No. Linear Tube Audio amps offer 100% tube-based amplification.
The confusion lies in some of the language often used to describe our amps.
Phrases like, “tube tone + solid state detail” and “all the magic of tubes and all the benefits of solid state.” Or, our favorite, as one of our customers once said: “the gap between the best of what solid state amplification has to offer and the best of what tube amplification has to offer just got blown up.”
While all these phrases are true, due to the unique nature of our ZOTL technology, we can see how people could get confused.
