The Philosophers Tone; a small metal box which alchemically transforms electrical current through its ingenious use of transistors, chips and whatever you call those things on the inside, into pure tone. I plug in with joy realizing that with this act I am in the great philosophical continuum and that in fact Descartes was right 'I sustain therefore I am'
