Keep it vintage.  A nice Marantz 22 series model,  if u can find one clean, good working, priced right.  If not,  check out Kenwood's 5000 series model's.  Easier to find with all the quality.   But if u never ran tubes with speakers,  these will be the set to try a tube amp with.   A nice flea amp one watt or less.  You'll be impressed.   Ed

Cornwalls always remind me of that Bevis and Butthead skit. Cornwallios!!!

Other options are Jolida, Magnavox, Rogue, Heath Kit and Dynaco. Even a low watt t amp will make them sing.......don't laugh...I've done it and it sounds great and cheap, too.

Make yourself some 3-channel L/C/R recordings!

Forgot to mention that those little t-amps work very nicely with 'horns (they used to be very cheap to find, too)...

Please let us know what you end up doing, and how you like the sound...
