One of the cool things about this thread is that its author already HAS a ClariT. He's just letting his curiosity run wild.
I for one, have completely lost my taste for thermionic distortion and tube-induced "warmth." Or expensive driver tubes flaring out just as I am picnicking on the floor with a new girlfriend, or some other highly inopportune moment. People forget about what a f***ing hassle tube amps can actually be. Biasing issues, real vibration issues, expense, OUCH!! that's HOT!! issues. Oh, the tubes are on back-order, issues, and on and on......Many of you know exactly what I am talking about.
Since mine ears have been re-educated, I have heard several highly praised tube amps, and I found them abit wanting. As always, YMMV.
What I would like to see is matching ClariT amp and Omega Speakers in burled Maple. Something retro, vintage, with brass hinges, and no need for AC. High tech with a Victorian vibe.
