The only thing that puts this diction into reality is reality. You can say your self that you have not been cheated. But you has been. You thought to buy a tube amp and pay its price, but received a really and unquestionable hybrid in a valvular price. No one deny sounds good, but all of we know now, that is a fact, that it hides what it really is, a hybrid amplifier. No doubt. I am sure that all of us when we bought, without exception, thought we bought a valvular amplifier, even you, and that if we had known the truth, that it was hybrid, we would have bought another thing... There are better hybrids amps at better prices That's the reality, it's a scam.
