That clear enough?
Power supply is not simple but needs good basic knowledge.

If HF is important for good Lf, why does a valve amp sounds better? The transformer hardly goes further then the audio band.

.

You are making generalist assumptions. Most valve amps I've heard sound distinctly worse than a good SS amp. But that is my preference/bias. You need to clarify yours.

Lot of people aggreed that valves sounds better so its a good idea that you clarify instead of me.
The only good sounding SS amps are the Stasis amps by Threshold and Nakamichi.

By the way these amps use simple power supplies and may be you can advice them.

Okay, you like all valve amps and only Stasis SS amps. That means we now understand your preconceptions a little better.

You heard 'm, folks.
Get yourself a quarter century old, rundown Stasis amp and a set of Sequels, and be done with it.

(got to hand it to him, the entertainment value of this troll is top notch)

liching1952 that last comment is a typical trolling comment. Though I'm sure you already knew that.

No I didn said I like all valve amps, there are also bad ones like Philips which is really junk. I like good valve amps like Quad, Beard, Conrad Johnson etc.
And yes I hear a lot of expensive SS amps, all sounds bad exept the Stasis.

May be thats the reason why your valve amp didnt sounds well. Its very hard and needs lot of knowledge to build a good audio transformer for a valve amp.

Right, we're getting there. You like most valve amps, a few old SS ones, and assume anyone who builds stuff for themselves hasn't a clue what they're doing.
