Re: interesting read on THD and tube circuits
Douglas Self doesn't suggest that tubes per se are a "pain in the ass" (not his words ;) ), what he's saying (or at least trying to say*) is that the hype and horrible overprices of some tube-amps are a real PIA.  
*I have had some chats with him (namedropping, eh?), and he's a very reasonable guy, and he can take an argument, and he has changed his mind when somebody has proved him wrong.  
Kindest regard from Bernt with the Dynaco SCA-35 (all tube...)
