Eventualy I would like to Bi-Amp my mains and I have been kicking around my options on this. I could go the easy route and buy 2 solid state 2 channel amps from Onkyo (MT208's) and send 200 watts to each tower and know that they will be a perfect match for the internal amp inside my Onk 787. On the other hand I hear so much about tube amps. Let me say that to me, Vinyl is dead.. I am not one to embrace poor old technologies just for the sake of calling myseld an audiophile. Sorry if that offends the vinyl guys, If you love records that is GREAT but to me... They sound like dog droppings. We all have our prefrences. That being said I am wondering if Tube amps would sound good or if they would just drive me nuts.. I hear them described as "warm" or "mellow" yadda yadda. Now the goal of any audio system is to produce accurate music. So, if these Tube amps are merly coloring the audio to make it sound something other than what it should sound like, then what is the point? Also I look at the price of tube amps and I simply can't see where the cash is.. There can't be more than a couple hundred dollars in parts so how they they charge $3800.00 for a 100 WPC x 2 CH tube stage amp? When I could buy a 200wpc Onk for $200.00-$250.00 ? I am sure this is a BIG can of worms and I hope I don't offend anyone too much, I am just curious what other's opinions may be on this subject. Thanks!
