El-34 amplifier

We are very excited with this new offering in this entry level market where there is no shortage of cheap amps. The big deal is not the power (any push and pull amp can have power), rather the tonal quality that is unheard of for an amplifier under $3000. Special attention has been made to female voice, strings and piano sound reproduction The liquid mid and highs have surprising grace, which translates into truly life like presence, clean and articulate without that solid-state transistor glaze. Super low distortion, big sound stage. The performance has pace and rhythm. This is a true entry-level amplifier to audiophile happiness. It may be of all the amp that a person wants or needs. It is only slightly less than that of our 845 single ended amplifier. For this little price, it is a winner! To listen is to believe.

Teaming up with a good CD player and a pair of speakers (any conventional speakers above 85db with 8ohm output impedance would work), you have a great sounding system (or second system).

Recommended upgrades:

1. Signal coupling capacitors upgrade (4 units of capacitors): $120.

2. Powercord $175 for 5 feet length.

3. Speaker cable: 8 feet pair $300, 10 feet pair $350.

4. Interconnection cable: 3 feet pair $400, 6 feet pair $600.
