I'd be all over that Millet Minimax you posted earlier.

True, that. I will recant my above judgmental opinion about the RA-1, for now, as I have not heard it. (I was just speaking from experience, reading a lot about the RA-1 amps on these threads. That said, I best find one to try out before I make further remarks.) Cheers!

Thanks for all of the suggestions guys! I ended up going with the Millett Hybrid Max and also bought a Azur 640p preamp. Both should be shipping tomorrow and then I can share my experience!

Edit: Oh, and btw, I think if I could have gotten anything mentioned here, I would have gotten the Mapletree Ear + HD... It was just a little out of my price range (especially for a first-time tube amp). I was close to buying an EC/SS, but I didn't jump the gun fast enough :/
