Budget Tube amp for Low-impedance cans?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi,

 

I have used solid-state amps (Lovely Cube, Audio-gd Roc, etc) with low-impedance cans like K701, and now, I'm trying to go into the tube amp world. Crack OTL looks good and budget but it doesn't seems to be for me because most cans I have are low-impedance.

 

Could you head-fiers make a tube amp recommendation for me?

 

Thanks.

if you want to use low impedance cans with tubes, you have to go hybrid. tubes arent very good at amplifying current, but hybrid amps should do the trick.
