RE: Do tube preamps add or take away dynamics

I certainly think so.
I hate to be so utterly simplistic in my answers, but tubes seem to help give dimension to music. After putting together an all tube system with tube mono blocs, I was astonished at the three dimensional nature of my sound. My tube pre amp a humble AE-3, with it's two 6SN7s had added a lot of magic already. A good audio pal said that he thought that indeed, tube's greatest addition, was producing the incredible sonic picture we were so thrilled to hear, the moment I finished my complete tube set up.
(The mono blocs also fairly humble Cyber 800s by Opera Consonance, 78w from 4 fat bottle EH6CA7s ea. amp)
