Re: Tubes anyone?
I still enjoy tubes in my two channel system. Both my current Conrad Johnson and my most recent past preamplifier, McIntosh, are tubed. While the best solid state designs are excellent in their own right and in some areas better than tubes, they haven't yet captured the magic of the tube. Its been a long time since I have had a tubed amplifier in my system but I don't recall ever having any problems with it not being powerful enough to get the job done although I did need to crank up the AC.
