GLOW Amp One: Classic Tube Amp Gets USB Powers

Of course, normal people don't need amplifiers. But what is normal? Settling for less? We don't think so. About the size of a shoe box, the versatile GLOW Amp One allows silky smooth detailed sound that comes from tube amps, but its USB input is what sets it apart (though looking at it is enough to make us swoon)...

Basically, you plug it into a computer, iPod, cd player, or television receiving high-definition streams and plug it into some speakers and you'll immediately hear the difference.

"The GLOW Amp One is hand crafted and built to last, but costs a fraction of what you would expect to pay for designer audio gear. Comes in your choice of eye popping colors and for a limited time GLOW is offering a free iPod docking station with every purchase."

Dimensions are: 11.5" (L) x 5.5" (W) x 6" (H). Available for $488, a price high enough to scare away normal music aficionados yet keep audiophiles still stroking their wallet.
