Verdantaudio I appreciate your response since I was curious what others have experienced with hybrids. As you stated the hybrids get close but no cigar which is what I would have expected. A couple of dealers I spoke to concur with your findings. ...

I would consider a new Rogue Audio Magnum 3 integrated amp also. Made here in the US and great customer service. It has 100w per channel, a phono section and a headphone jack. Very easy to bias the tubes and it comes in 2 finishes. If interested c...
