Yes I've tried the SS buffer route using it before and after the TVC. It didn't make a difference either way I tried it in my system.
I've tried active tubes as the preamp. There's a certain thing tubes do that you can't get from the others.. this is true. At the same time I loss some of the transparency I've grown to love. I suppose it is a give and take.
That's probably why it is best to own one of each passive/tube and SS active. This way depending on the mood you get the sound you're looking for that day.
I've heard of audiophiles running an active tube preamp with their TVC.
I think Nick likes this sound as he also makes an active tube stage for his TVC. Maybe one of these days I'll get a chance to try the Promitheus active tubed stage with my TVC.
