Input amp – For boosting input audio (more loud is input signal more saturation, transient softening and analog warmth is generated, but be careful because too loud input can generate also little distortion same like in real studio vacuum tube devices) If one could devise a solid-state amp that had soft clipping along with waveform duty-cycle modulation, Murphy contends, the amp would look substantially like a tube amp in the lab and would sound much like a tube amp in the listening room-down to the subtle effects of the time-varying even harmonics. In current models, Audio Research attempts to use tubes which are either in active ongoing production, or available in large quantities at reasonable cost.
