I've heard the VTL ST-150 which was a really nice amp, but a little out of my price range.
The ST-150 uses 6550's and the ST-85 uses EL34 which means it will probably sound similar but different.
Anyone owned a VTL ST-85 (or ST-80)??
How is tube life on these amps? Any reliability problems? Did you compare it to anything else?
It would be hooked up to a Sonic Frontiers SFL-1 and a pair of B&W CDM-1s.
