In today’s world things are digital; that is just the fact. While this is a good thing on many fronts, digital is not good for everything. For some things; analog is still king. The old clean and beautiful analog wave form beats out the blocky steps of digital in audio and in many cases video. While it is true that you can improve digital to the point where the blocks are not visible to the human eye in visual reproductions the human ear is still capable of discerning the difference between analog and digital.
The problem lie in fact that analog equipment is harder and harder to find. But there is a bright spot out there for all of the audiophiles that miss the clean, pure and power of the analog curve. This is the tec•on audio model "55" Integrated Tube Amplifier for PC.
The tec•on model “55” comes in a very large box and is quite heavy. The box is nothing fancy, it is plainly labeled letting you know precisely what is inside. Once you rip open the box you will find that tec•on has done an excellent job of protecting your new investment. The Styrofoam padding holds not only the base of the amp but the delicate tubes in a protective cocoon. These three vacuum tubes are the heart behind the amazing audio you will hear from the tec•on audio model “55” and will be discussed in detail later.
tec•on provides everything you need to get started. Including a good quality USB cable [we will talk about the USB connection later].
With the notable exception of the Styrofoam [which can be recycled if that is available in your area] the packaging for the model “55” is very green. There are limited plastic wrappers and the box is plain [although heavy duty] cardboard. Despite this eco-friendly setup I would recommend hanging onto the packaging as it is very easily reusable if you need to transport or store the model “55” in the future.
