Home Tube DIY Asylum

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

RE: Has anyone else tried this experiment?

I was just going to add a post about this! One thing that might be causing it is the fact that I am using music that is not very dynamic and playing it at only moderate listening levels. However it is the music I mostly listen to (jazz, blues, soft rock) and the level I listen at, so it seemed appropriate. This would tend to suggest that the differences in amps might not matter too much under average listening conditions unless you are heavy into dynamic music. I think using more dynamic music at higher levels might be problematic for testing this way due to room acoustics and the shortness of the passages. I will give it a try in the next few days and see what happens.
Also, I wish I owned a SS amp that I could try against the tube amps. If I could not hear a difference then I would be really surprised. Might have to look for a used one just for the knowledge.
