Fatman’s iTube 452 delivers warm, live sounding audio quality and delivers amazing power. It’s a $2,992 valve amp, with nine heat-pumping valves to drive audio. Valve amps are something of a retro choice these days, but they do offer a unique type of sound, similar to the way that vinyl sounds very different to CD.

With the iPod classic plugged directly into the iTube 452 and a pair of Denon CX3 speakers, sound quality is just fantastic, with so much warmth and spirit. The 452 does come with a separate iPod dock called the ValveDock which doesn’t quite reflect the main system’s special design and build. It feels lightweight, almost like it was an afterthought.The iTube seems particulalry suited to rock, acoustic, folk, country, classical, and particularly vocal-driven music.
