Details

The Audio Note (UK) P2 Stereo Power Amplifier is a Pure Class A valve amplifier 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. Available in Push-Pull and Single Ended designs.

The P2 PP fulfills all Audio Note (UK) Level 1 criteria: -

Pure Class A Push-Pull Pentode operation

Materials and component quality

 

A high gain power amplifier stage is used consisting of an ECC82 dual triode acting as an anode follower for the first stage, the output of which is applied to a second anode follower (6SL7) which feeds the parallel connected 6L6G output valves.

 

The output transformers are custom designed and manufactured by Audio Note (UK), and are of the highest possible quality.

 

The power supply is a multi element design, ensuring precise operation of each circuit stage, whilst a DC supply feeds the low level valve filaments.

The P2 SE fulfills all Audio Note (UK) Level 2 criteria: -

 

Pure Class A Single Ended Pentode operation

Materials and component quality

Some of the superior quality components utilised in the P2 SE include: -

Aluminium foil capacitors, used in the most critical areas.

Dual power supplies and transformers, one for the output stage and one for the remaining circuitry.

Custom designed output transformers, manufactured by Audio Note (UK). These output transformers – one of the most critical areas of valve amplifier design – allow the P2 SE to produce impressively extended and controlled bass.
