About the iFi Audio micro iTube2

A touch of tube magic to expand your listening pleasure

The iFi micro iTube2 provides an easy way to give your system's sound the enhanced dimensionality and midrange magic associated with tube gear. Don't let this device's modest size or price fool you. It uses audiophile-grade parts and trickle-down technology borrowed from iFi's reference Pro Series products.

A touch of tube magic to expand your listening pleasure

The iFi micro iTube2 provides an easy way to give your system's sound the enhanced dimensionality and midrange magic associated with tube gear. Don't let this device's modest size or price fool you. It uses audiophile-grade parts and trickle-down technology borrowed from iFi's reference Pro Series products.

Whether you love vinyl LPs or digital discs, the micro iTube2 can give your music a richer, fuller presentation. You can use it as a tube buffer stage between your favorite source — like a CD player or phono stage — and your preamplifier. Or place it between your preamp and power amplifier and warm up the sound of all your sources.

You can also use the micro iTube2 as a tube preamplifier in a single-source system. And because the micro iTube2 provides impedance-matching, it can be a helpful "middle man" if you're connecting directly from a DAC (digital-to-analog converter) to a power amp.

Finally, for more expansive private listening, try placing the micro iTube2 in-line in front of your headphone amp.

Three tube sound signatures

The micro iTube2 offers some interesting options for individual customization. You can choose from three sound signature settings based on different tube amplifier types. Just toggle the front-panel control to switch between SET (single-ended triode), Push-Pull, and Classic, to create the sound that best suits your system and listening preferences. It's really fun to experiment.

Impressive audio processing

iFi 's XBass+® matrix is designed to enhance listening when using speakers with limited bass extension. There are two XBass+ options: one is for speakers missing frequencies below 40Hz, while the other is for speakers that need help below 80Hz. It's a great way to boost bass control without degrading sound quality.

And for a more immersive listening experience, iFi's 3D Holographic+® technology corrects spatial distortion issues in recordings and increases soundstage width and depth.

Who is iFi Audio?
