Default Hybrid situation

I am looking into a small 30 watt hybrid integrated. Tube preamp with mosfet output.

I saw some glowing reviews concerning this small amp. Its to be used for desktop with high end components. One person who is technically inclined ... opened it up and found the following.

I got this amp before really checking out what's inside. Oh, jeeze. Yes, the pre-amp section is a 12ax7, which is nice I guess. But the output stage is just a power op-amp, basically the last thing that you would want to use in audio! (Unless of course you're trying to build a cheap amp.)

Usually, when a manufacturer says an amp is "hybrid," they typically mean a tube driving a discrete output stage (usually push-pull FETs). Not a freakin' pop-amp!
The amp has a great rep among certain audiophiles. Does what this person found have to mean bad sound???

Appreciate any help in understanding what is going on.

Thanks, Gene

Just found this also...

The Jolida JD301RC ($425) is a 30-watt-per-channel integrated stereo amplifier. It's a "hybrid" design that uses a pair of vacuum tubes (12AX7) in its preamplifier section, and National Semiconductor MOSFET transistors in its power amp stage.
