Looking for a new Amp or Preamp? If you're after tubes, post over here.

and there's tube life to consider

Leaving tube amps on just wastes tube life. To quote the Vanimal, "There are only so many electrons available to jump off that plate."

While I've had s/s amps that sounded better after being powered on for a day or two, I've never heard any improvement with tube amps after the first hour or so. YMMV.
