First, I love tubes… they make music… I ain’t going back. I have read, and suspect, that tubes produce “pleasant” distortion. Whatever…
If a recording was made with tube equipment and played on solid state, would it sound the same (i.e., tube goodness would pass through) as if it was made on solid state and played with tube equipment?
Are you aware of any such experiments? Seems pretty easy to test, no?
