This is a matter of preference, I prefer clean, an amp that makes no changes to the sound. Perhaps you should first decide, Tubes or Solid State and then move onto finding the amp you want. Personally I think the Asgard 2 is just fine and you might put the savings towards some more gear. Perhaps a little reflection as to what motivates your process for choosing gear.
I'm not sure about the future, but I want something that will be more future proof than the A2.
Im not sure about the kind of amp I want, Ive never used a SS amp, and my little dot Mk3 isnt really good enough of an amp to be a deciding factor, when it comes to deciding between SS and tubes.
I do know, tho, that tubes are more annoying to me.
I'm not sure as to what sound I want. I want it to be fun to listen to, doesnt matter if its colored or not.
If the difference is HUGE between the sound signature of SS vs. Tubes, im favor of the tubes, then I assume I'de like a tube amp.
