I had run Magnepan MG1.5Qrs on the the MC100, sounded fantastic at low to moderate volume, but broke up at the level I liked to play at. The bottom end of the bigger maggies is a bit lower, and combined with KT88's felt solid and well-rounded.

Although I listen loud at times, I would like to at least consider a tube setup.
I need an amp and a phono sound stage.

You can still use tubes, hell, the 20L may be just fine for you. But if it's loud you're after on occasion, a little more available power will be useful. You can still go with tubes and get 100watt/channel, just going to cost alot! You can use a tube pre and solid state amp, or you can just go with a proven 2-channel receiver, like the HK everyone is using and a sub to fill out the bottom. Options are near limitless and a hell of a lot of them are going to be good.
