Love LOVE the parallel on the Serpent. Love it. Did I say I love it? Love the AS GSSL too. But for comps, if they have wet/dry, that REALLY, REALLY makes my hybrid approach better. Extra bonus points for any comp or EQ with Wet/Dry blend.
Also, for transformer vibe, I'll often follow either my AS or Serpent with a pair of MrFocus's. API or Neve Line Cards / Xfmr's or both. With the ability to drive them harder - or not - and then blend in. Fantastic. For me, way better than just having a transformer balanced output. Don't need me no steenkin' transformer outs on my SSL's...
Who needs wet / dry blend? That’s one of the things that big old D&R was for.😁
Ha!! Yeah. But I can get better summing ITB. And I'm serious. I need to do the "blending" in the analog world though before coming back in. And without the 120 input wet / dry automated blending device (D&R), I do appreciate outboard with parallel processing!!!

I’ve never had a good experience with Warm and didn’t keep any of their boxes. They all had poor build quality qc, poor power supplies, and high noise floors. Typical Chi-fi. Audioscape I’ve never used but it’s made in the USA so it can’t be worse unless it blows up or melts. You can’t easily get those knockoff Chinese parts here and American manufacturers never cheap out on the power supplies as much as Made in China budget gear does hahaha.
