I really want this Sound Enhancing Amplifier from HAMMACHER SCHLEMMER.
Now then, I realize that my 68 year-old eyes look at this differently than a modern technophile, but HAMMACHER does emphasize the thing as a “hybrid vacuum tube amplifier that pairs with any Bluetooth music device to provide superior audio performance.”
The ad is music to my ears – “Vacuum tube amplifiers are known to generate warmer, more dynamic tones than transistor-based models because they limit distortion when overloaded, providing better signal-to-noise ratio.”
Fortunately for old geezers like me, it has a three-way input, including jacks for a CD player or turntable. Oh, a turntable is one of those antique things that plays records – er, ah, well, the amp IS aimed at Bluetooth!
If you love tubes, you’ll want this amp as much as I do.
Only question – if one of the 6N3 tubes goes wonky, how much is a replacement? Does Radio Shack carry it? Etc.
I can’t afford the price – $1800 – but I still want it.
