Well, I haven't seen any unexpected turn of events in a long time. I'm hoping that some underdog team suddenly comes up and surprises the heck out of everyone else.
I know where this is going, and I will not comment on questions such as this.End of discussion.
I'm not charging anyone for advice, it's their choice if they want to take it.
So I should care about what "most" listeners think rather than caring about objective facts?Not interested.And as a musician you'd want your listeners to listen to the amp than you. What a joke.
 As I said, unless intended as an 'audio effect'.Musicians may not care if it sounds clean, but then I want to listen to the musician, not the amp. Hence the need for a transparent setup.
There are better, remastered copies available for old recordings. Unless one is going for nostalgia, well then there's no alternative.Distortion *is* bad unless explicitly intended as an audio effect, and there's no reason to add more than is already there.
No one dismissed tube amps. I merely said its a matter of preference, but in scientific and technological terms SS is better.If you want to hear distorted sound be my guest, but remember that not everyone has old recordings and not everyone has that kind of money to spend.If someone just wants a good amp that performs well and is good value for money, tubes don't even meet the criteria.That's why I'll never recommend a tube amp to anyone.
 I don't see why the best possible reproduction can't be enjoyable. Just because some recordings are poor doesn't mean amps should be designed to hide those flaws.What if you're playing a modern recording? Would you use a separate amp for each case? It would be similar to saying that we shouldn't make HD/4K screens anymore because VHS has a terrible resolution and quality, and that older movies weren't recorded on 4K. There are ways in both software and hardware to make...
You'll be surprised by the variety of applications amplifiers have.Audio is just a portion of that whole pie. A number of devices wouldn't even exist without solid state amps; the cost, reliability and form factor of solid state makes that possible.I'm skeptical with regards to the blind testing statement as well, but it's due to the fact that a good tube amp will very likely have lower specs than a good solid state amp, and at best can match them.Another theme I could...
The first race will reveal everything.
