A tube (or valve) amplifier is a type of electronic amplifier that uses vacuum tubes to increase the amplitude or power of a signal. Solid-state amps largely replaced tube amplifiers in the 60’s and 70’s, but many audiophiles still prefer the rich, full-bodied sound that a tube amplifier brings to a room. They generally have a more full-bodied sound, and there’s a “roundness” to the tube sound that solid-state gear just can’t quite equal.
Although all amps have to be properly matched to the speakers you’re connecting them to, this is even more important with tube amps. Tubes are less forgiving about mismatches, but with the right combo, the stars will align and you’ll be hooked. Let our expert audiophile team help you get just the right matchup and you’ll be in for years of amazing sound.
We carry the best preamps – brands and units that we trust and can stand behind, like the Dialogue or Prologue Premium from PrimaLuna, which get rave reviews like these:
“It makes no apologies to stereo amplifiers costing three times as much. It is my current benchmark in integrated tube amplifiers.”
“PrimaLuna’s ProLogue Premium has become my new reference for low-power, high-value amplification. Class A sound at a Class C price.”
Richter tube amps are also much loved by critics, with Best Buys Audio proclaiming “love at first listen” for the Richter Mystique, and StereoNet calling it “a honey of a model” that “creates a highly addictive sound” with “abundant charm, poise and complex musical elegance.”
Really, you just have to listen for yourself. Stop by our store in Camp Hill, or give us a call today and we’d love to chat about our tube amps and help you pick the right match for your setup.
