Anderton Posted December 11, 2000 Share Posted December 11, 2000 This is a spinoff from the "is tape dead?" topic. My concern is this: regardless of whether you like or dislike tubes, the handwriting is on the wall. The market that consists of tube-loving audiophiles is not enough to sustain production. Right now we're limited to low-quality tubes coming from China et al...look at a company like Groove Tubes, and how many tubes they have to sift through to get matched pairs. Soon, there will be no more tubes being made. What happens then? Will some company make tubes for an outrageous price, because that's what they'll HAVE to charge? Or by that time, will Marcus and the guys at Line 6 have figured out a way to not only emulate tubes, but go beyond? One tip: invest in NOS tubes instead of gold or the stock market!!
