I've been mostly a browser and found lots of information very useful here.  I'm currently looking for a small desktop tube amp for HD-600.  I came across a Carot One Ernestolo which looks interesting.  Does anyone have any experience with tube amp?  I listen to soft rock, jazz, classical and pop music.  My portable rig is RSA Shadow with Shure SE535.  Also looked at ALO Continental V2 as it is a portable tube amp but would much prefer a more visual tube desktop amp.  Any advice would be appreciated.
