Hi, does vacuum tube rectification vs. silicone diodes for rectification have anything to do with the sound?....Mark Korda
Another advantage I like about tubeequipment, that I never realized before. You can change the dynamics of yourSoundstage, Of course.. but, I recently moved my equipment into a much smaller room. And changing tubes now, Means a lot more. Means adjusting the dynamics , withDifferent tubes to help fit the room size..I never heard anyone mention this advantage before, and I've never had to use tubes this way. But, its works. "OB speakers, and a little tube equipment, sounds Amazing..."Just saying...
The good thing about tubes is that they can significantly alter the sound. The bad thing about tubes is that they can significantly alter the sound.
1. I've read comments to the effect that "as you approach the state of the art, solid state and tube equipment begins to sound very similar".
2. I've read that tube equipment tends to generate more even-ordered harmonic distortion. Does this mean that distortion in a tube preamp can cause the sound to come across as "richer" and "fatter"?
3. I've read with interest Roger Sanders excellent white paper on tubes vs. solid state, and his comments make sense, for power amps. But what about preamps? Do preamps clip?
