High-end Class A valve amplifiers will be illegal in USA?

I think that's the EU.

I'm a fan of anything that protects the environment and would support just about anything. But this, if it's correct, is retarded. It has nothing, or very little, to do with the environment. Do hunters still use lead? Are we still living in the 19th century?

Another Edict from EU
 
Don't worry at least the user manual will be understandable

The European Union commissioners have announced that agreement has been reached to adopt English as the preferred language for European communications, rather than German, which was the other possibility. As part of the negotiations, Her Majestys Government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a five-year phased plan for what will be known as EuroEnglish (Euro for short). In the first year, s will be used instead of the soft c. Sertainly, sivil servants will resieve this news with joy. Also, the hard c will be replaced with k. Not only will this klear up konfusion, but typewriters and komputers kan have one less letter. There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year, when the troublesome ph will be replaced with the f. This will make words like fotograf 20 per sent shorter. In the third year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be expekted to reach the stage where more komplikated changes are possible. Governments will enkorage the removal of double letters, which have always ben a deterent to akurate speling. Also, al wil agre that the horible mes of silent es in the languag is disgrasful, and they would go. By the fourth year, peopl will be reseptiv to steps such as replasing th with z, and w with v. During ze fifz year, ze unesesary o kan be dropd from vords kontaining ou, and similiar changes vud of kors be aplid to ozer kombinasyon of leters. After zis fifz yer, ve vil hav a reli sensibl riten styl. Zer vil be no mor trubls or difikultis and evrivun vil find it ezi tu understand ech ozer.

I believe that transistor amplifier that causes auditory fatigue attempt against environment and they would have to be prohibited.
Correct?

...and fishing sinks made of lead, and mercury from mines flowing into water...

Perhaps we should prohibit mining of all metals (other than aluminium) as well, because mining digs out more mercury from the ground inevitably :whazzat:

It's easy to make fun of environmental issues. And nowhere did I say we should stop mining. Putting words in other people's mouths isn't nice.

If you are a hunter and use lead, you evidently don't care about the environment you hunt in. I would call such a man stupid, whoever he is.

But this forum isn't the place for this.

I'm all for saving the planet..but,this seems a little.......silly.
:whazzat:


Oh well,if Class A valve amps become illegal,it's not gonna stop me from building and using them.That's just stupid.
Same with big heavy speaker enclosures.

Tube amps are the *LEAST* of the planet's concerns.

Then you consider 99% of sportsman to be stupid I take it. Or are you under the impression that waterfowl hunting is all there is? Folks are IMNSHO getting just a bit paranoid about lead. The stuff came out of the ground after all. We didn't just produce it out of thin air and introduce it into the environment. A lead bullet just isn't a real concern.

Now non-lead shot for waterfowl... I get that.

Wow. Friday night and you guys are fussing about lead? I just left one bar with my wife and we are off to another. Life is better when you have one, eh?
