What's all this "quiet, late night listening", H?

It means the volume at 7 clock, max 8.

 

Thanks Oleg, - I'm aware of that.  My comment was simply a dig at Happy - why on earth do you want to listen to music at such low levels?  :)

 

 

Regards,

Andy

Another solution is to have 2 amps one SET and another SS....I’m listening to my Luxman paired to the LS50s now.

I agree. I have done research and think I need a single end 7 - 10W amp.  Why heat the room and waste electricity?

Then avoid SE of any kind. Avoid valve amps too. SE amps are THE most inefficient amplification available. A 500 Watt Class D amp will produce less heat.

Now I am looking for a good quality SET kit but there are too many on the market. Which one?

Here's a thought: Try out a bunch of different amps. Do not limit yourself to a specific technology and power level. Listen to SE valves, PP valves, Class A SS, Class A/B SS and Class D. 

 

You may be very surprised at what you hear, once you dispense with your preconceptions. 

 

If you want the best SE valve amps available, at the most reasonable prices, yet still demanding the highest build quality, you cannot go past Earle's products:

Excellent sound quality, combined with the finest construction quality available anywhere at any price.

Last year I trialled the Oto for a couple of weeks which I ran through highly sensitive horn speakers. I was initially impressed. It provided a very open and seductive sound which worked great with jazz and acoustic recordings. At lower volumes, the sound stage was more vivid than what my previous SS and push/pull tubes amps provided. On the downside, the dynamics and bass extension were not particularly strong, although that is likely to be less relevant for your circumstances.
