Home Tube DIY Asylum

Do It Yourself (DIY) paradise for tube and SET project builders.

RE: What an astonishingly insightful (and iconoclastic) assessment of some formerly revered designs....

Loving SET amps answers where you are coming from. Every amp has its type of colorations and you like lots of second harmonic a very pretty distortion. SET amps are very non-linear. They can't even reproduce a simple sine wave into a real load. Their topology(meaning it can't be cured) causes compression of the negative half of a signal relative to the positive half which is the source of the second harmonic.

If that's what you like it's fine but it's apples and oranges.
