Tube Preamp with Solid State Amp?


Greetings!

I’ve seen some folks using Tube Preamps with Solid State Am ps. I’m thinking of doing that with my system as part of an incremental change. I currently have a Parasound P5 preamp with a Parasound A21 driving Klipsch Cornwall 4’s. Will a decent / good Tube Preamp really make a difference in my sound? I enjoy what I have now but really want to experience Tubes in my system. Thanks!

Well thanks to this thread I am ending up with a Tube PreAmp/DAC/Headphone with remote & a Solid State Class A/B amplifier & both units together are barely as big as an all in one...
I like the sound of my tube preamp and my hybrid power amp (tubes in front, but solid state in back). 
I know this is an old-ish thread, but I wanted to add my $.02. As someone who listens to vinyl 99+% of the time, a tube pre with a SS amp is wonderful. You can do this on a small (audiophile) budget as well if you are willing and able to modify your equipment. I highly recommend a modded Jolida JD9. I have the original, which I modded myself by replacing the op amps, caps, and tubes (Gold Lion), and adding damping material throughout. If you can find one used, this can all be done for less than $600 and will easily compete with preamps $2K+. I run this through a stock Yamaha A-S500 amp (very modestly priced), and my sound never fails to blow people away. I agree with some other commenters here, that this combination gives you the best of both worlds. Though I haven’t had the pleasure of hearing super high end (expensive) setups, this combo blows away any all-tube or all-SS setup I’ve ever heard. Of course, ymmv. Cheers.
Full disclosure - I do have a lot more cash invested in my speakers and deck...
I have the LTA microzotl preamp, with recent modifications by LTA, feeding into a Sanders magtech powering Martin Logan Montis loudspeakers.  A match made in heaven!
