With improved circuitry when compared to the original unit, the VOX amPlug G2 Blues is a headphone amplifier for your electric guitar that takes up very little space, as it plugs straight into your axe with a folding 1/4" connection point.

In all three modes, gain, tone, and volume controls let you tweak your sound to taste, and an FX button supplies you with delay, reverb, or chorus. An auxiliary stereo input jack allows you to jam along with an external audio device, and of course, a stereo headphone jack offers you a private listening experience, so you can practice late at night without bothering your neighbors. 

The unit accepts two AAA batteries, running for approximately 11 to 17 hours on alkaline power and four to nine hours on zinc-carbon. After thirty minutes of inactivity, the unit will shut off on its own accord.

B&H # FIBTR1 MFR # BTR1

The FiiO BTR1 is a Bluetooth receiver with an integrated DAC. It is intended to give you, the listener, a more refined, detailed, articulate, and sonically pleasing experience when listening to music over Bluetooth. Quite often, Bluetooth streaming leaves something to be desired—music can sound tinier, thinner, and describable with other pejorative adjectives. At the center of the BTR1 is the AK4376 DAC, which handles sample rates and resolutions up to 384 kHz / 32-bit. This DAC is housed alongside FiiO’s Bluetooth Chip architecture to provide support for Bluetooth 4.2, as well as Bluetooth aptX and SBC.

Surrounding these components is a sleek aluminum-alloy chassis, which can stylishly clip onto your shirt pocket or shoulder strap. A microphone is provided so you can take phone calls in between tunes. A built-in rechargeable battery lasts for eight hours, ensuring you can listen to music wirelessly for a long time. If your iOS or Android device doesn’t have a 3.5mm headphone jack, this can serve as a high-quality method to stream great sounding music to your device.

Styled in black, the iRig Nano Amp from IK Multimedia implements the circuitry from the iRig 2 into a battery-powered micro amplifier. As such, you can use this unit as a personal practice amp, plugging your instrument directly into its input, or as a means to route audio into iOS or Android devices.

In conjunction with a device such as the iPhone or iPad, you can also use the iRig Nano Amp to route audio into apps such as AmpliTube, a version of which is included with the purchase of this item. This connection, once established via the amp's 3.5mm Device output and your phone/tablet's input, will afford you access to a whole slew of amplifier emulations, cabinet simulations, and stompbox models, alongside backing tracks, loopers, drum machines, multi-track recorders, and more.
