I've never called the Gilmore amps clinical (not that I remember at least
) but the KGSS can be a bit sterile in stock form. There is a certain lack of the harmonic richness you get from a good tubeamp but I'd still take it over the lush mess of the likes of Cary. The Blue Hawaii is much better even with new production SED tubes let alone Mullards so never clinical.
