Manley's iTube Amplifier
I recently spent the past few months listening to and reviewing the new Manley Stingray iTube integrated amplifier (the review will appear the March issue of Stereophile). So when I stepped into the Manley room at CES, it felt a bit like I was back at my own listening room at home. The Stingray iTube is based on four EL84 tubes per channel and puts out 32Wpc in Ultralinear mode and 18Wpc in Triode mode. It features an Apple certified iPod dock in addition to its regular single-ended inputs.
Spoiler Alert! I really liked the Stingray when I reviewed it at my house and it sounded just as nice here in Vegas. Though the Stingray was familiar to me, the newly-wed EveAnna Manley wasn't. It was great to finally meet her (she's the one on the right of the photo). On top of being really smart and passionate about audio, she is funny and very sweet.
