There is no written rule you have to use all of one or the other. Many kits (like Consonance) use both topologies and they sound fine.

Wardsweb: Agreed. Analyze each circuit node for what kind of operating conditions it wants (constant impedance, low capacitance, shielding etc.), and give it a suitable environment.

I primarily rely on four-layer pcb construction (including ground and power planes), but add special structures (isolated stand-offs, p2p, floating isolated pads etc.) wherever appropriate.

Default Whichever you like

I use PCBs and P2P. They both have their advantages. PCBs can be good for RIAA stages because a double-sided PCB allows a ground plane. In the end, my choice is usually enforced by the components I want to use - some are designed for PCBs, others for P2P.

Downside for PCBs is the poorer dielectric (FR4 vs air).

What's far more important is careful layout...
