If I'm not mistaken, it's bad for planars if you use them on tube amps.

It's not bad for them, it's just unsuitable since tube amps have much higher voltages which would make planars go very loud, but the lack of current would make planars horrible sounding. Some tube amps are output transformer coupled, which converts some of the excess voltage into current, these types of tube amps are generally OK with planars.
