Interestingly, TdP has said on many occasions that there's no magic to electronics, he can make a solid state and tube amp sound identical. He was also quite explicit when he criticized my phono stage that the design considerations must be led by fashion, and that's where my design came up short.

Perhaps it's time for a new challenge, a solid-state (or whatever) amp that sounds exactly like the new Carvervicini.

An honest man. As Basil Fawlty says in the one episode, "...we should have him stuffed."
