This hand built tube amplifier will look amazing and sound unbelievable in your office or home. The 3/4" thick walnut and cherry enclosures are hand rubbed with linseed oil, then waxed and are reminiscent of audio equipment built 50 years ago by craftsman. The retro feel of the exposed tubes distinguish a tube amplifier from any other type of audio player. When the lights are turned down, the tubes themselves produce a warm glow that makes this sound-system stand out from all the rest. This is a system you will be proud to show and a system that that could well be in your family for generations...
Tube Amplifiers History
Vacuum tube amplifiers are an old technology, invented more than 100 years ago. The silicon transistors used in most amplifiers today were invented in the 1960's and very rapidly replaced vacuum tubes in almost all audio products.The solid-state amplifiers have a few notable advantages over vacuum tube amplifiers:
- much smaller and lighter;
- usable in low power situations, such as battery-powered radios;
- much improved energy efficiency;
- no warm-up time (tube amplifiers need to be warmed up before use).
So on the face of it, solid-state amplifiers would seem like a much better choice, but that's not the whole story...
Tube amplifiers have a more refined sound, very different from a transistor amplifier. The tone of a vacuum tube amplifier is softer, warmer and more natural. Vocals are more articulate, the separation of the instruments is much more defined and the entire listening experience is greatly enhanced.
There is only one reason to invest in a tube amplifier...To thoroughly enjoy your music as it was intended to be heard.
