“Put the iTube2 before a solid-state preamp with another iTube2 after it to create the effect of tubing the whole audio chain,” said an enthusiastic company. Or, of course, you can use the iTube2 as a preamp by itself.

    Hi Paul,
    Can it give a good result to use with Audiolab 6000a for Tubish sound & holographic soundstage?

      Hi Goutom – indeed. Any external model will offer an improvement to an internal phono amp but this was should work well.
