In 1947 Bell Labs invented the transistor. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.
I remember in the 50's and 60's people were throwing out their vacuum tube powered stereos because the transistor had arrived.
Today those old tubes are worth a fortune. Turns out they sounded much better playing records than those new transistor amplifiers.
@mydogisahusky I have an old "shitty" tube guitar amp that sounds like orgasmic noise shredding your eardrums so yea I know a thing or two about that 😬😬😬
for a home stereo it's better to reproduce accurately as possible and give user control over creating any "warm tone" with an EQ. not that i wouldn't take a valve amp setup over any cheap 80s compact stereo
@j3t because computers were a mistake
@lynnesbian thank you! I really try 😬
Octodon is a nice general purpose instance.
