I know the title is a bit of an oxymoron, but there are a few on my range of $1k to $1.5k if used. I'll be driving 97db Klipsch speakers with it. Here's what I'm considering Antique Sound Lab AQ 1005 DT Omaha Audio OD-300B Bewitch King 300B Jolida JD 300B I was also considering push pull amps with SET sonics like the Jolida JD 707a or the Consonance Cyber 100S but I would prefer triode over push pull. any other models I should consider? I am way too mechanically declined to go the DIY route. I'd probably electrocute myself.
