allegedly the new INFINIUM technology helps your tubes last 20 times longer? idk i always wanted a 6262 but this is throwing me over the edge. who calls bullshit?

I won't doubt that it aids in tube life, but 20 times seems like a stretched number for sales reasons.

i just keep wondering if in order to keep tube life long they're sacrificing something somewhere, but it hasnt been made apparent yet......and i wonder if they fixed those burnout problems before they add new technology, always better to fix the old technology

Not as a guitarist but as a mathematician, because they say 'up to 20 times longer' that means they've probably taken the lowest average possible, or maybe even simply the shortest recorded lifespan of a tube, and then compared that to the longest lasting tube they've ever had with their technology, and the ratio between these two anomalies might well be 1:20, but it's almost certainly not that 'on average' in reality.

hmmmmm, I somewhat want to try one of this, basically it seems like a current controller, if it works great, but i sense that the tone of the amp may be threatened

well im not sure about 20 times, but if the current is properly mananged then it could significantly increase life by not only making sure they are biased (will help a lot) but it says the load amongs them is constantly changed?

i dunno about all that, but it makes sense that if the tubes are being run the right way they WILL last longer. plus, i doubt bugera biased that well from teh factory anyways compared to high end amps like mesa or something.

so in a somewhat budget tube amp its probably a great system as long as its reliable.
#9
I join in the calls of bullshit, but who cares? Nobody is really going to buy an amp just to extend tube life because anyone who plays those massive amps that much probably doesn't blink at buying new tubes.
#10
It probably just keeps the tubes running at a cold bias.. Which will extend the life of the tubes, but you'll be sacrificing tone. A LOT of tone.

My guess... they reversed engineered and copied Orange's DIVO technology.

If you don't see the INFINIUM technology being released in the UK... you know why.

why does this matter? the tubes will die in a giant fireball anyway.
#13
another thing, i would much rather see this technology on SMALL tube amps that people push hard on porpose.

not really any point on a big amp. its almost impossible to overdrive a 120 watt amp these days. the tubes in a 120 watt amp are not even going to be pushed hardly ever.

the tubes in a 2,5,10,15,20 etc watt amp are the ones getting the crap beat out of them.
#14
the tubes won't last any longer because the amps will blow up at the same time they would have without that technology

If they would bias the amp correctly out of the factory, than the original tubes would last 20x longer anyways. Screw this new technology, lets try doing something as simple as biasing an amp correctly.
