sound is amazing but if you are in a small room you'll have to consider ventilation cause they get really HOT!!!

WSR gave the Butler Audio amp a pretty good review a while back. I was tempted.
Lots of heat generated though.
|- Buy (gasp!) 7 Tube monoblocks?|

I haven't posted here for a while, I have been out working, making some money and coming back and enjoying my modest HT. However, upgradeitis is biting me again. Right now, I'm running all my audio through a Sunfire Signature 7X200 Amp. Not that there's anything wrong with it, but I have always been fascinated by tube amps, and wondered how they would fit in/sound with my setup.
Now, my audio tastes run the whole gamut, movies, concert CDs/DVDs, ripped music from my HTPC (lossless WMA), regular CDs, sat TV etc etc. Given this scenario, and the assumption that I DO want to keep my surround sound:
- would it make sense to even pursue Tube amps?
- Should I go for 2 tube amps for the mains and use the Sunfire for the rest?
- Buy (gasp!) 7 Tube monoblocks?
All thoughts are appreciated.
