Zanden 9600 monos - calling jazzhead

Just want to seek some opinions from others as to the sound/characteristics of the Zanden 9600 mk 2 mono's , especially from Jazzhead who would have heard them with Marten Coltrane 2s and i have coltrane 3s

my main question with these (i haven't heard them) is do i want to move away from SET amplification?

I am using Triode TRX M845 SET monos at the moment which i am really enjoying, but have the urge to upgrade. Should i look at getting something like the Absolare SETs as an alternative? Not sure.
