This single ended Pentode amp is destined to become a legend in its own time . Designed in Canada.

It features Obbligato Gold coupling caps and the superb Tungsol KT120 output tubes these tubes are now the valves of choice for the renowned American manufacturer Audio Research.

Here is a short review of the KT 120

What is immediately obvious over the KT 88 is the scale of the music. The soundstage has grown noticeably, and sounds that were locked near to the speakers previously now jumped out into the room. Bass was no more extended than before but certainly had more texture and felt more in control. Midrange presence and tone were maybe a bit better than before but what really stood out was the clear, extended treble. I hadn’t realized that I had gotten used to the rolled off sound of the KT 88 and was pleasantly surprised at the sweet, shimmering sounds now being played. Also of note was the way these valves separated the strands of the music out more than before, allowing you to hear details previously covered up.
