The iPod and the Vacuum Tube Sing a Warm Duet

The article talking about new vacuum tube amplifiers for the iPod isn't the reason why I am blogging about it. It is the nugget of truth that is contained in its final paragraphs that needs to be underscored...
The Cocoon, the Fatman and other vacuum-tube amplifiers for iPods are relative newcomers to the United States consumer market. For instance, Lyric HiFi in Manhattan, a center for high-end audio equipment, does not handle any vacuum tube-based docking stations. But Leonard Bellezza, co-owner, said the accessories might soon be popular.

“Everybody has an iPod,” he said. “So anything you can attach to an iPod sells.”
