  1. The Skipper: Gilligan, pedal faster.

    Professor: Skipper, we don’t have the correct gear ration to generate the power necessary to charge our iPod. In order to compensate for Gilligans weak, girly legs we need a new coconut gearing system.

    The Skipper: Faster, Gilligan, Faster

    – Cut to Gilligan (with sped up film sequence) speeding away into the lagoon with Ipod dragging behind.

  2. That appears to be a hybrid solid state amp with a vacuum tube driver stage … a proper 15 watt vacuum tube amp would be a lot bigger/heavier/more-awesome. My 15 watt tube amps weigh a total of ~60 lbs ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”raspberry” style=”border:0;” />

  3. The Marshall Sound…only kidding.

    I already plug my iPod into my Marshall (all tube amp).

    CitizenX dont compare 15 watts tube with 15 watts solid state. While I can’t imagine that the speakers or power supply is capable of pushing a true 15 watts of sonic power through this little amp, what do I know.
    By comparison, my crappy little practice amp is a little Marshall 20 watt tube/solid state combo (AVT20) that’s just a single ECC83 valve in the preamp stage. I don’t mind saying It is mind crushingly loud.

    My main amp is a Marshall DSL50 (watts) head on a 4×12 cab, Is it loud? forget about it!!!

  4. No one here can tell the difference between 256 AAC and uncompressed CD audio. Period.

    So this amp would probably make your iPod sound wonderful.

    I didn’t realize just how good an iPod sounded ’til I picked up a pair of Etymotic ER4P’s. Wow, is all I can say.
