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.

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design with cathodes as large as a KT88's. From info we have gathered these are actually 6FW5's labeled as 6AV5GA's. Originally made for demanding military applications, these ideal power tubes provide unrivalled sonic performance in the correct audio circuit, and we believe you will agree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.

CONTROLS - AC Power Switch, and two Level Controls.

CONNECTORS - Power: IEC320 Inlet, Input: Gold plated RCA, Output: 5 way Binding Posts on ¾" centers. A detachable IEC power cord is included.

CIRCUIT PROTECTION - There are 9 internal circuit protection devices to ensure safe operation for all components and users.

DOCUMENTATION - This amplifier comes with a comprehensive owner's manual.

AUDIO POWER OUTPUT - Greater than 20 Watts RMS per channel or greater than 40 Watts DAP per channel - both channels driven simultaneously.

FREQUENCY RESPONSE - 25 Hz to 22 KHz plus or minus 0.6dB.

INPUT SENSITIVITY - 1.2 volt RMS signal will provide full output.


OUTPUT IMPEDANCE - Comes wired for 8 Ohms - 4 ohm and 16 ohm taps are available - please contact us if you need these.

HUM AND NOISE - Less than 1.5 millivolts or minus 56dBv on the output jacks.

AC POWER REQUIREMENTS - North America -120 Volts, 60HZ.

POWER CONSUMPTION - 85 watts idling and not more than 150 watts at full output.

DIMENSIONS - 12.0"(305mm)Wide x 8.0"(203mm)Deep x 7.5"(190mm)High and weighs 30 Lbs. (13.6KG).

TRANSFORMERS - All three- 1 power and 2 output- are Canadian made to Ideal Innovations' specifications and have been Hi-Pot tested at 1500 volts. The output transformers use M6 laminations, feature special interleaving and have screen taps at 43%. The power transformer and all AC components are UL & CSA approved.

CHASSIS - All custom made heavy gauge sheet metal finished in black textured powder coat for maximum durability and good appearance.

SMALL COMPONENTS - Resistors are all ceramic flameproof and rated at 1 watt or more regardless of actual load and capacitors are all high quality for long life. Level control potentiometers are full size, not those little cheapies that wear out after a while. All tube sockets are ceramic with good quality pin sockets.

SERVICEABILITY - Should the situation ever arise, this amplifier can be repaired in minutes, not hours. It is made with a very high quality PC Board that is made of an electrically rated 0.062" thick fiberglass and a 2.5 ounce solder masked copper cladding. This circuit board is easily accessed from both sides and has no hot tube sockets mounted to it like many other brands. Instead everything is hand wired to the PC board which is also fully hand soldered to ensure perfect connections.

WARRANTY - The Elite80 Amplifier comes with a LIFETIME warranty on everything except tubes which are one year - we burn them in and test them very well. This warranty is subject to the terms and conditions of our Warranty policy as posted on our website.
