/EINPresswire.com/ BlueTube Audio has released a hand-built wood enclosed blue tooth enabled vacuum tube amplifier.
A vacuum tube amplifier hand crafted in a walnut/cherry hardwood enclosure is reminiscent of craftsmanship from 60 years ago. BlueTube Audio of Franklin, IN is currently funding a Bluetooth enabled Vacuum tube amplifier on the popular crowd sourcing site Kickstarter. The retro feel of the exposed tubes distinguish a tube amplifier from any other type of audio player. When the lights are turned down, the tubes themselves produce a warm glow that makes this sound-system stand out. "In designing the case we wanted an enclosure that was functional and simply looked awesome." said Ben, the master craftsman. He hand selects 3/4" cherry and
walnut lumber, laminates them together and hand sands each board. After constructing the enclosures, everything is hand-rubbed with linseed oil and finished off with 3 coats of wood wax that is then buffed to a smooth and durable finish.
The amplifier is a "Class A Push-Pull" stereo amplifier that produces 8 watts at the speaker outputs. The amp utilizes triode-pentode tubes; which provide 8 tube stereo performance with just 4 tubes.
The internal Bluetooth radio is a Class2 16-bit A2DP stereo compliant receiver and features "voice setup" that has a female voice that will verbally walk users through the pairing setup. This system works with any Iphone, android or MP3 player that has a Bluetooth radio.
The optional speakers have matching walnut/cherry cases that incorporate 4" full range titanium cone speakers that look as good as they sound.
Terry, Adam and Ben designed, built, funded and delivered the highly successful ClockOS project just over a year ago and now Ben and Adam are back with the BlueTube Audio vacuum tube amplifier. Ben and Adam are brothers with backgrounds in fine arts and product design. The brothers have been working together for a little over two years and couldn't be happier to be working on specialty projects like the ClockOS and BlueTube amp. Both brothers live in Indianapolis, IN.
