In regards to that last post, I was just reminded that I have an old Realistic receiver in the living room – above my 19″ TV – that is currently running on tubes. I mean, yeah. That’s cool for the tube thing. But really…how many watts am I burning on them? They do glow afterall, and it’s not with that new-fangled Sexy Blue Light technology (SBL). And the contacts are all dusty now, so don’t hate me for wanting to upgrade that too!
