Review : AOpen AX4B-533 Tube

Posted on Sunday, September 15 2002 @ 04:58:22 CEST by

Hardware-test has reviewed AOpen's AX4B-533 Tube motherboard,
special about this motherboard is his tube :
The mainboard has been equipped with a 100+ year old technology; A vacuum tube, which should give a much warmer and fuller sound experience. Whether or not the tube actually does this have been debated for a long time amongst sound fanatics (like Intel vs. AMD fanatics). However it has never actually been proven one way or the other. Personally I have never heard sound produced with a vacuum tube so I am unable to argument one way or the other. Hopefully, by the end of this end, I should have an opinion on the subject.

The tube has an expected lifespan of roughly 4000-6000 hours. This is a relatively long lifespan for the tube, but you’d still have to go in and change it.
