Audiophiles not wanting to disturb their roommates or neighbors have, historically, needed a solid set of headphones as well as a fairly pricey amplifier to really unleash their potential. The Bravo Audio V2 Tube Amplifier defies a lot of the traditional thinking, though. It’s remarkably small and though it looks bit rough, it delivers on high-quality sound at an excellent price.
All-told it’s about as barebones as the rather naked chassis might imply. You won’t get a digital converter and your I/O options are fairly limited, but at $75, that’s to be expected. You can jack the V2 straight into a computer or portable music player via the standard 3.mm MM jack, or to any RCA source. It works with in-ear headphones as well as circumaurals.
If you’ve recently come into some audiophile-class cans and are looking for a bit more oomph, these are a great alternative to bigger, more expensive amps.
