Just curious, why would someone go with a tube preamp and solid state power amp?? This might sound dumb, but wouldnt the solid state power amp negate the sound of the tube preamp?? I guess, whats the advantage of going with a tube preamp rather than a solid state preamp when its all going to go through a solid state amp? Sorry, I'm dumb when it comes to this stuff.. I just plug stuff in and hope it sounds good but am looking for different options for future upgrades..
