Kitoki v2 - 5w Single Ended Stereo Amplifier
No longer in production. New design (V3) will be available soon
Note: If you wish to customize your amplifier in any way or if you would like something completely custom, please e-mail me so we can discuss it!
5W, Class A Single Ended Stereo Amplifier
All our amplifiers are hand-made with great care and are point-to-point wired.
This amplifier is very minimalist and is made using only the best parts and great design, such as Teflon coupling caps and a stepped attenuator (built in-house) that comes standard with every Kitoki.
It's because of this that the Kitoki is so fast, natural and honest sounding.
Use it with your favorite high-sensitivity speakers with this amp!
Some more info on the design
This amp comes standard with a series-type stepped attenuator (made by us), which is leagues ahead of any potentiometer in terms of noise and accuracy.
The driver tube is a single, very linear 6N6P tube with active loading for maximized gain and linearity!
The output tube uses the EL84/6P15P-EV/6P14P-EV types with a constant current output stage for lowest distortion and consistent results over the lifetime of the tube.
Teflon capacitors are used to couple the driver to the output stages. These come standard with all Kitoki amplifiers. There are no upgrade options for this.
This amp also doesn't use any feedback loops, so the sound is very natural and open.
If you have any other questions, please send me an e-mail.
Kitoki [ ɡē- dō- ɡē]
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 I thought the name was fitting.

[+$250] 24-Step Ladder-Type Attenuator hand-made in house with Vishay RN military grade resistors. This also upgrades all resistors in this amplifier to the Vishay RN military type.
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
