Tubes Versus Solid State
My customers often ask me if I recommend tube amplifiers or solid-state amplifiers for their new Volti Audio speakers.
From my own personal experience, all types of amplifiers work great with my speakers, but I definitely prefer the sound of tubes.
To my ears, music through tubes has better spatial cues, more space between instruments, more depth to the soundstage, is richer and more vibrant, and simply more natural sounding.
There are reasons why someone would prefer to use a solid-state amplifier in their system, and that’s fine. I’m sure you won’t be disappointed with the sound of your Volti Audio speakers with a Pass Labs or McIntosh, or other high quality SS amplifier.
But if you’re asking me what makes the best sound on my speakers – tubes are the way to go!
