The micro iTube2 is a tubed output stage, tube preamp, tube buffer AND an impedance-matching device all in one.
The original iTube became the ‘go to’ tube buffer for any and every home audio system. We have redesigned the micro iTube2 with new parts and new circuitry using trickle-down technology from the flagship ‘Pro’ series. Only the GE5670 tube remains.
The micro iTube2 is a tubed output stage, tube preamp, tube buffer AND an impedance-matching device all in one. There is nothing like it. You can put the micro iTube2 before a solid-state preamp and another one after it, creating the effect of tubing the whole audio chain. Or you can choose to simply use the micro iTube2 as a very high-quality preamp by itself.
The micro iTube2 sounds by and far, like a tube amplifier ‘done right with the inimitable magic of tubes.‘ Tonality and heft, especially in the mid-range and bass frequencies are increased to elevate the whole audio system from $100k to $1k. The micro iTube2 injects a serious does of tube magic into any audio system.
