I tried lots of tube and SS amps but my Omens sounded best with a 3.5 watt 2a3 SET.
That's not fair - everything sounds better with 2A3 - maybe not better "loudly" but better. I LOVE the 2a3
I listen at 75db to 80db. Bass and dynamics are strong and satisfying. Less than 75db runs into Fletcher-Munson. Amps are Rogue Audio Atlas Magnum (kt120) and 99 Magnum. Room is 16x19, listening to both kinds of music, that is, Rhythm and Blues.
I use my Zu Omen with a Mcintosh mc2105 that pumps out 105 Watts +++ and they sound great... no need for a tube amp. I do have a tube amp that I use one in a while, with the Mcintosh the sound has a lot more mass.
This is with a Musical paradise MP301 at 6.5 watts and average 73db listening level and is plenty for me .
