Some question on tube amplifiers
« on: October 09, 2018, 16:02 »
Hi Bros, lately being quite interested in switching to Tube amplifications but a little hesitant to the heat factor (also means power consumptions) and how different will I feel switching from a Class D 500 watts per ch to tube. Can those bros with tube amps kindly share your experiences. Thanks in advance

Or try a tube preamp to those Class D power amps.

While you may not need a 500W Tube amp to be comparable to the Class D 500W you will still need a decent amount of grunt if your speakers are hard to drive.

If you like punchy sound of a solid state and need high current for your speakers, I’m always partial to PrimaLuna DiaLogue Premium with KT120. 80W/channel but doesn’t sound underpowered.

Or 160W in mono configurations

Not cheap but they sound the business.

How about the heat, does it bother you?
