Valves. Remember those? If you're under 40 quite possible you've never seen one. For many years though the valve, or Vacuum Tube, was the transistor of it's age - a key electrical component that enabled everything from your TV to your radio to your Hi-Fi.
It may seem a little odd then to talk about these tokens of a bigone age in the same sentence as the ultra-high tech Apple iPod. Not so however, as Logic 3 show with the latest addition to their range of iPod sound systems - the Valve80. Hi-Fi buffs have long promoted the superior sound quality of valve technology - all but eliminating distortion and noise from the sound being amplified delivering it in unadulterated form to your ears.
The Valve80 can deliver 80W of power to two separate piano black speakers. It also looks completely different to your average black featureless iPod dock. This cool technology does come at a price though - £299, but for those that don't want to compromise on the quality of their sound this could be just the product.
We hope to have a full review shortly!
