Class A Single Ended Tube Amplifier
All our amplifiers are hand-made with care and point-to-point wired and run in strict Class A, never shifting bias. This is a big part of why it sounds so good!
This amplifier is very minimalist and is made using only the best parts and great design, such as film coupling caps, rugged parts and a long warranty.
It also ships with a full set of 6 tubes per monoblock to get you started!
Some more info on the design
This amplifier is a completely OTL (output transformerless) design that uses five parallel 6L6 tubes for the output and one 6DJ8 tube for the gain.
You can use any of the popular and great sounding 6DJ8/6N1P-EV tube types here for all the voltage gain. This tube effects the sound the most so it will be the one you want to roll most often. The output tubes will effect the sound if rolled, but the changes will be much more pronounced by changing the driver tube.
This amp provides a high input impedance and lots of current gain (and some voltage gain) and this OTL monoblock can happily power most loudspeakers :)
All this add up to an amazing value power that will not need you wanting more (except maybe a matching preamp).
