What is it about Tubes that makes audio sound so much better?
As hybrid amps with both tube and solid-state amplifier stages, these amplifiers are the best of both worlds. The tube preamplifier section ensures that harmonics generated by overdriven signals are pleasant and musical, while also ensuring the output stage is never given a clipped, DC signal to amplify. This means that the solid-state power amplifier is less likely to distort, thereby avoiding harsh, unmusical harmonics and ensuring that speaker-killing DC signal is not produced. Since the audio signal cannot clip the tube, you do not need the higher power output levels of pure solid-state amps, which use the extra power as headroom to handle musical peaks without clipping. A 25-watt tube or hybrid amp can sound as loud as a 50-watt solid-state amp.
