Fat tubes to shatter your eardrums

Fatman delivers mega-sound through vacuum system.


Talk about niches. You may not have known, for example, that there are outfits that specialize in vacuum tube amps. In the case of a company called ZVEX, the focus is small ones. Really small ones.

But there are those that go in the other direction as well. Fatman, for instance, has produced what a three-part vacuum tube system called the "iTube Mothership" that delivers 200 watts of mega-sound, according to Luxurylaunches. Unfortunately, that's not the only thing that's big--so is the price, at nearly $10,000. Still, we're relieved to see that Fatman may have escaped the clutches of the egg-shaped speaker empire .
