I have encountered the best sound quality ever from a tiny vacuum tube power amp (single ended triode) driving a single driver crossoverless wide-banner loudspeaker. The only limitation: no wall & floor shaking bass and limited overall SPLs – but perfect for near-field listening.
in my opinion hybrids make no sense. One or the other from the source components to the speakers.
Where do tubes sound best?
Easy! In the recording studio when the musicians want to create a specific sound.
Musicians use tubes in a totally different way than home audio does. Tubes are more linear than transistors, they are not distortion generators unless you use them like musicians do.
