Transmission line speakers - great with tubes
Can those with experience, explain why transmission line speakers are great with tubes? I've been using my Buggtussel Circa speakers, which are transmission line based, with both my Scott 222C and John Hogan 300B SET.
The sound is just outstanding! I thought I was going to run into trouble because the Buggtussel Circa's are 89DB sensitivity and the Scott 222C is 18watts/ch and the JH 300B is 8-10watts/ch.
The sound is so good in fact, that I've bought another pair of transmission line speakers to (possibly) replace the Buggtussel Circa's. The new (to me) speakers that I have coming are a pair of Meadowlark Swallow's. I'll post my impressions of both of these transmission line speakers.
It's fairly close to an "apples-to-apples" comparison. Both are 2-way configurations, same sensitivity (89DB), fairly close tweeter and woofer sizes, and employ high quality point-to-point crossovers.
