SONATAS - Reference MK2  Stereo Valve Tube Power Amplifier


Audio Experience SONATAS-Reference MK2 is a 82W + 82W Stereo Valve Tube Power Amplifier.
 
It uses one matched pair of KT88 or KT120 or KT150 power tubes and UL working status to provide RMS 82W adequate output for most of the Hi-End Speakers to ideal performance. Moreover, It use the high quality output transformer ( Hasimoto . made in Japan).
Huge dynamic range, both the beautiful tone color and wonderful rhythm , ultra linear circuit of the valve tubs power amplifier designed for the SACD source in the New Century. uncanny natural flowing heart-stirring sound that matches any other ultra-Fi products on the market .

Features

   The input/driver stage is new design, 12AU7 input stage direct coupling to 6H30 driver stage , The driver stage use Amtrans Golden Black coupling capacitors to Gold Lion KT88 or TUNG-SOL KT120 or TUNG-SOL KT150 power tube , The power tube work at P-P UL mode to driver Hasimoto HW-60-5 CUT CORE orient high B" output transformer , The HW-60-5 output transformer has very low Insertion Loss 0.21dB only.  ( Many tube power amplifier in Hi-End audio market , Their have the output transformers is over 1dB Insertion Loss . only about 10% very high price tube amplifier use under 1dB Insertion Loss of output transformer ) . The output transformer has low insertion loss is very important , the best of the best is 0 dB Insertion Loss , The output transformers for High End tube amplifier need under 1dB  Insertion Loss . The Insertion Loss over 1.5dB output transformer will lost many low level music.

The Sonatas-Reference have RCA and Balanced two version, the price is same.

The components ,  NFB value , tube type , circuit all select by listen test.
