Fatman iTube ValveDock


If you want to unleash new life from your iPod music collection check out this fusion of old and new technology.

Unlike other iPod hi-fi systems, the iTube ValveDock comes in two parts. The business end is the hybrid valve amp and the second part in question here is the iPod dock. It's designed to work with all iPods (apart from the Shuffle) - you just drop your...

Fatman iTube valve dock review


This valve-plus-iPod-dock took us by surprise way back in 2007 when we first tested it, but nowadays we're just happy to be old friends – it's quality

The valve amplifier looks fantastic ; sonically, still one of the best docks money can buy

Nothing, now that the reliability issues seem to have been fixed

This Award-winner remains about the best-sounding dock around - add decent speakers for a superb system, and check your iPod for compatibility

Realy Goog looking system , and the sound matches the looks , super smooth valve sound from a digital input , brilliant

Lovely look & sweet sound, this "toy" has made my mind up for valves. Absolutly perfect for small sitting rooms or reading corners.

There is not a high res USB input 24/96 or more for direct PC, Flac, etc. iPod dock becomes always On when you turn on general switch. iPod level seems a little low.

Sound quality for the price is amazing

Finding it a bit difficult to pair with speakers which suit the design

Handsome and different. The valves make a real difference to the quality of sound.

Can't think of any!
