Ok. Ok. I admit it. I watch HGTV sometimes.
Tonight it paid off. They had a cool-ass little gadget called the iMPAMP. This thing rocks. Literally. It’s a power tube amp the size of a notecard (or a Nintendo DS) but with sound big enough to produce the effect of a decked out studio.
You can hook these guys up to your iPod for old-school sound from a new-school device. But you don’t have to go big to get that old-school sound. The zvex iMPAMP is designed small enough to fit in the palm of your hand…a perfect compliment to your iPod nano.
As a burgeoning old-sound connoisseur I’ve got to get my hands on one of these guys. For $525 it’s a steep price to pay, but if you live for sound like I do, then it might just be worth emptying out the spare change.
Whether you hook it up to an old-school turntable system or a latest-tech portable media player, nothing compares to tube sound. And with these tubes, you can take the sound anywhere.
