Hey Russ. I am very curious to hear your thoughts on the Dialogue after some time with it. I have been reading on this integrated and a couple other tube integrateds. I have never had any tube gear and have been wanting to check it out. I saw a couple of the ones I have been looking at mentioned in a previous post.
I want to buy used and only want to spend between 2,000 - 2,750. I am very interested in the Dialogue, any ARC integrateds, Cary and Rogue. I want to try an integrated first. Then if I like tube stuff, then proceed from there.
Whenever you get time, please update this thread.
Off topic: does anybody know of a little reading material that describes the different sonics produced by the different tube types? It seems like most tube guys have a tube model preference. I have zero experience with them and wouldn't mind having a bit of an idea before actually getting one.
