    And design is often pretty poor. There's lot's of kit based stuff online that's not
    going to sound bad or burn the house down.

    The Chinese made tubes (at least the generic ones) tend to be less than terrific, but that falls under "complete [email protected] parts" methinks.

    If this is a reference to the 3S4 discussion elsewhere -- that tube, and the preamp design employing them, is as 'murrican as chop suey (i.e., very 'murrican). :)
