Posts by Il Mostro   I am guessing Head Room might have a more accurate and credible take on this than you.
Shure SE-215 might float your boat.  Definitely worth looking into given your budget and wish list.

    Yeah, if that's what you were going for I need to withdraw the "schitty idea" comment.  I am all about transparency with Stax and full size speakers systems, but there is no reason not to shoot for a different flavor.  
    That doesn't say much for the transparency, or lack thereof, of the WEE.  Your Cary is a nice, *sweet* sounding little integated amp whether in triode or ultra-ilnear modes  -- but a long ,long way from being anywhere near transparent.  So no surprise in the sameness to your ears.  Don't get me wrong, KT88's are among my favorite tubes.
