Koichi Futatsumata (Case-Real) designed this rather compact tube amplifier for Japanese electronics kit manufacturer Elekit.

Whilst the discerning audiophile is likely to pursue the natural sound produced by a tube (or valve) amplifier, they can be bulky, monstrous looking things with all the elegance of Dr. Frankenstein’s toaster.

Futatsumata, however, has managed to squeeze the required high-end components into a neat package. Coupled with its simple interface, Elekit may very well have a product that can appeal to the iPod generation.
