Hi guys I'm currently alternating between using a K701 and DT 990 and was just wondering what does a tubey sound or solid state sound really mean? I have a Crossroads Edge Amp and it improves my music slightly by making it cleaner and adds on to the clarity.
From what I've read on the forums, if I were to get a tube amp, say the Little Dot MKIII, the sound signature would be warmer while if I were to get a solid state amp, the sound would be more neutral and clearer. What exactly does this mean? Pardon me for being noob but does a warmer sound signature mean the vocals are "thicker" in a sense and that the highs are more rolled off? I'm strongly considering buying a tube amp but wondering whether it would be worth the money. As long as the music sounds good I'm not a really strong believer of neutrality; a little colouration is fine with me. I'm assuming colouration means the vocals sound smoother ( eg female vocals become huskier and thicker? )
