I've been at odds on whether to go for a solid state amp or tube amp. For solid state, I'm thinking of getting a Corda Aria and perhaps upgrading to an Opera later. Reading some of the tube threads has got my head spinning.

Can anyone make recommendations on good tube amps at different price levels, similar to headphones (e.g. entry-level, midlevel, high-level amps)?

~$100 MS1, K81DJ, etc
~$200 A900, DT770, K271S, etc
~$300 HD650, K701, RS1 etc

Not that the amps would fit at those same price levels, but along the lines of what are good entry-level amps, mid-level amps, and high-level amps.
