    Default Setup advice...

    Hi all...

    Here's what I have to ask -
    I have been looking to purchase a tube preamp recently to go with my Carver TCM 35x 250 wpc amp. Somethign came up and I have an opportunity to buy a Jolida 1501 RC integrated amp. It is basically a tube preamp and solid state power amp in one. I origianally thought it was all tubes, and thought it was a no-brainer. I know Jolida is a good name, but it seems I would be losing some power. It is rated at 100 wpc into 8 ohms, and 200 wpc into 4 ohms. Would that be a better option than finding a simple tube preamp to go with the current setup.

    The price of the Jolida is 450 dollars. Let me know your opinions please, especially if anyone has this integrated amp. It would be powering SDA 1C's in a 2 channel setup. Current setup is below.
