He and Trends Audio are certainly banking on the idea that Apple’s portables will be making the transition into listening rooms with the release of their new tube preamp/headphone amplifier combo. The PA-10 is a tube preamplifier made specifically for iPods and iPhones from the ground up. From the connector cable – which is said to isolate and eliminate the interference from the iPhone’s Line Out – to the 6DJ8/6922 series or 12AU7 series vacuum tube.
The folks at Trends Audio see this as a high end audio solution that retains all the portability of the MP3 player. They call it a portable audio solution that’s “suitable for hi-fi room, living room, sleeping room or even right beside your laptop computer.” Trends Audio’s PA-10 sports a class A amplifier, and is compatible with newer generations of iPod, and all iPhones. The PA-10 Tube Headphone/Pre Amplifier is available now at around $299 from Trends Audio and certified dealers.
