    We have gotten ourselves into Old Gods of Appalachia here recently, as well as true crime podcasts. The Bluetooth speaker is a checkout line special that's not terrible but has that tinny fart in a coffee can sound. I grew up with radio that had tubes at one of my great-grandparents' house. I still want that sound.

    I'm considering an old tube radio, an AM broadcaster and a bluetooth bridge but that's a lot of signal translation. Is there a way to get that warm tube sound without all those hoops? Am very good at soldering, so not afraid there. Can build a suitable enclosure. Just hoping not to break the bank if possible. Might want a magic eye dB meter in there, but I can wire that up.
