R: the plex

So, if you are looking for giving tube sound to the Edp, why don't you take
a look to www.advancetubech.com (or ".it"  I don't remember).
They are producing a tube mixer that I think is the best complement for 
it permits to work on it in parallel keeping two lines free (one dry and
another one effected), giving to the mixed sound tube richness through
valves before the main outputs.
When I have seen this had been invented I have been soooo happy.
