Icon Audio MB90 MK IIms can drive the very best of speakers with ease. Using only four valves the running cost and maintenance is low as the valves are run well within their maximum ratings. The front end is inspired by the famous British “Leak/Mullard” designs of the 1950s. This gives a very smooth musical quality to the high power available, making them very versatile in their application.
