It depends on the dsign implementation. Heated Triode gear is hard to implement but if the desings eliminate caps in the signal paths then I found most sound better then any other design wth caps in the signal path.

BigKidz your observations are spot on in my opinion regarding the absence of signal path capcitors. In my own experience it seems that designs that use DHT and an interstage transfomer in place of a capacitor do seem in general to be more pure and natural in sonic character, by this I mean less of an electronic/mechanical artifact that I now notice with the more common pentode tube/signal cap alternatives. I do realize there are exceptions to this personal observation.
