I'll go first. I have heard this amp up against an excellent sounding amplifier I have had the pleasure of auditioning in my rig.....A Cary tube amp. I have also heard it up against a VTL tube amp, both of which had the best sounding tubes in it at the time. The 20 watt tube amp we built at CF amp blew both of them away. In many aspects of the sound reproduction and we are talking about tube amps at 2 to 4 times the power. While I would recommend the 12AX7 tubes over the 6 AX7's, any and all challenges are welcome.
What say you? Would you care to offer your own observations when challenging Bob's measly 20 watt tube amp up against what you have?
Do tell......Inquiring minds want to know.......
The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.
