Why do tubes amps (valves) sound better?
Tube amplifiers sound better because of the euphonic distortions they add to the music; as well as plenty of other reasons. These are subtle effects most audible to musicians and very dedicated music lovers; casual listeners (people who “listen” with their eyes open while doing something else) usually won’t notice; but sometimes the difference is so obvious that people’s wives will comment that “wow; that sounds much better” when people use tube amps at home.
Tube amplifiers measure poorly in the lab specifically because of these added distortions, but these distortions are often a part of what make them sound better. Even today with an all-digital infrastructure from recording studio to the home; professional studio microphones have for decades; used tube pre-amplifiers inside the microphones themselves. Today their outputs are fed to tube pre-amplifiers before being digitised for recording; mixing and distribution. Most music lovers use tubes simply because they make the music we all listen to sound better; smoother; warmer and cleaner!
