Which is better for RECTIFICATION ??

Diodes or Rectifier Valves !!??

For an overall clearer, Hi-Fi-er sound !!

For example, teh Marshall SLP has a diode rectification, a Mesa Dual Rect can have both..........

So which one is better IN YOUR OPINION ?? Diode or tube rectification ??
Tone is all ...... well probably 75%, in your fingers.
The rest depends on your wallet's thickness !!

Keep the faith, baby!!

They're just different. You can't say one's better, it's like saying playing clean is better than playing distorted. If you want a tighter sound, SS might be for you.

The rectifier makes a difference in tone. Tube rectifiers have what's called sag that give a particular tone when the gain is up. It's sort of like a power drain while the tube does it's work, it's desireable for many classic rock and vintage users but can be found all the way through modern rock. SS rectifiers lack that sag, but they give sharp consistent gain all the way through.

To each his own, many new amps come with a switch for both options.
It's a fine line between clever and stupid.
