Hi David here. One of the main reasons tube amps have had such a huge resurrance over the last 15 years has been the 3 deminsonial sound and life they give to a somewhat flat and hard sounding medium,the compact disk. Dont get me wrong I still think my Linn Lp-12 sounds amazing but I love collecting new music,400 discs and counting and think many discs sound very good to great. Im using the Cary 306 player with Arc pre and power amp and would have a hard time switching to SS gear. Sometimes I bitch about the cost of NOS tubes,replacement etc. but really this is the kind of sound that often plays late into the night.
