Ok, so I know the age old debate on if tube emulation really can sound like an all tube head. We're not here to debate this. As we all know, the tube power section is the discerning factor between all tube heads and tube emulation. Seeing how DI's and standalone tube pre's going into solid state power sections are all the rage nowadays, I'm wondering: what sounds closer when plugged into a solid state power amp, a tube emulator circuit (VT bass etc.) or a standalone tube preamp (SVP-Cl etc.)?
