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....

Tom, I thought I remembered reading that you were a musician and preferred SET with DHTs. Andy Evans is who I was referring to for all DHT SET...(hope he doesn't get dragged into this).

My system amps are BottleHead kits. I can set it up 3-stage DHTs or with a IDHT driver by swapping power amps. Over several long listening periods, I always prefer the all DHT.

I agree with Gusser that the speaker and room have the most impact on the sound of a system.

I went from SS (a Nelson Pass design)to tubes because I would get up and turn the SS down after a while... I never do that with tubes except when the wife says to.

It is amazing that people argue so much about something as subjective as how something sounds.
