Heard them side by side. For background noise, the same as solid state. For Riaa EQ, same tonal balance. The tube one has more forward and juicy rounder SE tube amp style presentation. The Simplistic is more correct with more depth and detail. The tube one is better than the Bench cascode for comparing tube units. It does not enjoy a shunt yet, but a Maida. The Simplistic and the Bench have shunts. Maybe there is more in to it if with shunt, though I don't hear the Maida typical hardness on it due to its good PSRR being a Mu follower.

The Simplistic is max bang for the buck. I know of people that will prefer the more enthusiastic Valve Itch style especially in rather dry systems. But under controlled, known variables, the Simplistic sounds more ''monitor'' without losing musicality. It remains to listen to the Itch with a HV shunt reg at a point.

I know.. I know

I am wondering if the space left from removing the MM Riaa will enable me to place a Burson V2 discrete opamp there... I know these do not need any output cap.

I did not give up my preamp project but I already spent a lot in building two pedja buffers with dedicated high spec +-15v psu that I did not finish

I must study the case intensely before moving on.

Actually I am amazed with the quality sound I am hearing in this new setup. (Maybe the 10k serial resistor was closing the sound a bit)

Yes, it was adding on source impedance, plus imposing its quality traits in series.
