Product features

  • harmonic distortion - 0,0028 % at 1 W; 0,011 % at 5 W and 0,13 % at 50 W is achieved by harmonizing all circuits and components.
  • the transformer core is vacuum impregnated, and the entire transformer is encapsulated in a special anti-vibration compound. In addition, the massive, welded cover in which the transformer is located, creates effective electromagnetic shielding and contributes significantly to the excellent signal-to-hum distance. The additional capacitor at the input improves the dynamic of the anode voltage filtration.
  • the filtration capacity is 3.900 mF / 550 V. A choke, that is placed under welded cover, has been used to eliminate anode voltage ripple, which increases the filtering efficiency of the 100 Hz component of the anode voltage.
  • the output permalloy transformers are specially designed for the power amplifier.
  • only high-quality polypropylene capacitors are used in the signal path.
  • the conductors on the signal paths consist of slow drawn oxygen-free copper, which is coated with pure silver.
  • instant switching between feedback and zero feedback.
