You might be thinking: why tubes? that's old technology. Well don't say that to a musician. Most guitar amps are still powered by vacuum tubes. Guitar amplifier companies have tried for years to duplicate the tube sound with solid state components, but if you ask most guitar players, they haven't succeeded. That's why when you go to a concert and they have amplifiers on the stage, you are probably listening to tube technology. If you want to hear music like it's live, you need to duplicate the same sound components that performers use in a live concert.
The T-1 Amplifier makes you feel like you're not just playing recordings; close your eyes, and you might just forget that the musicians aren't performing in front of you. This is something you just don't feel from a solid-state amp. The tubes breathe life into the music completely unlike flat lifeless sound of a CD.
T-1 Amplifier Amp has only volume control. With no bass, loudness and treble tone controls, gives our T-1 Amplifier a cool and retro look. There are very good technical reasons for eliminating these signal altering clutter devices, Tube amps don't need them like transistor amplifiers do, and they make the sound worse, not better. Low to moderate volume levels, a tube amplifier retains the tone balance much better than a transistor amp, making it unnecessary to constantly adjust the tone, bass and loudness controls or to play music at higher volume level than what you really want. All the signal processing circuits in a transistor amp color the sound and can hide the details of the performance. Most people aren't aware of how much music can be ruined by all the unnecessary circuits and processing. We take all that stuff out and offer a simple straight-line path for your music signal to follow.
Plus remember Stereo sound is the best way to re-create a natural sounding musical performance, simply because it does not need all the complex sound decoding stuff that more than often only serves to ruin the sound.
T-1 Amplifier can power your speakers.
With the typical transistor amplifier, people tend to play music at much higher volume levels than necessary, to compensate for the transistor sound. Turned down to moderate levels, many Big Name transistor amplifiers sound about as fulfilling as a good tabletop radio. You either turn the volume back up or mess around with the tone and loudness controls to make it sound better. But low power (compared to transistor), push pull tube amplifiers are famous for providing breathtaking detail and a full, rich sound even at low volume levels, so that many users find it unnecessary to play music at high sound levels. When matched with quality speakers, the T-1 Amplifier will fill a small to medium sized listening room with surprisingly full, extremely detailed high-fidelity sound. The T-1 Amplifier will work well with many home audio and studio monitor speakers. Watts on a transistor amp are cheap. You can buy a 100-watt receiver for a few hundred dollars at an electronics outlet. The wattage ratings of the typical big name amplifier tell you nothing about how the amplifier really sounds when it plays music. While a transistor amplifier may have higher watts, a well-designed tube amplifier will just sound better. Why do experienced guitar players insist on vacuum tube guitar amps.
Listen to your music all day with no so called fatigue as with transistor amps.
Another noted advantage of the sound of a good tube amplifier is the minimizing of "listening fatigue". Many audiophiles have attributed this to "transistor noise", the tendency of transistor amplifiers to produce higher amounts of odd order harmonic distortion, and the tendency to emphasize sharp transients. Because we have eliminated the transistor noise, you can listen to your T-1 Amplifier for many hours at a time without the slightest listening fatigue.
