We had a session last night (Horlicks hour) amp in 'Triode mode', choosing only accustic music, stuff like Eva Cassidy, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Miserere, it was a bit late and I was tierd . . . but I herad enough to want to investigate further today, the 'destructions' get quite excited about the amps abilities in triode mode.
Ah well, had a listen, triodes are not my cup of tea, the base is not good, midrange is very delicate and engaging as is the higher frequancies, a bit limiting on music choice . . . stick with ulteralinear mode.
I dont know anyone interested in hifi either, pity there are not hifi clubs, like there are fishing clubs, photo clubs, model flying clubs . . . all of which I do or have belonged to, but a hifi club, no such thing.
Start your own. I had a pretty successfull Vinyl listening night with friends over the weekend. I was surprised at how many people had records when they don't own a record player. Six or seven people were keen on doing regular record based socials and a couple are now looking into getting thier own systems. And that's just my mates. So I'd say start a club, why not?
