Tuesday, March 7, 2023: The magic lamps
Valves vs. transistors: myth or reality? Are the fascinating "magic lamps" still able to deliver dreams, or have the latest transistor devices come to outclass them? Just as with vinyl, valves are also experiencing a new springtime. But is their performance really superior or is it just one of many temporary fads? We will make some considerations, including technical ones, to dissect the problem in all its aspects, trying to draw some conclusions, certainly not depriving ourselves of some excellent listening. Giancarlo Valletta (JBL marketing director) and Giulio Salvioni (industry journalist) will deliver the lecture.
