RE: Can someone explain why a thermistor is used in an amp's power supply?

I have installed them in a few of my components as in-rush current limiters.

The tube preamp and power amps have them and I like the way the power lamps 'come up to full brightness' indicating to me the power supply and the associated capacitors did not get hit with a current surge on turn-on.
