You got a chuckle out of me. You have the Glass, so the Crimson is relegated to TV and gaming. Kind of like using the F-40 to go get the mail because you have a McLaren for "real" driving, lol. I understand. I find I like what tubes add to the sound, but I find tubes fiddly. The Crimson is a nice compromise (one tube, designed to be left alone), and of course the Carbon dispenses with tubes completely..... Still, the glass does sound wonderful.
