Real men love tubes?

I'm hoping the NY Times article mentioned recently here indicates a trend for women to become serious audiophiles in increasing numbers. I'm not holding my breath however. For as long as I can remember this has been a male, almost exclusively hetro game, especially on forums and newsgroups.
Which reminds me - I know Stephen M is supposed to be straight but when I laid eyes on his expression in the attached shot I found myself wondering if that grin is one of lust, envy or simple admiration for the technology.

Your mind is in the gutter, Herr Trollie.

But my arse is in the stars Frau ncdrawl.....and if I remember correctly that object is hand made and belongs on a Kronzilla amp made in Hungary. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

I think that look is 'pride.'

The name of the tube is the "Mejias."

Gay or straight, all men appreciate what a well proportioned tube can do. You think a porn star would get very far with a flea watt triode?

I think Sam Tellig tried that and I don't think he got very far either.

Correction - that is a Western Electric 212e and that particular tube belongs to a Komuro 212e amplifier.

Was recently in a Pagossa Springs Hot Tub with a beautiful young women with an accent. After conversing for a while, I asked her name. Svetlana. I didn't even mention my obsession with that name.
