You gave your wife a bar of lead?

Maybe that's what's wrong in the EU headquarters! Yay having a wife!

On a classical music channel they were discussing whether church organs will be illegal, since they are electrical devices because of the fan, and they use up to 50% lead in the pipes.

Wouldn't it be an interesting twist if we were to force manufacturers to be responsible for the return shipping and disposal of a product? I have something very new I would LOVE to return to FORD.

Why does juice come in plastic bottles? I am happy with paper.

Perhaps we might build/buy/consume less junk? And, we wouldn't have to worry about depleted uranium in speakers cabs... Arrhenius again...

I would have been much happier waiting another 5 years for CD's if they kicked up the sample rate a bit (no pun) and put an "overflow" indicator on the "digital remastering" consoles.

That would collapse the entire consumer market

Am I the only person who worries about the power wastage of "my" class "A" amps. I may worry but I still love them.

I worry about it too at times,but I figure what the heck,the rest of the people are using SS,so that compensates!

I notice I don't turn on the tube amps if i'm just listening to the radio or something for "background noise" or for PC games,etc.. That gets SS duty.. No need for the extra wear+tear on the tubes,the extra heat,or the extra power "wasted" to make that heat.
