Is the nutube preamp, poweramp or both?

If its preamp only then why bother?

It's the poweramp and output stages that make* the unique and desirable tones of a valve amp.

My $0.02 and it's worth every cent.

It's going to have to be a pretty big fluro tube to get to power amp capability. :)

I've got a little Vox combo (VX50BA) which has a nutube in it.
TBH, I'm not sure what difference it really makes...

The combo itself is pretty ok, but its just a practice amp.
