Ok all this talk about tube amps is getting my credit card fingers itchy again (and Xmas bonus season is right around the corner). My main headphone system is a MicroMega transport attached to a CAL alpha DAC. I use a cosmic/Base-station-1 ss amp. Since the Alpha output stage uses tubes, my question is: is the output of this DAC similar to the sound of the tubed amps under discussion in this section (Earmax pro, MG Head, Microzotl, etc.) and would using one of these amps with the Alpha DAC be "tube overkill"? Anyone heard both this DAC and any of the tube amps?
