I am strongly pursuing buying a tube amp. I am very close to getting a Woo Audio W3 with some modifications suggested by a member here. He also suggested some tubes to improve the sound. Looking into the cost of the tubes coupled with the amp would bring the total cost near $700. So, it got me thinking what other possibilities exists if I were to up my budget a bit. Knowing SE tube amps have a vert sweet sound, I was wondering what SE amps are availabe in this price range. Any and all suggestions are welcome! Any comparisons to the W3 would be welcome as well.

Thanks,
Greg

I would recommend the SLAM PPX3 by Singlepower. I owned a silver Woo 3 and it was a good amp. But I much prefer the SLAM.
