Not from my point of view (I have all tubes). If all of your components are warm and mushy I supposed it could be too much, however most tube equipment today is fairly neutral. The benefit tubes bring are not so much tonal benefits as they are a sense of liquidity in the midrange and airiness in the highs. In fact some tubed products are downright chilly in tone. In your place I would get a tube line stage which is known for neutrality such as a Joule, Lamm, CJ or some such.
