You know... I never considered the fact that many ss devices are colored. I'm a dummy, and you are totally right.
It's just that the goal of tube gear is usually to add some color and SS is usually to be neutral.. But, yes, that is definitely not always the case!
That's not the goal of tube gear actually. Another generalization that I'm not a fan of.
I've gone SS now and the one thing I can definitely say is that life seems a bit easier without having to worry about tubes going bad, warming up my gear before listening, etc... So I guess there's advantages on both side.
