What tube amp works best on Edís horn speakers?

I really need your help to decide on an integrated tube amp for my soon to arrive Horn Shoppe horn speakers.

I am listening on everything from FM/AM talk radio, pop, rock and any other bad music out thereÖ
The listening level is from low to medium level.

I like bass when it's deep and controlled though I donít know if the HornShoppe Horns will play any deep bass but I assume it will help if the amp can do it well.

First, what work best with Edís Horn Shoppe horns a SET or Push-Pull amp?

Any Horn Shoppe Speaker owner who has any experience with any of the amps listed below, I really need your opinion how it sounds as a combo.

- Decware SE34i.2
- Vaughn Audio Carina
- Almarro A205A MkII
- Vista Audio Model i84

Please feel free to suggest any other amp out there.

I'm willing to spend around $1500.

Mullman is getting very satisfactory results with a Select although modified still is at the 1.8 watts per side. If you talk to Ed he may recommend the First Watt amp. Other folks I have talked to about the horns claim they are not finicky about the power rating of the amp but will reveal a crappy one.

Can't speak to the rest of the amps you mentioned since I have not heard them, but for about half of what you are willing to spend why not try the Taboo? My Taboo and Ed's Horns make beautiful music together.
