Hybrid Integrated amps

Hi. I auditioned Pathos Classic Mk III yesterday and really liked what I heard (on Devore Gibbons). I even preferred it to VTL IT-85 in some music (i.e. indie rock & electronica, although VTL was just toooo good on solo piano & vocals).

So: do you have any other hybrid integrateds to recommend for me? I feel uneasy going with the Pathos w/o other points of reference. I hear marvelous things about Vincent SV236, for example. So please please please flood this thread w/ recommendations and strong opinions on this matter. I'd be thrilled.

Also, I must ask b/c Pathos is similar in price point with PrimaLuna Dialogue 2, which I also read great things about. Thanks for the input!

The Jolida JD 1501A hybrid 100 wpc integrated amp for $695 should also get consideration. The preamp section has 12AX7 input tubes driving a MOSFET solid state power amp section. Good sound for not a lot of money.
