Details

The Audio Note (UK) Gaku-On Mono Power Amplifiers are Pure Class A Parallel Singled Ended valve amplifiers that use a pair of the highly regarded 211 / VT4-C triode valves per chassis, producing a level of performance that is radically superior to the vast majority of current designs.

 

The GAKU-ON represent the pinnacle of our mono amplifier range, and no expense has been spared in their design or production. The finest components are used, including a host of Black Gate capacitors, our own Audio Note (UK) Silver foil capacitors and Tantalum resistors, Silver wire and the finest core materials for all transformers, and Silver signal wire throughout the circuit.

 

They have been specifically engineered for sonic performance rather than technical specification, and fulfil all Audio Note (UK) Level 5 criteria: -

 

Pure Class A operation

Zero Negative Feedback

Single Ended Output Stage

Valve Rectification

Directly Heated Triode operation

Finest Materials and component quality
