A 20x2 -watt Digital-to-Analog converter and poweramp!!
I did just the opposite this week --- I hooked my Blackheart EL84 head to my computer.
I can see how they could sell these to folks who don't, you know, "understand" bit depth.
Whether or not that would be considered an improvement probably depends on the ears of the behearer.
Heh. Some suckers will buy it no doubt.

They make claims that the sound is better because they bypass the sound card[and its inferior quality] via USB.The DAC's[see below] they use are the same as Low End sound cards,so that's a pile o' ....! Pity ,because it seems like a good quality Audio Amp.

- USB w/ C-Media 16bit/44kHZ DAC with X2 modulation for hi-frequency quality

For that price, why not buy a cheaper tube amp? I mean, they say tube amp, not good tube amp...

Tube power amps for audio applications just don't make much sense to me. Tubes are cool when it comes to mic pre's and guitar power amps, but for audio reproduction its just inferior technology.
Just as you wouldn't want your speakers to color the sound, you wouldn't want your power amp to do so either.
I want my monitor system to be as flat and neutral as possible so I can get a good idea of what my recording tracks sound like and edit accordingly.
For example, lets say your using a speaker designed to hype up the bass in the mix, well then its going to sound good to your ears but when other people play it on their own systems the lowend is going to be totally weak.
Thats why you want something a flat as possible so you can mix it down to equate nicely to as many other systems as possibe be they pc spseakers, ipods, home stereo systems, club PA systems etc

-Epi Masterbilt AJ500R rosewood
-Fender Classic Player 60's strat CS 69'
-Gretsch Black Phoenix - TV Jones Classics
-Danelectro Dano Pro Baritone
I bet that thing would sound way better than your garden variety sub/satellite system from Comp Usa or Target.
