Thanks for the reply Scott, good to have you here. You got great reviews in tape op. I was wondering if you could comment on some of the design challenges, hurdles, or reasons, that keep most tube based gear, particularly (non hybrid) at the higher end of the price spectrum, even with many of the designs their based on relatively well known vintage/classic topology? Or maybe comment on some things that are omitted or compromised in some of the entry or mid level tube offerings? This is in no way a complaint or anything negative, I’m just wondering about the reasoning behind it is. My guess would be QC, and the inherent danger of working w tube voltages, and pure labor? I’ve spent many hours tracking just about anything with the Manley dual mono, and found the summit tla-100 compressor to be just right for certain things that need some silky darkening. I’ve never heard a thin sounding tube unit, but beyond that, they seem to have a large range of sonic qualities.
