Re: Tube or Solid state ?

I have heard the same about sound also but with today's new radios i dont believe that is true, I do believe tubes are more forgiving in regards to driving them hard .I do like the old time sound of tube radio though. Kind of like MP3 and Vinyl

Tube or Solid state ?

Well its opinion time again. What is better to run with a tube radio ? A tube linear or a solid state. Or is it just your personal preference ?
