6SN7 SET - $11,000
The 6SN7 tube is the father of all modern dual triode tubes. After 68 years of production it is still highly sought after for it’s unequaled linearity and power handling. That is why it continues to be the input tube of choice for countless high end tube amplifiers.
Now it enters a new role in life as the only tube needed in a zero feedback SET amplifier. Working in parallel configuration, the 6SN7 amplifier puts out 3.3 watts a channel. This allows the 6SN7 to power any speakers with a sensitivity greater than 96dB. And with a gain of 12 it does so with very little input required. A signal of 0.238 volts provides 1 watt into 8 ohms.
Keeping in line with the, “it's all you need” theme, the 6SN7 takes the meaning of the words "integrated tube amplifier" to a new level. Configuration options include:
- 10 ohm speaker output transformers
- Volume control
- Choice of:
- DAC input module with 1 analog input OR
- 4 Analog inputs
Monitoring and adjustments are made easy with top mount:
- AC voltage and power consumption monitoring
- Bias monitoring and adjustment
- Logo color adjustment
- Resettable hour meter
Hearing the 6SN7 by itself is a revolutionary experience in linearity and increased detail for both the speaker and headphone listener. Combining the 6SN7 with the "analog focused" DACP or single ended phono preamplifier module takes the listening experience to a whole new level while adding the convenience of fewer components and cables.
