The cons: takes time to warm up, you'll have to take proper care of your tubes.

Do they sound better/worse than solid state amps? Some say they do, other that they don't.

I say it's a question of expectation and taste.

I couldn't agree more, ''expectation and taste'', and I would add that, system synergy, is also very important.beerchug.gif

Yes you're absolutely right.
Just because one has "the best" headphones, and "the best" amplifier, doesn't mean they'll sound "the best" together. This, of course, goes for the whole chain, from source to ear.
