so im a physics major in my second year. So being a physics major I have a rather deep appreciation for the physics behind a vacuum tube. So me and my buddy have this idea; we want to take the high def signal from a s/pdif port and use a 3 channel tube amp to amplify the signal. Any one else think this is a good idea? or has it been done already, I've looked a little bit but haven't found any thing that does this. Has this been done/ is it a good idea?
my gear:
Jackson Roads Pro
Gibson Explorer Pro
Fender American P-bass
Squire P-bass
Fender rumble 300 bass amp
Peavey 6505 head
Marshall special edition red cab

you'll have to convert to analogue first.

I'd have thought this would be counter productive.

Valve amplification adds "warmth" and "colour" to a sound. While this may be wanted in some applications like guitar and bass amps, when working with high-fi sound, you want it to be amplified so it is as close as possible to the original sound, only louder.

Just dont think it would work, that's all. Sure, you'll get a sound if you do it correctly, but it'd be a fantastic waste of money/time IMHO.

how do those marshall handles compare tonewise to, say, mesa handles?
