Details

The Audio Note (UK) P1 Stereo Power Amplifier is a Pure Class A valve design, producing an outstanding level of performance and value. Available in Push-Pull and Single Ended designs.

The P1 PP has been specifically engineered for sonic performance rather than technical specification, and fulfils all Audio Note (UK) Level 1 criteria: -

 

Pure Class A Push-Pull Pentode operation

Materials and component quality

The P1 SE has been specifically engineered for sonic performance rather than technical specification, and fulfils all Audio Note (UK) Level 2 criteria: -

 

Pure Class A Single Ended Pentode operation

Materials and component quality

It is a Pure Class A amplifier that uses a pair of the highly regarded EL84 valves per channel in Parallel Single Ended operation, which preserves the entire musical waveform as one „whole‟, producing a level of performance that is radically superior to the majority of current designs.

 

Part selection is optimised to realise the most neutral and realistic sonic reproduction.

 

Some of the superior quality components employed in the P1 SE include: -

 

Aluminium foil capacitors, used in the most critical areas.

Custom designed output transformers, manufactured by Audio Note (UK). These output transformers – one of the most critical areas of valve amplifier design – allow the P1 SE to produce impressively extended and controlled bass.

Some of the superior quality components utilised in the P1 SE Signature include: -

Audio Note (UK) Copper foil capacitors used in the most critical areas.

Audio Note (UK) Tantalum resistors used in the most critical areas.

Custom designed output transformers, manufactured by Audio Note (UK). These output transformers – one of the most critical areas of valve amplifier design – allow the P1 SE Signature to produce impressively extended and controlled bass. The Signature transformers are our custom manufactured IHiB, C-Core copper wound models, which are quite possibly the finest examples of output transformers for this type of amplifier available in the World today.
