That was a great article, and I've always liked the sound of tube amps, but have never owned one. Here is my question: When people talk about some solid state receivers/amplifiers as sounding "warm," I'm assuming they are saying that the sound is trying to sound closer to tubes. That being the case, what amps out there are "warm" sounding? From what I've read, I've seen Marantz and Rotel mentioned in this light. How about Outlaw, Parasound, ATI? Has anybody heard of someone using a 2-channel tube amp for there main speakers and a 3-channel solid state amp for the center and surrounds? Maybe that wouldn't blend. Otherwise, I wonder if anyone will release a 5-channel tube amp or at least a hybrid.
