I've been misunderstood. I have never said nor thought that the statement would "sound like" the Vahlalla nor "like" te Lyr.
In fact it seems its not going to be the "balanced version" of any other amp.
But it seems that the statement will be the tube version of the mid-tier balanced SS amp.
Sorry for quoting myself
Or at least, this is what Jason wants us and his competitors to think.
Tube stuff doesn't need to sound tubey. (As for example, certain pro tube preamps sound just OMG, very far from tube hi-fi stuff)
I was just guessing about how it would compare only to to its SS mate. Will it be a tubey sister or its MOTHER...?
That's the question. It depends on the "tube sound" which will be taken as reference, at least, to my ears.
