I'll bet the Harbeths sound absolutely wonderful with EL34 tubes; I am envious!
Yes, Iím very happy with both the PL-EL34 and Luxman. If I ever get bored, I also have the option of sticking anything from the various EL34ís to from KT66 to KT150 to play around since the PrumaLuna HP allows it. Plenty of experimentation ahead but Iím in no hurry, the stock EL34 sound great

Yeah, I saw that on the PrimaLuna web site. Have to say I'm envious. I'm stuck with 6550s or KT120s with the LP-70S

Not a bad place to be Stephen. Besides, the PL HP integrated or their amps do come up on the market from time to time and they are rather inexpensive as far as audio goes

Because most of my listening is done at average of approx 70dB or so. I would estimate 85% is between 65-75 dB, and 95% is at 65-80dB. Once the SPLs get past 82 or 83 dB, I'm reaching for the volume control. No way I'd be listening at 87dB (except for very occasional loud transients). YMMV, of course, based on the size of the room, but, when one does most of their listening between 68-72 dB (with notably less than 1 watt of power would be required), 20 watts of Class A power at 8 Ohms and 40Wpc at 4 ohms should be more than enough for most people, most of the time.

Cheers, PC
Given your listening level habits - Aegir would be more than enough and I know that you would like the sound My dedicated listening room is small, but (having mixed one too many an album at too high of an SPL) I tend to listen quite a bit louder than you do, so I may try two Aegir's in mono? I can always send the second one back if it isn't working out. Hmmm .... then again, I haven't yet found myself wanting more volume, so I guess I'll hold at one Aegir for now
