FATMAN iTUBE MkII VALVE AMPLIFIER AND iPOD DOCK
Based on the award winning and 5 star rated original, the Fatman iTube MkII continues the fine tradition. It is an amplifier, USB DAC and iPod dock solution which combines the convenience of remote control iPod functionality with the superior performance of an audiophile valve amplifier, all clad in a stunning, highly-polished chrome case. Ready for use with your own choice of speakers.
As a dock solution, the iTube Valvedock excels. It features video out (should you wish to use it with an iPod Video) and the amplifier also allows for a second source to be connected, such as a CD player.
The MkII also boasts a USB socket, allowing you to use the Valvedock as a DAC (Digital to Analogue Converter). This makes it perfect for getting high quality sound from your PC or laptop, bypassing the often low-quality DACs found on integrated computer sound cards.
For that warm sound that only a valve amp can deliver, and fantastic iPod/USB functionality too, the Fatman iTube Valvedock MkII is a unique hifi system solution
