It may look like a something you'd find in a game of Fallout, but the Coolermaster Musketeer 3 is a tube based sound conditioner. If you are baffled as to what exactly that is, head to the Guru of 3D for a full explanation.
"Did somebody at CoolerMaster loose his mind ? I mean, there's a reason that vacuum tubes were
left in history back in the 50's: they kinda suck. However, they might have lost their minds, but
they ain't crazy. Tubes have been making a bit of a renaissance comeback lately in audio.
Amplifiers using tubes have always been apart of studios, and really, you can't have a rock 'n
roll band without some screaming tube amps for the guitars. I would venture to say that every
song you hear will have a tube somewhere in audio chain.
You see, tubes are really inefficient for audio, requiring lots of voltage, and make a lot of
heat. Heat, as we can all testify, is the enemy."
