Only if they are level matched to the same height.

So now we're back to poorly produced overly compressed comics.

Don't forget to level match the tube length too.  :evil:  It will give you that extra resolution.  That uneven tube legth will mess with the balance and cause a phase delay in the clock cycle which will add too much current to the capacitors, and thus create the total harmonic distortions.

 

SilverEars tip of the day.

You're welcome, and enjoy.

I really don't want to see their tubes... but they keep shooting pictures of them with their cellphones and posting the pics on the internet!

Perhaps they're running for mayor of New York?

This is a schematic drawing of the format and resolution of the data on the digital medium. It is not, what the DAC produces.

 

The DAC reconstructs the data into the black curve and according to the Nyquist theorem, with a good DAC, this is a perfect reconstruction.

 

I do favour tube amps myself, but digitally stored music, well mastered combined with a good DAC, can sound great. This drawing suggests that you get to listen to a step function. This is wrong of course.

I get the feeling Red knows this and we've all been trolled by the very best...pages of jibberish from a single post...I have more to learn with the subtle art of trolling.

Or maybe he believes it, which may be worse than trolling.:D He's awfully quiet.

Red may know this, but some answers suggest not everybody gets that it is a very rough schematic of digital.

This is what you show, when you want to ridicule digital for an audience, that takes things literally - I agree.

Doesn't matter whether he believes it or not, we gave the intended reaction, we got trolled hard guys.  :(

Good to hear, because that would have been really cruel. And embarrassing.

I bet that tube has a bigger sound stage than most other tubes.
