A true audiophile probably shudders at the thought of mp3 files, but the Fatman iTube ValveDock Carbon Edition II with iPod dock might add some warmth and richness back to digital music. The ValveDock Carbon Edition II is a one-piece hybrid vacuum tube amp with an iPod dock that works with all iPods except the Shuffle. It also works with iPhone 2G/3G in flight mode. (It even charges the iPod/iPhone.) The ValveDock Carbon Edition II has 25W per channel and reproduces 20-20,000 Hz. Herrington is offering the iTube ValveDock Carbon Edition II with a remote and a set of matching speakers for $699.00.
