New hybrid amp: Tube preamp, low-watt power tube, solid-state power amp

This packaging approach makes a lot of sense. There are several approaches to the hybrid amp.

For amp-emulating amps, such as Flextone and Johnson Millennium: The real solution these companies should do is, add one more saturation stage: they should add an EL84 power tube and another level control, yielding:
o Preamp distortion and its gain control
o Power tube distortion and its saturation control
o Linear power amp and its level control
