    Wow, the concept of that is cool, wonder if it really makes a difference in sound. I have a Carvin Guitar Tube amp and it definately sounds a lot different than the digital amps....

    I guess the next step will be the "punch card" motherboard.... I can hardly wait for that one

    If you read the article it said that it smoothed out the sound but was bound by the cheap codec. More of a marketing ploy than an actual audiophile motherboard

    Tubes can only make a difference to the sound when they're used on the output stage, i.e if they are right before the signal hits the speakers. When its part of a system like that, its just a gimmick, they run the tube on the input signal (which does nothing except add distortion) and then feed it into a solid state amp.

    If you want a tube amp, get a real one : http://www.trutechnology.com/products/copper/c72_at.htm

    BTW, just to clear up any confusion, DONT compare a tube guitar amp to a normal tube amp, they are COMPLETELY different things. The Guitar amp is designed to add even order (warm) harmonic distortion to the guitar signal. You dont want that in an amp thats REPRODUCING music and not CREATING it, because its adding something to the signal that isnt there in the first place
