Tubes (not Nets) make a comeback

Stereo system for MP3 players


Contrary to popular belief, tubes are alive and well in high technology--just not on the Internet(s).

A Japanese company called Rockridgessound is using them in a new vacuum tube stereo system, which has a built-in docking station for the iPod and presumably other MP3 players. The VTS-384, as it is affectionately known, uses three high-quality EL84 vacuum tubes for a "warm and clear" sound, according to Fareastgizmos. It also goes for more than $600--proving that retro doesn't necessarily mean cheap.
