I saw this the other night while watching the boob tube. Just thought I'd take the time to share.

In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.

Cool video, a true art form! Did you see the size of the those tubes in the beginning? :shock: :shock: It sure seems like the price of tubes should be a lot more then they are considering the process, also, I didn't see any tiny Asian hands doing any of the work! :lol: :lol:
