Single Ended Triodes (SETs), the ultimate tube lovers dream.

What do you mean by "troll"?

"20. The operating potentials of a tube must be adjusted so that
conduction takes place in the proper operating regions of the
characteristic curves. Selecting an operating point for a triode on
the straight portion of the characteristic curves [and limiting the input signal so the operation of the tube never leaves the straight portion of the characteristic curve] will provide

c. a change in plate current that is proportional to a change in
grid potential."

This is , more or less, the definition of the linear operation of a triode.

Your output tubes are not operated this way.

"In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts inflammatory,[2] extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response[3] or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion."

"inflamed, Provoke or intensify (strong feelings, esp. anger) in someone."

This is not my intent.

"extraneous, Irrelevant or unrelated to the subject being dealt with."

This is not unrelated or off-topic at all.

Your claim about your amplifiers, "....and outright linearity takes care of the odd ordered harmonics (so its not harsh either)."

This is meant to be a technical, scientific discussion and analysis of the output stage of your amplifiers as to whether or not they should be described as operating in a linear way.

I am refuting what you have claimed and I am doing so with known science.

What is your technical response?
