While you want to see what all of the fuss over tube amplifiers is about, you’re not ready to drop a small fortune on an experiment. Luckily, Bravo Audio makes some of the highest performance and most affordable tube amps around, and we’re happy to offer their flagship model, the Bravo Ocean Tube Amplifier.
Solid to the touch with a significant heft, the casing is made from solid aluminum and gussied up by a bright cyan finish. Underneath that dazzling exterior, a 12AU7 Tube produces a warm sound signature that lightens up any and all of your tracks. Pairing perfectly with darker headphones like the Sennheiser HD650, the 12AU7 is also incredibly ubiquitous, making tube rolling a very real and affordable option.
Thanks to the 500 mW power output, the Ocean can power everything from the Audio-Technica TH M50s to the Beyerdynamic DT889 600 Ohm Edition. Accepting both RCA and 1/8” inputs, the back panel also features an RCA pre-amp output. On the front, you have your choice of 1/8 or 1/4” headphone outputs, letting you plug in monitors and cans alike. A recipient of five star reviews from Head-Fi and an overall marvel of modern design, the Bravo Ocean Tube Amplifier looks great on your desk and makes your music sound even better.
