The Audion is among the more analytic amps that I’ve ever heard.

They are capable of reproducing details like and more than any valuable preamp, adding a strong characterization to the system in which they are included. If you were looking for electronics that sound magnificent in detail and timbrical accuracy capable of not lapsing into the coldness of an x-raying sound, and electronics fast enough to reproduce any dynamic excursion, would you accept the fact that it could make a mediocre or bad recording sounds not “acceptable” anymore ? I would.
