| Sophia Electric Classic 300B tubes
Received date: May 25, 2016
My initial response is that the Classic 300B tubes have a quality that I find very appealing but I have only listened to some small ensemble and acoustic recordings. No Mahler, Shostakovich or Tchaikovsky yet. With my limited listening I have been struck by how human performances sound and feel. I hear not only all the things important to audiophiles like soundstage, tonal balance, timing, pace, etc. but I am aware of human beings creating music. This was most striking when I played the cd of Grieg songs sung by Anne Sophie von Otter. I not only heard her voice beautifully rendered but I could sense her human presence in the room with me. Her voice was more human than I have ever heard before.
