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

Perception of sound by the ear/brain is a complex phenomenon as studies have shown. What appears to be more linear on paper may not be perceived as so. That said: my personal system is fully differential, triode, zero feedback, transformer coupled input to output. Even the output stage is set up as a diff. pair with a CCS "tail" (forced class A). There are many on the forum who avoid transformers because of their distortion. I happen to prefer their distortion to that introduced by capacitors. Each to his own.
