Was looking on the website and noticed that Meier doesn't seem to make the Eartube anymore. Anyone know why Meier doesn't have tube amps in the line up anymore? I reckon a mid range tube amp in the Aria/Cantate price/class would be very popular, especially amongst European head-fiers that cop tax on US amps.

Dr Meier, are you out there... we want tubes!!

I have the same feelings, I'm also plannig to get a tube amp just to get an impression about what everybody calls "a tubey sound" ... I haven't heared tubes so far but I'm really curious. The Eartube was quite expensive and in the 400 -500 Euro range there are mainly Darkvoice and LD.

But he's in the US so it would mean a huge tax slug at my end. Also, what the eartube is a bit out of my price range. I would like to see a tube equivalent to the Aria.

Although I have never heard one, nearly all written impressions I've read about the Meier Corda Eartube state that it has a neutral, decidely non-tubey sound.

This is a marked difference from the RKV from Audiovalve who designed & made the Eartube for Jan.
