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

RE: xaudiomanx.

Sony,

It's not a question of better. Can one be happy with say a $3K amp as compared to a $14K amp? I would say so! I never saw what it takes to build one but come on! $14K? There is really nothing in parts to an SET amp. In my opinion how do you justify the expense and then Jeff just made a post that the newer versions are way better. What could have been done to it to make it better? Think about it. An SET is an input tube and an output tube with a way to couple the two together(either direct, interstage, or cap), a power transformer(even custom made can't be all that much), and an output transformer, a chassis, and some extra hardware. Now what is the expense here? I would bet on a high end the total cost of parts is $1K or less.

I'm sorry Dennis and Jeff. I just don't see it! Maybe you can clarify!
