    Compressed Audio

    Isn't it rather silly to go for a high end amp and then feed it with compressed audio from an iPod. Any advantages of using tubs would be lost.

    Re: compressed audio

    Not really. A good amp can make even compressed audio sound really good.

    As advantages using tubes, in my opinion, tubes are more appropriate for making sound such as in instrument amps. Playing any recorded music through a tube amp is what I find silly.

    xbox one billion?!

    if every xbox 360 broke at once, and all needed replacement at $500 each, it would not even be a billion dollars. Not sure where feather got the numbers. I think it's a high price to pay, but from a business perspective, it might be where the future of profit lies.
