Valves - waste of time and contribute to global warming!
« on: April 24, 2015, 01:13:19 PM »
It's time we all moved away from our obsession with this technology.

Valves have long since been superceded by solid state technology in all other walks of life* - let's catch up with the 21st Century.

* apart from Hifi enthusiasts for some reason - go digital people!  Ditch the vinyl too.

Valves amps are:

Heavier
Less reliable
More Expensive
Less Energy Efficient
Slow to warm up

Solid state kit has none of these drawbacks.  Enough is enough.
I'm back - am I the same person or just a clone of myself?

All the time we have people like Award Session doing their thing and SO conclusively, I'd struggle to argue with your points David. ;)

If you lend someone ?20 and never see that person again, it was probably well worth it.
