And more exotic and esoteric realms from CS Port, Japan. The 212PA tube power amplifies are based around the 212E and C3g tubes and they use hybrid (switching/analog) power supply to deliver 40Ws per channel...

"The problem of inevitable noise in the switching power supply has been solved by experienced engineers with 40 years of  experiences in the switching power supply design."

"You can not escape distortion as long as you use an amplifying part. The countermeasure is whether to use a device with good linearity or how to reduce the number of devices. For the first stage of the two-stage configuration, we use a highly reliable, high linear C3g vacuum tube developed by Deutsche Telekom. The amplifier uses only C3g on the input and 212E on the out, suppressing the harmonic distortion and the intermodulation distortion.
