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

RE: Right. Now explain that to your buddy Dennis!(nt)

"I am all for Dennis' approach"

So am I.

It's been said that the wire from the plate of the driver tube to the grid of the output tube is important in Dennis' design.

So add another wire to it, twice as long. Be careful to keep it away from other wires and the chassis. We don't want stray capacitance or inductance to muddy the experiment.

Do this to just one amp.

Now listen and see if you can hear a difference.

If you think you can, please have a friend there to make sure you don't know which amp you're listen to. Can you still hear a difference?

That's how I know that it doesn't matter.

How's that for experimentation, empirical learning, iterative methods, questioning, taking a different approach and actually listening to the results?
