I'm looking for a very clean powerful amp. I like the warmth of tubes but don't really like the "sponginess" . On the other hand, most solid state amps sound really brittle to my ears. I don't really like hybrids like SWRs, prefer the super fast response of a ss preamp. I also like very simple controls. I'm definitely not a parametric guy. Unfortunately I can't afford a Glockenklang. Any suggestions? Thankss!!!
