Vacuum tube stereo debuts
VUUM Audio has unveiled a vacuum tube amplifier stereo system with speakers, an iPod docking station, and a remote control. The new system is designed to provide audiophile quality sound in a hi-fi stereo system that works with iPods as well as other MP3 players and audio sources. The system includes a vacuum tube amplifier (two 15W) with dual inputs, as well as an adjustable iPod docking station that allows users to charge an iPod. Video output connects a video iPod to a nearby TV, and a pair of speakers in a "piano finish" cabinet the 27 key full-function remote control. The vacuum tube amplifier stereo system also comes bundled with a dust brush and glove cleaning kit, RCA cables, and a pair of speaker cables with "banana" connectors (pricing and availability were unavailable).
