    Portfolio Diversification, Tubes VS Solid State

    I have both tube and solid state and agree with several here that diversity is good. I use solid state for my CF3's as it appears that they like a lot of power and did not sound great at 30 tube watts. Grand Funk Railroad sounds awesome on them. On the other hand I use tubes on my Chorus II's and a they produce a 3D soundstage I have not gotten with solid state yet. I typically start listening to tubes at lower volumes and then finish the night with solid state. i must admit I find tubes to be a lot of fun and picked up a 1929 Majestic radio recently and can,t wait to get it going. The real problem here is WAF as it is hard not to get addicted to either!

    Are "audiophile grade" fuses the key to "sonic nirvana?"

    Wow and treated with a Tesla coil. I think I will skip the fuses and get the coil instead to treat my whole system- a lot more fun to be had.

    I would love to have those but a little too far for me - would also have to check on the WAF as well. Looking forward to going on the Pilgrimage and hearing Jubilees.

    Welcome Waxburger, I too lurked around here except for me it was years. I have learned much and most people are very easy going.

    My Mac amps make unicorns and rainbows come out of my Chorus II's - very magical. Sometimes a little tube rolling is required.

    I use a penny but you need an old copper one. On the serious side I must admit this is the last thing I would think of but would be interested if someone had some facts.
