Aw dang. When the say hybrid for this amp, I think the output stage is solid state. I thought hybrid meant the rectifier was solid state. I assumed because there are two sets of tubes, one is for the pre-amp and the other for the final stage. Silly me.

I really do want to hear a tube amp. It might be cool for the office. It's been 35 years since I've heard and worked with tubes. I repaired a lot of tube radios and TVs back in high school. I even built my own amp back then from scrap gear but had no idea what to listen for.

I want a real tube amp. Maybe I should build my own. I could use the gorgeously simple but oomphy linear power supply Andrew built for the ADA. smile But I need higher rails and more windings on that heavy donut.

BTW, a tube amp doesn't offer higher fidelity. But I can understand how ear-brains might like it.

This thread is from a while ago that shows my 10 Tube setup that drive my M2s + 2X EP400s audio only system.

The MC-100B is quite a brawny setup that weighs 60+ Lbs largely due to the four hefty power supply canisters. It is a dual mono design for genuine 2 channel separation. Sounds wonderful & heats my house at this time of year, ha!

Pics start on page 3 although some are lost in the ether somewhere:

The latest MC-100B Amazon (US) listing is double what I paid a few years ago:
