This model differs from that described under 'Vacuum Tube Amplifier', in that it produces a more mellow & somewhat subdued tonal nuance owing partly to an inherent beam tetrode characteristic - the elevated, prevalent second harmonic.* By contrast, the EL84 version is influenced in some measure by its diminished, yet sufficiently vocal third harmonic contributing a note of crispness & sparkle to the overall result. Both units are considered fine performers & will provide good service: they exemplify the widely desired tonal qualities of feedback free designs.
- Power Bandwidth (DIN 45-500): 2Wav + 2Wav over 30Hz to 16KHz into 8 ohm loads with 6Vrms input signals.
- Power Consumption: 47 Watts.
The height of this model can reach 6 1/2" (165mm) if ST style, shoulder shaped tubes are fitted (subject to availability).
With exception of the aforementioned details, that which is stated under 'Vacuum Tube Amplifier', inclusive of price, applies to this assembly also; it is therefore important when making your purchase to please specify which model has been selected. Feel free to 'Contact' us, & note that this chassis comes in two optional colours: anodized black & anodized red. The transformer cover & base-plate are black. Please visit the 'Photo Gallery'.
* Owing to the influence of the beam 'forming' plates & careful, physical alignment of the control grid & screen grid helices.
