What is this? lol I have heard that some tube amps have this but it doenst make sense because it says they are all tube :s Also the amp im looking at says its "tube rectifier emulation" does this mean its a tube rectifier? Or a solid state one that sounds like a tube one. Sorry if i sound like a total noob lol.
Thanks in advance for the help.

I heard that the solid state rectrifier have to be replaced when you change the tubes or something like that. Hope its not true :S

Rectifiers transform the AC to DC, which is needed for the tubes.
Most modern tube amps have solid state rectifiers because they are more efficient, less noise on the current etc.
No sound signal passes through them so they have a very minor impact on the sound.
Solid state rectifiers require an amp tube to be put in standby for a few minutes before playing. Tube rectifiers don't require this.
Also tube rectifiers respond less quickly to changing power demands, so you have less attack. Some types of music require tube rectifiers.

Not at all. I doubt you can even easily replace them without cutting half your circuit board in 2
