Single Ended Triodes (SETs), the ultimate tube lovers dream.

RE: The Chinese Market

Please list 5 great Japanese audio brands making SET amps that never fail. And which LM have you heard that both sounds like carp and falls apart.

Chinese cars suck...they like some Indian cars are sold at.prices poor people can afford. So they are not particularly good cars. It's like those WE copy 300b tubes that apparently sound as good or better than WE 300b. Reliability is an issue but they are 1/10th the price and last half as long. You still come out way ahead buying the Chinese 300b.

The LM amps sound a lot better than numerous US amps at more money and barely anyone in Korea or Hong Kong buy American made junk. Does America make anything of exceptional quality? I'd like to know which specific examples of American or Japanese amps that are built better than the 219ia for the same price. And is a similar output tube. 24ish watts 845. The AN JINRO is better but nearly 4 times more expensive.
