Yeah, I just don't always hear that tube sound in my gear. I love tube gear because they give out a bigger voltage swing which is needed for high impedance headphones. Now granted some tubes do have a much warmer sound, such as the RCA 6AS7, it's just not that pronounced to my ears. My views have changed on tubes and they jsut don't color the sound as much as people claim. Now some tubes do have such an effect such as my Bugle Boys and my Sylvania 6080. Both of those are warm sounding with softer treble.
Also I think you'll like the V200 a lot. It surely has a more lush sound with the smooth treble, just likes what tubes have.
I just popped in some Bugle Boy 6DJ8 in my CSP2 as power tubes with a Phillips 7Dj8 mini watt so the sound is a different pace but I am enjoying the bugle boys the pair I bought the screen on the tubes is 100 percent new so its cool using 1965 tubes and changing the sound up. One thing I will be interested in is hearing the V200 but in my experience a SS amp is solid state and tube amps are tube amps. I have heard some warmer solid state amps using mosfetts in the past but it was never tube sounding IMO. I will give it a whirl and look forward to the V200.
