Vacuum tube amplifier dock

Roth has unveiled the Music Cocoon MC4, an amplifier dock that relies on vacuum tubes to produce what some say is a richer, warmer sound. Roth recommends that iPod owners load lossless files to ensure maximum fidelity, and the dock charges iPods as they play. The rear of the device also features inputs for laptops, CD systems, and other MP3 players. The dock is simply an amplifier, shipping with no speakers and requiring users to supply their own. The device is rated at 13W with a frequency response of 20Hz-30KHz and an output impedance of 8ohm. The dock is due to launch in April for $780, according to Electronista.
