The Block is One Cool-Looking Tube Amplifier


This very cool-looking vacuum tube amplifier was designed by Mateusz Główka. It looks like a solid hunk of metal, but it was made from sheets of aluminum and stainless steel. Each of the individual components has been placed specifically to give the best possible sound and reduce interference.

While digital technology is great, we all know that analog components have a certain warmth and depth of sound that is hard to replicate. This is one of the good reasons why there are some nice vacuum tube amp kits available out there, and they promise to outperform their digital counterparts while costing a fraction of the price.

All in all, this looks incredibly cool and I’d to see either a kit or a pre-assembled version of this for sale, if the sound is as good as it’s supposed to be. For now, all we have is this cool one-of-a-kind prototype.
