The Bluetooth Sound Enhancing Amplifier looks like steampunk, but it has some modern features married with some old technology. The amplifier uses two 6N3 vacuum tubes to “generate 20 RMS watts per channel of distortion-free signal, adding punch and clarity to high bit-rate MP3s, Apple Lossless, or CD-quality audio played wirelessly from an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Android phone. The tubes also provide robust bass response by ameliorating the natural acoustic qualities of second and third harmonics for richer sound coloration.” The new technology comes with the Bluetooth capability, and you can also connect your mobile device via a 3.5mm audio input, and you can connect a turntable or a CD player via RCA jacks. You’ll also need to connect your own 4-8 ohm speaks via the binding posts on the back of the Bluetooth Sound Enhancing Amplifier. Its price is as breathtaking as its looks; it’s $1800.00 at Hammacher Schlemmer.
