Ta-20 is very picky about tubes. With the right tubes, it is definitely warmer. TA-20 is laid back type of sound, which allows you to listen to the music through the longer session. Conversely, P20 slaps music on your face, completely fatiging after a while ( you have already had this amp, you...
Everyon can believe in anything. But i have not seen any braveheart saying there is no difference in sonic between solid-state and tube amps. This is just ignorance, blindness, denialism. Just a quick example; battlehead crack vs thx 789.
So all top tier tube amps suck your money for nothing. Do you really think this? Have you ever heard any popular tube amp ? Do you call all-tube amp buyers as gullible guys paying more than a thousand bucks for worse than any sinad champ under 100 -150 usd?

TA- 20 has two drawbacks, and need them to be done.

Sound stage wise: Ta-20 byfar
Blacker background: Ta-20
Bass: P20 by far

Driving power: Tier ( both are powerful enough for almost all, but ta -20 at...

When seen the measurements of Bifrost 2, you would think how noisy it is. In fact, there is no noise at all. Indeed it provides a bit euphonic sound, which makes me think a lot to buy it. I have never tried Yggy.
If i were in US, BF2 would be my DAC. I think Schitt should care of European...
I suspect many users of HeadFi to actually be seller. They are just escalating some unrealities regarding products. This brought me to chose a well-measured D/S Dac. Btw, My D70s will be knocking on the door within two days.
