Are you watching Mission Impossible right now, Peter? I am, and he's in it.

Nice clear and straightforward explanation, Bren.

Like you said, the characteristic distortion for solid-state amps is essentially revolves around the addition of odd-order harmonics, and such only occurs when the amp is overdriven.

Tube amps are 'easy to overdrive' but they distort gradually, and, actually, add in both even and odd-order harmonics to a sound (not only even-order harmonics).

I think that's really interesting. Here is an interesting article on the subject of tube amps, though it mainly focuses on instrument-amplification. I have seen a mixer that had a build-in tube distortion circuit that could add-in a 'tube sound' to a recording during the mastering process. Very cool.

And hey, I'd love to hear a tube amp sometime instead of just hearing recordings of tube amp outputs if the offer's still open, 2x6spds.

Anyway, no one has to come by to listen to my tube system.



I,for one, would be delighted to stop by your place and listen to your tube system. I'll take you up on it the next time I'm in your neck of the woods(where ever that may be).

This entire thread is a tribute to the legend better known as Conrad Dobler. OT entertainment perhaps. A stick of the finger in the eye? A rush of testosterone in an otherwise placid void. What the hell am I talking about?

2x6spds,

I'll preface this by saying I mean no disrespect... read through a few of your posts and how you like to redriver old "flea market/eBay" finds.

You'd be a shoe-in for HGTV Canada's television show Trash to Treasure... they give a team a limited budget to buy flea market stuff, work it over and resell it at a profit. Usually it's crazy old bag-lady types recovering soda shoppe stools with faux fur - would be interesting to see you on there plying your hobby. The home stereo slant would make me want to watch it more, anyway.

Bren R.

Well, it's nice to see everybody made up. That may explain the pills missing from my bottle. Now we can move back into carefree audio mode.
