With all the sleek new iPod docks coming out, getting more and more compact and “clean lined”, it’s cool to see one company making them bigger, slightly clunkier, with a nod to the giant transistors of yesteryear.
The FatMan iTube ValveDock Carbon Edition has an integrated iPod dock (plus two pairs of source inputs for other devices), that pumps rich, warm audio produced by the set of glowing turn-of-the-centuryesque vacuum tubes. At a very 21st century 25 watts per channel. Play through your own speakers, or buy the FatMan with a matching speaker set.
It’s a mashup of old world and new that would make Edison proud.
