Do amplifiers affect sound quality?
The speakers and the audio source itself have a much bigger impact on sound quality than the amplifier does. An amplifier can increase the maximum volume of your sound device and can boost the audio signal to make it louder. But sound quality depends on how the audio signal is first being generated.

The sonic difference between Class A and AB is mostly because the Class A amps usually have better power supplies and regulation, and are also better built (they have to, as they run very hot).

Are vacuum tube amplifiers better?
Tube amplifiers sound better because of the euphonic distortions they add to the music, as well as plenty of other reasons I’ll cover below. We use tubes simply because they make the music we create sound better: smoother, warmer and cleaner. Ditto for guitar amplifiers used in creating music.
How do I choose the right amp?
Generally you should pick an amplifier that can deliver power equal to twice the speaker’s program/continuous power rating. This means that a speaker with a “nominal impedance” of 8 ohms and a program rating of 350 watts will require an amplifier that can produce 700 watts into an 8 ohm load.
