Not that much difference between that beer commercial and tube vs transistor lovers. Less filling. Better taste. Never going to get those two groups to agree ever!
Now many audiophiles are of the mind that the sound of tubes and solid-state are converging. Yes the latest piece of tube gear are more neutral with greater extension at the frequency extremes. Yes solid state is smoother, less harsh eg more musical and images better.
So I know everyone here has given a great deal of thought as to whether you've chosen to base your system around solid state or tube amps or preamps. Why? There are many reasons that enter into the selection process such as personal choice, sonics, type of speakers, heat, reliability, availability of tubes, etc. So what led to your choice of electronics? And did you start out as favoring one or the other and return to the dark side?
