A power tube amp for the arch villain

Chrome-finished gadget would make Dr. Evil proud.

Ayon Audio

We've long had a weakness for tube amplifiers , partly because they remind us those bolts of electricity flying around Frankenstein's laboratory . But the latest model from Ayon Audio updates that retro look with a chrome finish that's more Dr. Evil than Dr. Jekyll.

Proving that it's not just a pretty face, the hand-built "Sunfire" provides 30 watts per channel along with its brushed aluminum chassis. Audio Junkies says there may be some trademark issues involved with its name, but we'll leave that to the lawyers. This thing looks like it could pulverize its enemies with a single death ray anyway.
