Default Are there any real tube amps for the car....

I know there's Butler (impossible they're really using the tubes at the plate voltages they use), there's Milbert - too expensive, and US Amps - not good reviews on the boards although I tried a 2-channel one a member had but until I replace my HU it was hard to tell as my MC245 sounded better.

I'm a tube junkie in the home and really was hoping someone made a tube amp that sounded like a tube amp for the car.

That's crazy!!!

I've actually seen this one before. Not a snap to mount this puppy and 6550s generate a load of heat. I can't imagine it will take the bumps well (sportscar). Crazy though. I applaud them.

Never saw that one. Great tube selection. Bummer on 2-channel although makes sense. I guess its needs that outboard ps?

Again - ton o heat from that puppy.

Thanks for the link - interesting.

I'm thinking probably 9-pin tubes as octals just need a lot of plate voltage and dissipate way too much heat.

Tru is very cool looking. I saw this one before on the web too but lost the link. Thanks for that.

Looks gigantic. Wish I had the space...

FULL TUBE (4CH) ZELOS AUDIO

I love that one. 4 channel. Wooden box?

Do they sell them in the US?

It's doubtful they sell them in the US. You could try contacting them to see if they'll sell directly but I believe they carry a pretty hefty price tag.

There are also several tube hybrids like Genesis, Blade, Mark Anthony, Planet Audio and several others.
