RE: I'm a generation behind on ARC amps

I always wanted to say that ARC's "house sound" is solid state sounding. I didn't want to get flamed from their many fans for saying it, I admire your courage.
I also want to add that Bob Carver was advertizing at one point, that he could make the same model amp sound like a typical golden age tube amp, or if the buyer preferred, a modern sounding tube amp. I think we can safely agree with Ralph, that it is the circuitry that determines the ultimate character of the amp. I imagine everyone except me, knew that already. That's from a guy that is an inveterate tube roller.
