using an analog solid state or FET power amp design? Who would you say is very close? I'm sitting here anxiously waiting for this Mackie amp to ship so I can finally try it - it's perplexing that this amp got NO press at all at NAMM, and apart from some (mostly negative) fist impressions from fellow TGPers, it pretty much flew under the radar. Mackie claims it can replicate a tube power section by 1) tweaking the switchmode power supply to make it behave "imperfectly" - I suppose, like a tube rectifier, and 2) with discrete FET power amp design. Is this a new way of thinking, or has this been tried before? Just trying to get some of your experiences - have you pretty much written off any of these manufacturers chasing the "Tube feel" carrot with a solid state design? Let's leave the software emulation (Fractal et al.) out of this particular discussion.
