@SWarisShah @kursed Within a 40k budget. You can easily go for a shiit stack.
@SWarisShah @kursed Yes this is the one. It has Chinese tubes by default. Even those are better than no amp. Cant say - been using mine for over a year. Replaced tubes because I wanted to upgrade to vintage.
@SWarisShah @kursed Shiit stack has a more sterile soundstage while vintage tubes are warmer and more expansive. At the slight cost of accuracy.
@SWarisShah @kursed That's the best budget amp for vintage tubes. Little Dot MKII - ($160). The tubes are Russian Gold Grid tubes and Mullards Black Plate with Matched Triodes ($100). The best vintage tube for this amp is the Siemens Blue Glass but those are now almost impossible to find.
@SWarisShah @kursed That's a good budget. You can go with a shiit stack (modern tubes) or a vintage tube amp (little dots) or a good solid state amp. Any good amp that's capable of 300 ohm impedence will do fine. All of these are best bought from US.
