^hey if you don't enjoy the journey, you're just rushing towards death.
Aesthetic feedback is pretty standard for rock-n-roll electric guitar. Also, I have/enjoy a tube amp, I find it reveals micro details very well while also being less fatiguing to listen to for long periods of time. Of course, I have my E12 too, which cost almost half as much yet has it's own strengths, and I haven't gotten rid of it yet because it compliments my tube amp pretty well.
When I die, I'm taking along an HD80000 and a MegaWatt Class AB Open Loop Tube Amp and an E12000 to compliment it. And I'll have enough time to listen to all the music I want.
