...Tube amps? I don't know much about how you compare them, but I know that guitar amps with tubes sound pretty damn amazing. After all, there is a reason why Fender has kept alive the Reverb series.
As for something non-related, I am planning on eventually getting speakers for my computer to replace my used JBL Creature II's. At the moment, I'm looking at the Klipschj ProMedia 2.1 system, but if you have any better suggestions, that would be nice. Oh, and if it also helps, I have a dedicated sound card; specifically, the one that comes with the ASUS ROG Rampage II Extreme motherboard as a separate PCI attachment, the SoundFX.
What are you going to use them for and what kind of distance? Room filling sound is different to nearfield use.
Yes, but I'm going to sleep anyway.
