"The tube amplifier has seen a resurgence in recent years due to the warm, pleasing sound that only a tube amplifier can offer. The Monoprice Pure Tube Amplifier utilizes four EL84 tubes for the power output stage and three 6N3 tubes for the preamplifier stage to deliver that rich, full-bodied tube sound. This is no hybrid, with a solid state power amplifier stage here! This is a full-blown, all tube amplifier. The black panels, lighted VU meter, and the warm glow of the exposed tubes present a retro look, which enhances any home or office environment with that hint of old school styling. Featuring Bluetooth®, line-level, and phono-level inputs for maximum flexibility. This all-tube power amplifier has all the features to meet the needs of today's music enthusiasts!"

No personal experience with the above but highly recommend the following monoprice IIP house branded items which is what I was searching for:

Adapter high speed pigtail, USB C phones and laptops: Type C to female USB Type A , 3.1 C Gen 2 5Gbps, fast charge, print store transfer to legacy devices, Product # 27935 $9.54 reg price.

Came across these when I was shopping for extra Monoprice Obsidian 45 watt USB C PD wall charger which have been preforming flawlessly in heavy 24/7 use for 15 months. No heating of device or charger. Try to find something this good for $12! Sadly this monoprice "IIIP" house branded charger is now nla.

Similarly the "Pallete" 6 ft C to C 3A braided charge cable has not failed in long term heavy use.

Thank you for the reply. Yes, that's why I took care to point that out when posting.

I just wanted to point that out because your subject line has "all tube not hybrid" and was trying to prevent people from getting confused.

I grew up when all TVs, amplifiers, and radios used tube technology. The solid-state device breakthrough was welcomed, as their performance over time is stable, unlike tubes. Also, there are only a few (primarily Russian) companies, who still make them.

You may post the hybrid amplifier by itself then it won't be a re-post. This way you can "prevent people from getting confused". Good luck on that. At your suggestion I emboldened the description.

I would like to thank Monoprice for being so accommodating! Clever the way you explain "hybrid" on the linked product page.

Yes, there is a reasonable chance of owning tubes made in the same factory in Minsk that Marina and Lee worked in when you buy this amplifier.

1% harmonic distortion makes this ideal for experiencing each of the upcoming live over-the-air speeches expected to alter the nation's destiny in 2020.
