Yes, the idea is to add triode distortion to music. Deliberately adding distortion seems daft to me, but then I am not an 'audiophile'.

Well this is kind of a fairy tale for audiophiles:

You get the sound of a SET, but you get much more output power (say 25W iso 2.5W), and you pay only $150 for all the components.

Too good to be true? That drives me to experiment with it.

Fine if you want SET sound rather than mere reproduction.

True. So it delivers SET levels of distortion, but not SET levels of lumpy frequency response.

Don't argue with fools nor charlatans; people don't see the difference. ;-)

Unfortunately nobody yet achieved absence of distortions adding more distortions, despite of al that snake-oil-perpetuum-mobile-tales. ;-)
