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

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

I know and Nelson Pass mentions this. So you're compensating for the air, a tone control for the air? But the topology of single ended still adds one more type of non-linearity to the non symmetry of the air.

I will ad that since no amp is totally linear we end up picking the one we like, hopefully from among the better, more linear amps. It's just that this non-symmetry bothers me when I think about it. And I think it needs to be pointed out that this is meaningful especially given the normal bias of those who like SET citing its simplicity and that it doesn't split the signal and put it back again. SET is more of a trade off than its lovers claim

As for me my bias is for a push/pull triode amp with no overall negative feedback. Plus it allows reasonable power output for todays lowish efficiency speakers.
