DESIGN & QUALITY:
These amplifiers have been thoughtfully engineered and meticulously hand assembled in Canada with strict quality checks done throughout the entire process. This amplifier is a non-adjustable Fixed Bias, Push-Pull, Ultra-Linear, Class AB design. Comprehensive engineering tests are performed and a test report is filled out for every unit during the burn-in period to ensure proper performance. For those interested, a copy of this test report is available. This amp can be driven directly from a CD player with excellent results, eliminating the need for a preamp. Nearly any good quality preamp, solid state or tube, will also work well with this amp. We WOULD NOT sell anyone an amplifier that didn't perform to our high standards during listening tests. Our name is on these and we want them to be right for decades.
FEATURES: POWER OUTPUT TUBES - 6AV5GA - A very well manufactured tube, made in the USA, by Sylvania in Emporium, Pennsylvania in 1984. They are a very robust design with cathodes as large as a KT88's. From info we have gathered these are actually 6FW5's labeled as 6AV5GA's. Originally made for demanding military applications, these ideal power tubes provide unrivalled sonic performance in the correct audio circuit, and we believe you will agree once you listen with this amp. McIntosh Labs and Bogen were a couple of several manufacturers that thought so too.
DRIVER TUBES - 12AX7WA's. Some Elite80 versions may use 6N2P-EV (6H2n-EB), a very high quality, excellent sounding, near 12AX7 equivalent.
