Some find the overall Lamm sound as slightly 'dark'; and by contrast with certain amps there is that relative difference. For myself I don't think of them as dark but as offering a tonal depth that delivers realistic fundamentals and overtones. To my ears, the opposite of their character is not 'light' but lean.

What speakers do you have?
My speakers are Dali Euphonia MS4, my current power cords are Analysis Plus Power oval 4 plugged directly into the wall with a 20 amp dedicated circuit. Will look into the stillpoints

I've not heard the MS4s, but from their specs (3.6Ohm minimum, 88dB sensitivity) the M1.2s should drive them fine. With dedicated circuits in hand you've already won most of the battle. The Stillpoints will make more of an improvement than power cords at comparable cost and actually will help you better assess power cord differences. Wrt tubes, see this thread in the AA Lamm forum.

Thanks for your help Lima. Yeah the 2.1`s REALLY drive the Dalis! Botom end is amazing, a non-audiophile friend described it as earthquake bass, and the mids are sooo seductive I always want to listen to the next LP and not end the session. Will give serious thought to the stillpoints also thinking about tweaking my amp stands
