If vacuum is clean, why do they make vacuum cleaners? Answer me that!
The same reason that they make hot-water-heaters. It's a marketing
demonstration that shows that good sales ability beats a product name every
time. Getting people to buy something they obviously don't need.
Yes but these heaters are run on 6.3V which is the squareroot of 39.69
and therefor obviously evil.
That's a rumor mindlessly passed thru the generations. If you check, you'll
see that they actually run on 6.48V which is the square root of 42, the
Smart people move to a warm climate.
That's what I thought, then I moved to houston. Smart people live anywhere
When the tubes light the house on fire, a lot of wood gets burned.
Very few house burn coal for heat any more. Coal burning is a dirty
nasty way to make power much like tubes are a dirty nasty way to make
Right, we now burn coal on a much more massive scale. We use it to
inefficiently generate electricity from heat, then transport it over long
distances while losing a large percentage to resistive/emissive losses.
This is usually done on poles cleverly placed so as to be directly in the
path of wayward automobiles, but then power company procedures are another
subject themselves. Then, what's left of the electricity is used to power a
heat pump and further reduce efficiency to a record low since the dawn of
heat generation. It's called progress.
The same is true of transistors. If you lived in a place that was
about 5 degrees K, you'd have to heat the transistors in your radio.
We all live in a warmer climate than that, even the foolish ones who
live in the north.
But what would you heat them with?
Tubes cause puppies to die.
Tubes should not be taken orally or rectally.
Those holes let the good sound pass through without effort. Tubes
contain magnetic materials. These lead to distortion.
Which is precisely what you want when you're an axe grinder.
They suffocate the sound.
No, they provide space for the sound. How much head-room could possibly be
built into a to-92? It must be like passing a kidney stone the size of a
grape. Imagine the excruciating effect on the sound. Tubes provide
unprecidented clarity too, have you tried looking thru a transistor lately?
How could sound pass thru something like that and not come out all muddy? I
