I received AES's catalogette today and was somewhat dismayed to find the
In regards "Sunrise Tubes" version of the 12AX7
" The larger bottle gives this tube a ful rich tone".
Later the astute reader will learn that the "100% larger than typical
metallized film capacitors... provide a dramatic improvement in clarity
focus and dynamics". Never mind my boatanchors, my wife will order some for
*me* , since the "benefits will be immediately discernable". Similar caps
in the tweeter circuit (the boatanchors, not mine) will "reveal additional
detail and nuance".
While I realize marketing is king, it's sad to see the integrity decline of
this once respectable outfit .
