Not everyone is willing or able to change to valve amplifiers. But many hi fi fans find their system can sound too harsh and tiring to listen to for long periods of time. Icon Audio's BA3 is designed to fit between any two units of hi fi and will insert some "warmth and colour" making your hi fi system more pleasant to listen to.
An inexpensive way of adding some valve magic into your system whilst keeping you existing equipment.
