I also love the look of tube amps like the WooAudio6 and always wanted to try them. I listen to all kinds of music. Mostly House and electronica with vocals. Is SS the way to go or would something like the WooAudio6 be better than the c2c. I dont know much about tube amps. What would be the major difference. Please help me on this. I guess I would be going through my D10 for the DAC. I would appreciate any suggestions!

I had this combo and was very fond of it. I had the Ref-1 driving it which doesn't hurt but I think you'll be happy with it. People say to get the volume pot upgrade though. I have read that the Denon's are not well suited for tubes, that they need a powerfull SS amp, but I have no experience with tubes (yet).

Based on my limited experience (I had a D5000 and Compass for a while), I thought the Audio-Gd sound mated well with Denon. A higher end Denon + a higher end Audio-Gd should be a recipe for greatness, enjoy the combo!

It is true that the Denon (D2000 and D5000) sound great out of SS amps it is also true that they sound very good out tube amp. If with tubes it seems that transformer coupled amps are able to handle th low impedance of the Denon cans. However My MPX3 w/ a couple of 6BL7 tubes driven by a 2C51 driver made the Denons sing beautifully.

So what I am saying is that only you can make the call of what sounds good, and only after trying a few amps. Ideally you should attend a meet to try a few units, with the caveat that a meet is an small snapshot plus they tend to be loud. Good luck.
