Default New ebay record!

A new record for the most expensive set of tubes on ebay

http://cgi.ebay.com/Western-Electric...d=p3286.c0.m14

Yes, $19,900.

For that price they better have four tires and a steering wheel

In the early days the tube manufacturers inverted the half-finished tubes and dribbled really high quality sound into them before they were sealed up. It was the best sound ever contained in a tube. That e-bay price is cheap, 'cos tubes that good are worth millions.

Default a happy symbiotic occurence gordy!

since recently the Gods have been making seriously under-powered brains for audiophools. The people these brains are fitted to can now be turned upside down and all the money in thier pockets falls out to pay for very ordinary items that have huge hype attached to them.

Well given that he's used a tube checker and they are "Prefect"...

I'm sorry, mis-spellings in descriptions relating to condition set off my alarm bells.

It's like anyone claiming the condition of vinyl as "minty".
