Thanks for the comments.

I initially ran my PWD direct into the amp with excellent results, but adding a tube pre to the mix takes the performance to a completely different level.

That was my exact experience when I added my Aesthetix Calypso tube preamp between my DAC(modified TACT 2.2X) and my McCormack amp.  I don’t fully understand how it can make such a tremendous difference, but it does.

I know the OP has settled on his choice but I thought I'd add my 2 cents.  I listen to my HT2-Tls with either a pair of Transcendent 150watt monoblocks and more recently via a Bob Latino ST-120 kit I built.  60 WPC, and a lot of fun to build!  I am a 2 channel music only guy, but I never feel I run out of power.  Much of the stuff I listen to was all recorded in analog and probably with tubes somewhere in the circuit so why not?  Try tubes, you'll never look back.  At least for music.
