2A3 / 45 Tube Mono-Blocks

2A3 / 45 Tube Mono-Blocks

Regular price $3,995.00 Sale

Well designed, high fidelity SET amp with all the color, emotion and musicality you could ever want. Two designs with no compromise - either based on the famous 45 or 2A3 tubes.  From the designer:

"The Mono-Blocks sounds totally different from the Stereo 2A3 although both portray the 2A3's character better than anyone else on the planet. In the Mono-Blocks you will find better tube bloom, sense of holographic presentation, transparency, greater sense of weight and perfect decay - as you expect from a classic high end Single Ended Triode amp. The Mono-blocks are designed and voiced differently with a more modern type of presentation, but overall are similar to the 2A3 Stereo in a general sense. They have the same sense of texture and tone with great details (especially inner details). But in contrast, the Mono-blocks are different in a few ways. First, the mono's will be tad fuller and more musical, it is easier to understand / distinguish different voices and instruments, diction is better. Second, the imaging is slightly more focused and bolder. It is even more visceral than the Stereo version. Last but not least, the monos will gives you a feeling it comes with a greater bandwidth and directness, thanks to the good/quieter 12AX7 versus the 6SN7 on the Stereo (But both have the good old tube sound that is very addictive and attractive). This is the perfect amp to relax and just listen to lots of music. It also works well with ultra high efficient speakers that tend to sound too forward or bright."
