Here is a guy that knows his stuff and describes it in simple English. The last time I took electronics was way back in 1972.

a sine wave... is a sine wave... is a sine wave; unless you like one sources doctorization of it over the other.

If that's the case, then "clean tubes" are not clean at all; altering the AC's input signal waveform (maybe to something more pleasing... I'll give you that). But then "clean" would be opposite of the word you'd used to describe what your ears hear.

Thing is that in order to drive a speaker system tubes need an output transformer, even if a cathode follower, and such transformer has to be bifilar wound for max effectiveness of the sharp/square edges of some music.....there are all sorts of krazy amps being built, even today, and most of the vacuum tubes are made in Russia/eastern Europe.....
