    Default Funny Picture

    I thought this was funny. This tube DAC has a knob where you can adjust for 'tubeyness'.

    Not unlike PAIA's "tubehead" - my guess is they reduce the plate voltage on the output stage to increase the distortion.

    On the other hand: Unfortunately, it's just this kind of stuff that leads folks to believe "tubes sound good because of the good-sounding distortion that they produce" :-(

    I liked this statement even better than the "tubyness" knob:
    Perhaps a pair of U7's [sic] will last a lifetime in this circuit - time will tell.
    ... ain't it the truth! ;-)
    all the best,
