Makes more sense now. I can actually hear the difference between MP3 and WAV on my crappy laptop though, even with tiny speakers (if they are actually speakers), with the volume way down. I think it's an allergic reaction or something I have toward low end audio. If I switch between the sam esong in MP3 or WAV, it's like the difference between B&W TV and a 3D LCD panel for me. Seriously, it just comes alive like someone pulled a heavy blanket off the speaker.
As for tuba amps, they didn't really take off because tuba's were found loud enough as it was, I think it was just a tuba diva trying to make himself stand out of the orchestra a bit more.
The VACUUM tuba amps were created by a lazy guy who figured he'd do half the work if he could suck as well as blow (HEY, stop it, I'm talking about a TUBA here!!!).
Typos, lol, some things never change.
