Fatman mi-tube

Anyone got one of these?

Fatman MI-TUBE 2 | Bluetooth Valve Stereo Amplifier | Richer Sounds


I'm looking to replace my Kenwood amp and am looking for something
small and Bluetoothed.

This came up on Google and it looks quite cool but cannot source one in France
so would like to get some info before getting one shipped over.



Current speakers are a pair of MS Avant 902i

Looks like a nice combo - smooth tube sound to mitigate the MS's treble!

Mmmm I'm not working this week and all the "nice" people who'd drop me an email to
inform me of a delivery are all out too.

Gonna head over later and let the dog crap in the common area like a real French person.....

It LIVES!




MWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!



What a lovely bit of kit it is.




Bluetooth is very short range.
Which I don't think will be a problem because this amp seems to highlight the issue of
the bad source that are my MP3s and audio over Bluetooth from a budget telephone.


Right, to the TataCave to retrieve some CDs and hook it up to the DVD player......!


Test music:

Joshua Tree
Best of the Clash
Misplaced Childhood
Imagine Dragons

Excellent choice, some of my favourite tracks are "With Or Without You" & "In God's Country" I was listening to "The Best Of 1980 -1990" today in the car
