    Seems lately that more people are going down the valve route, thought i would put up a poll to see who has what, then maybe compare 6 months down the line.

    Solidstate - although if I ever assembled a second system it would probably be valve. Someting like:

    Prima Luna into Proac Response 1sc's.... nice

    Solid state.



    And I think there are loads of SS amps out there that give a give facsimile of valved amps whislt being Solid Class A or SS Valve hybrids. Ie Sugden, Copland, Unico. The idea of a valved pre-amp running SS or Digital power amps makes a lot of sense to me. Anyway just a vore for good old SS in this sea of valves (nice that they are).
