  1. I have encountered the best sound quality ever from a tiny vacuum tube power amp (single ended triode) driving a single driver crossoverless wide-banner loudspeaker. The only limitation: no wall & floor shaking bass and limited overall SPLs – but perfect for near-field listening.

  2. Musicians use tubes in a totally different way than home audio does. Tubes are more linear than transistors, they are not distortion generators unless you use them like musicians do.
