What function do the tubes perform? Are they just cathode followers, like they are in the following video?

I conjecture they stuck in the tubes for cosmetic reasons, to impress clients who have no clue about electrical engineering, but like shiny objects. Am I wrong? :)

Good Morning Art, thank you for the passion that you transmit while doing your job. I don't understand how come that a converter that you find as the most capable DAC of your experience (Canever review) ends up in the class B rating. Please let us know. Kind regards. Stefano
