Would using a tube pre-amp in your system with a solid state power amp yeild the same sonic effect as using a tube power amp?
Tubes add coloration toBrett, I must strongly disagree with this statement. Tubes these days are as accurate as any solid state amp, and with a good one even more so. And you don't have to spend lots of money to get a good one. There is a lot of trickle down technology in the $1K to $2K offerings. ARC's new "open" tube amps are a good example.
