C19 Tube Question

Post by wrstps » Sat Apr 02, 2011 6:33 pm

OK, let’s see how stupid I can be: Here’s the question ….I have a C19 coming this week and have been tossing this thought over and over. If I connect a 490t to this wouldn’t this make the output a little too tube like? I mean, can you have too many tubes in line for the output?
