Default KEL84 Conundrum/advice

The amp is just over a year old. It feeds Living Voice speakers (94dB efficiency). The preamp is a valve Schiit.

Over the last few weeks I think I've noticed a bass boominess. I plugged in a DADA-modified Quad 306 (after a few beers) and thought that it sounded better. I need to repeat the whole op tomorrow night (when my wife is away).

Assuming the same conclusions...what to do?
1. Sell the KEL84
2. Upgrade to the next WD amp (Kevin Scott the owner of LV reckons that valve amps sound better with his speakers).
3. Tube roll the KEL84 - if so - what are the recommendations?
4. Examine the KEL84 for component malfunction...(what...where....how?)

Thanks,
Richard.
