Bill Nye the (so called) Science Guy is no more a physicist, than I am the man on the moon :/
His grasp on science is on a par with that of a "C" average high school student. :/
He's an entertainer, and not a real scientist. p[

With the arrival of really good audio ICs I have decided to scrap all my tube stuff and whole-hartedly go for silicon.
Here's the chip that kicks the butts of all tubes (and transistors too):
