. To sound more SS like he would put Pac volume up to -10 to 0 db and to sound tubey, he would dip blow say -18db.
When you say you'll get a more tube influenced sound with a lower vol setting on the Pac (-18 db for example) and a more ss sound with a higher vol setting on the Pac (-10 for example)..... Are you speaking in the context of Steve's tube pre amp? That is, his tube pre-amp gain will have more influence because the Pac vol is set lower? But they are both tube components, so I may not get it.
If my assumption is correct, then would it follow that if one wants to balance a ss integrated amp towards a more tube sound from the Pac, I could experiment with a higher proportion of gain from the Pac?
Sorry, if I'm confused. I'm trying to learn something from you guys!
