The item longed for and highly collectable among analog audio, this is the vacuum tube amplifier. This is "Amtrans Akihabara," the vacuum tube specialty store that draws in collectors who like the unique warmth of the soft tone quality. It is a store with that Akiba style, selling products that have been guaranteed with expert knowledge and complete inspection.
The shop is located on the first floor inside the radio center, and lined up alongside other stores that sell electronic components and the like.
Because each and every vacuum tube produces a different sound, one of the things that attracts our customers is that the sound quality changes simply by switching the vacuum tube, even with the same amplifier. There are also customers who enjoy exchanging the vacuum tubes until they find their favorite tone among our products.
We produce and sell not only vacuum tubes, but also items such as capacitors and electrical resistors built around sound quality.
Advance reservation is required, but in the audio shop's "Auditorium" on the first floor of the Amtrans headquarters, you can enjoy the tones resonating from the vacuum tube amplifier. You can also try actually replacing and listening to the different vacuum tubes that are sold in the Akihabara store.
"Vacuum tubes are often discontinued and will not perform as written if they have not been preserved well, even if the list of technical characteristics is still attached. Please be assured that the vacuum tubes sold here have all had their special properties checked and their operation confirmed."
