Default Re: Tubes anyone?

One more thing... for those of you who are concerned about giving up amplifier power as you move to a tube amp... I think all who have used tubes will agree, a tube watt is more powerful than a solid state watt. Engineers can explain why, power supplies or something, but you do get more muscle from a give tube amplifier... not twice as much but noticably more. I moved from a concervatively designed solid state 350 wpc that tests to much more to a 140wpc tube amp and cannot tell the difference. In fact, as well regarded as the SS amp was, I think the low end actually sounds better. And, I'm driving not to easy loads... Wilson WP7s.

As they say, try it you may like what you hear.

All the best..
