Cons

The Nobsound MS-10D Hybrid Tube Amplifier Power Amplifier, although full of pluses, also has a number of downsides to it as well. First of all, although marketed as portable, it is relatively heavy compared to other similarly priced rivals. It also lacks some of the advanced features that consumers like to see in their amplifiers and are featured on some of its closest competitors.

Additionally, this amplifier is not available in some part of the United States, nor is it sold with an applicable warranty.

Comparison

Although the Nobsound MS-10D Hybrid Tube AmplifierPower Amplifier is regarded as one of the best-selling tube amplifiers on the market, there are many other options to consider including:

  • APPJ PA0901A 6N4+6P14 Mini Tube Amplifier Silver

This amplifier is a 9×38.3×8.2 inch, 4.6-pound minimalist integrated amplifier which comes equipped with a pair of RCA inputs and passive voice control. It also comes fitted with a 6N4 twin triode that is responsible for feeding a single 6P14 per channel. With an advanced power supply—which delivers an output of 3.5 watts per channel—this amplifier is a great option.

  • Gemtune APPJ PA1502A 6N4+6P6P tube headphone amplifier

This amplifier, on the other hand, is offered as a class A tube amplifier with a single-ended triode, along with 100% tube amplification. Its dimensions are 9.1x8x7.9 inches with a weight of about 5.5 pounds. It also comes equipped with 6P6P power amplification and 6N4 voltage amplification. This amplifier is intentionally designed for expansive soundstage presentations, rich tonal quality, and is perfect for highlighting finer musical details.

Many users could argue for both of these amplifiers since they are both proven to be reliable, durable, and high-quality. However, by taking a look at the features of the three separate amplifiers listed, it becomes apparent that the Nobsound MS-10D Hybrid Tube Amplifier Power Amplifier is the best option. This product comes equipped with an extensive list of features that the other two just cannot match.

Verdict

The APPJ PA0901A 6N4+6P14 Mini Tube Amplifier Silver comes in second place, as it comes with a similar, but not as in depth, set of features—and at a much higher price. And lastly, the Gemtune APPJ PA1502A 6N4+6P6P tube headphone amplifier. Although this one looks to be the same as the other two, its price makes it a far less-desirable option.

Despite its minor inconveniences, the Nobsound MS-10D Hybrid Tube Amplifier Power Amplifier remains a favorite for those who love good music and excellent sound quality. Because it is designed to be so durable, user-friendly, budget-friendly, and it allows users to tune its audio files to their desired quality, it is still a great amplifier option.
