Ask any audiophile what kind of amplifier gives the best result, and the answer will almost always be the same: traditional valve amplifiers. A company called Fatman has merged the superior audio quality of valve amplifiers with the modern technologies like wireless connectivity. The Fatman Mi-Tube is the latest product of this convergence old-meets-new, and delivers superior sound quality that you’ve probably haven’t seen (or heard) before. The Mi-Tube delivers a powerful 28W of audio per channel, with an output impedance of 4/8 Ohms and signal to noise ratio of 86dB. The amplifier also utilizes a radical new hybrid valve design, the basis of which was first suggested in a
theoretical paper produced over 50 years ago.
The Mi-Tube has two standard pairs of RCA phono inputs for connecting CD players and other line level sources, and Bluetooth connectivity – allowing Bluetooth capable devices to connect to the valve amplifier wirelessly.
