as tubies would have us believe. That ever so slight rolloff of tubes has also been known to smooth out the high frequencies of metal dome tweeters and the dreaded digital glare of red book. This is often miscredited to such things as linearity...
It sounds like Aczel makes objective observations and sticks by them. While never having read his widely trashed publication myself, at least he probably never had said that his opinion was subjective. Does he trash subjectivists as much as they freely trash him?
Certainly not frequencies.
"Note the more extended ultrasonic bandwidth of tetrode compared with triode in these graphs: –3dB at 115kHz vs –3dB at 87kHz, respectively. "

It was JA vs Arny Kruger a couple of years ago at a Stereophile Show, IIRC.
Kruger is a noted radical objectivist on rec.audio-opinion, rabid pro-DBTer and co-inventor of the ABX box.
Arny was more bark than bite. It was JA by a unanimous decision.
You can probably find a transcript on the Stereophile site.
In the debate, Arny Krueger wiped the floor with John Atkinson. Atkinson wasn't able to make a single point against his arguments.
The link below is to a rather self-serving article by Jason Victor Serinus article which includes a link to the an audio file of the debate. The link is in the editor's note just above the picture.
