Anyone ever had the chance to compare amps Pass to AR
Yeah. Even in upper echelon gear, it seems that tube amps still have that last drop of "naturalness" that SS just can't quite touch. But SS has the last drop of control and extension that tubes can't quite touch. Otherwise the line between the two types have more in common (especially resolution and tonal neutrality) than not. I think it becomes more of a choice of presentation and general character (exciting vs relaxed, front row vs mid hall) as the main variables. Have fun. Try stuff out.
Personally I find for high power ,especially if using planers,or Electrostats a good Solid State amplifier Is much better suited. Which has High current capabilities, where even a very good tube amp Cannot compete,tube amps are voltage driven much more so then Current .***Everything comes down to the Loudspeaker being used and it's demands on impedance, ***
after a hiatus of more than 30 years I have returned to Nelson Pass, my new 260.8 mono blocks, yes I'm quite happy ...........
