Can't argue with that, but it leaves one thing out. How close to perfect do you want to get, and how much are willing to spend to get there?
I suppose for some people money is no object, but for the rest of us there will always be trade offs. Each of us has to determine for themselves what those will be.
It's not a philosophical issue. The Hammond transformers you're using fall short of hi-fi performance. Reasonable cost alternatives are available from Hammond, Edcor and Triode Electronics. Used transformers by HK, Scott and Fisher also show up occasionally on eBay. Full range OPTs will make a significant contribution to the sound of your amps.
Buy Chinese. Bury freedom.
It is a philosophical issue in that we all have our own opinion of what "reasonable" is and what sounds good to us and how much we want to spend.
There is no such thing as perfection with audio electronics.
Even with the best parts it's always a series of compromises, as is life.
