No ohmic losses, no impedances, nothing but vacuum - could be as the next hyper hi-fi amp or speaker wire for complete audio bliss

Will TWTs ever have application in home or pro audio? You're more likely to find them in satellite earth stations as High Power Amplifiers (HPAs) for uplink transmitters. Their high power outputs are no longer carried on coax cables but on metal waveguides (whose inside is maintained at a vacuum). The ohmic losses are indeed very low compared to cables but one cannot run away from impedance (they have a characteristic impedance of 50 Ohms).

100% agree with you so but some esteemed member may come up with with an exotic DIY and claims of Audio Nirvana;);)

Fascinating technology.
A lot of what is in common use started as exclusive tech developed for military or other exclusive use.
I would not be surprised if some manufacturer of very expensive (so called high end?) equipment adapted this tech for domestic use and sale in the consumer electronics market.
