Class A Single Ended Triode (SET) Stereo Amplifier
All our amplifiers are hand-made with care and point-to-point wired.
This amplifier is very minimalist and is made using only the best parts and great design. It's because of this that the Kitoki is so fast, natural and honest sounding.
Use it with your favourite high-sensitivity speakers such as those by Omega Loudspeakers.
This amplifier used a single EZ81 tube for its power rectification.
All the capacitors used in the power supply are high quality film capacitors, which are faster and outperform even the very best electrolytic capacitors.
This also employs a large choke filter for even better performance and lower noise.
Driver and Output Stage
Both the driver and output stage are a constant current draw design and provide an easy load for the power supply which provide an easy and very linear load for the power stage.
This amp is designed for use with the excellent 6DJ8/6N1P-EV types, which utilizes one section for the voltage gain and the other section for drive to the output tube.
The output tube uses the EL84/6P15P-EV types with a constant current output stage for lowest distortion. NOTE: We recently upped the idle current on the output stage, resulting in 2W of output power instead of 1.5!
The output transformers used in this amplifier are ultra high fidelity and super wide frequency response. No compromises were made.
In Blackfoot, this name means Prairie Chicken, a small and beautiful wild bird with a lot of personality, and this is a small amp, so we thought the name was fitting.

[+$175] Teflon Film and Foil Capacitors.
This is a big upgrade over the standard film and foil coupling capacitors that come with the Kitoki.
[+$100] Upgrade your driver stage from the original 6DJ8/6N1P to the EL84/6P15P-EV power tube.
It adds somer more punch and slam over the more mellow 6DJ8 driver design!
[+$250] 24-Step Ladder-Type Attenuator hand-made in house with military grade resistors.
Ladder types are the best and most desirable type of stepped attenuator, with only a single resistor in series with the signal path at any time. Picture Below
