Looking for a new Amp or Preamp? If you're after tubes, post over here.

RE: Hybrid Preamps

Tubes are awesome voltage amplifiers. Transistors are awesome current amplifiers. When you have a hybrid, they will usually be using the transistors to create a low impedance drive circuit.

In the end, the topology does not matter if the amp does not sound good. The SA-1000 was known as a good sounding preamp, not a "warm tubey preamp".
