Default 21st century tube? Non-Vacuum

What do you guys think if this idea?

Tone Grinder Pre-Amp tube replacements.

I've never seen it before.

It's not a vacuum tube, so it's solid state. Either that or alien technology.

Why would a tube freak put SS in instead of a tube?

Why would somebody who's prepared to have SS want it in a tube amp?

Let's club together and buy one and break it open.

Seems to me all you actually end up with is a SS pre-amp and tube output section, Like that has never been tried MANY times LOL

I am all for good reliable stuff, but some things can not or should not be replaced.
