BUT can I ask you which tubes did you adopted on the Air Tight? Did you adopted the feedback? ...
I just used the tubes that came with the Air Tight ATM300 from the dealer, which included a matched pair of Western Electric 300Bs.
It is interesting for me, but my listening mood has a lot to do with the presentation I want. If I have had a hard day of work and traveling, I just want to be passive and have the music wash over me and soothe me - that is the time for the RWA Signature 30.2. Other times, I am well rested and want to be blown away - that is the time for the First Watt F1 (driven by a tube preamplifier). I am sure that many may feel this is a ridiculous extravagance, having an amplifier for two different modes of listening but it works for me.
I loved the Air Tight ATM300, and if I was to choose only one
amplifier to drive my K1000s, it most certainly would be the one. Again, thank you for inspiring me to give it an audition.
