    I though this was kind of an interesting idea when I saw it...the AOpen AX4B-533 has onboard 2 channel "Vacuum Tube" Sound.
    It looks like you have to give up 2 or 3 PCI slots to get it.
    I've read vacuum tubes are supposed to produce superior sound quality - but I can't see paying extra for something like this.

    The board has been out since about the middle of last year I think. It has appearantly gotten rave reviews from audiophiles since then. I suppose that if you're into your music enough, it is the way to go.

    Yes it has been out for some time now and I rememeber havin' to wait for the valves in the old radios to warm up first before any sound came along (I wonder if AOpen's valves are as warm as those old suckers were).
