Re: circuitmaker
I think the problem with simulating tubes in spice is that tubes are not easily quantified. Look at all the time and effort the digital modeling amp makers have put into creating a numeric approximation of tube. They ain't even close! I find spice to be pretty reliable for simulating solid state components and opamps. But tubes....I use it as a rough approximation of what's going on, then I've got to build the circuit and find out what's actually happening. Funny thing is that I can usually get closer numbers by doing the calculations manually!
