB 4 ohms minimum
6 ohms average
I'm new to this game so take my point of view for whats worth..!!
From what I see the S.T.'s are 88db efficient..??
You will need a fairly powerful Tube Amp ( $$$$ ).. They are out there but I believe are hit or miss ( system dependent )..
I agree with ICT WOODY on the Odyssey Amp and a nice Tube Preamp..
Get a decent SS amp and Voice it with the Tube preamp..!!I own a Odyssey "Stratos++" which is paired with a Decware "CSP3" preamp.. ( this is my recommendation )..
I had a Odyssey ,"Candella" preamp .. But the Decware "CSP3" preamp made me sell the Candella ..
In my opinion the Decware preamp OUTCLASSED the Candella with one arm tied behind it's back.. ( still have yet to roll any of the stock tubes )
1. Odyssey amp ( used ) -- $700 to $1200
2. Decware (csp3 , with 25th anniversary mod ) preamp -- $1300 to $1800 Total $ 2,000 to $3,000
Spend remaining on $500 to $700 on Cable upgrades (Full Loom of "Crossover line" from CullenCable )..
Again I'm somewhat new to this game , but from the experience I have with these products ( brands ) I'm very satisfied..
