Roth Music Announces Cocoon MC4 – Tube Driven iPod Amp
Roth Music has announced the Cocoon MC4, a hybrid-tube amplifier designed to add sonic sparkle, depth and tube creaminess to Appleâ€™s iPod or any other portable digital music player.
The MC4 features a built-in iPod dock on the top of the amplifier, a 3.5mm socket round the back for portable audio or laptop devices, and a pair of sockets for CD outputs. Roth acknowledges that it “canâ€™t weave some magic to restore what has been lost in compressed audio files, but we can guarantee that the amplifier will add a real warmth and dimension to the music which other amplifiers are not designed to do.” And if you look closely Roth is using Electro-Harmonix’s very-musical tubes in their chassis.
