Which good stereo valve line processor > 1500$ ?

Hi I only know the SPL Charisma2.
I'm looking for alternatives to process pretty much any musical signal (acoustic or digital) through a good valve circuit that will add its harmonic distortion & overall enhancement.

I'm not really wanting a "colored" tube processor ( a la Drawmer 1960) although all suggestions welcome. I'd prefer smth that just does what good valve circuits do - add a kind of presence, crispiness and clarity combined with a certain warmth. Like coming in front the mix without using eq. or pushing up faders.
And don't really want muddiness (baaad valves!)!

Oh and yeah new/used less than 1500 preferably around the 800$ mark for stereo or 2+ channel

Thanks a lot slutz!

SPL TubeVitalizer has a very good tubestage when used in Attenuator mode.
It's based on an old AEG circuit from the 50th.
I use mine with VALVO tubes.

Peavey vmp great pre with eq options.
Looptrotter Sa2rate seems like it would be cool ?
Sounds Skulptor Tape simulator seems like a good cheap solution!
