Super rare hybrid amplifiers from Veloce Audio and made right here in the USA. One of the most striking designs we've simply ever seen. Utilizes an outboard SmartSupply power supply along with the highest quality components available. These are Hybrid mono amps meaning they use Lithio pure DC power supplies - the SmartSupply for charging is included with the amps with its 2 umbilical cords.These unique amps employ a Class A Tube Driver stage using (2) 6H30 tubes for perfect transfer of dynamic harmonic information. This stage is Transformer Coupled to a Bridged Solid-State Output Stage for maximum power (400W) and lowest power consumption! 400 WPC at 4 ohms - 325 WPC at 8 ohms. In like new condition, possibly NOS / New Old Stock, as there isn't a single sign of any use. Includes the original boxes and all original packaging, manuals, power, and umbilical cords.
Our Testing Process for Amplifiers (Tube): We start with a visual inspection of all internal components to make sure there are no signs of stress or aging. Capacitors are checked for telltale sings of bulging or leaking, resistors are checked for signs of overheating or cracking, and tubes are inspected for signs of stress overheating or cracking.
We then power up the unit carefully and run a simple 1k sine wave while monitoring the output on an oscilloscope for signs of distortion or noise. Finally we run the amplifier to its full rated power into the appropriate resistive load provided by our Sencore amplifier tester. If there is an issue, it will usually be noticeable at this point. If it all looks clean we will often test for THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) measured by our Keithley distortion meter, and compare it against the original manufacturers specifications. The amplifier the remains powered on to "burn in" on our test bench for a few hours to make sure there are no heat related issues.If there are balanced inputs available they will also be tested. We also test all tubes for output gain and leakage on our calibrated B&K 747 tester against the original manufacturers specifications. If needed, the tubes will be replaced from our vast NOS (New Old Stock) vintage or modern inventory.
Final testing involves pushing actual music thorough the amplifier. We've learned over time that some issues are only noticeable to a trained ear while listening to familiar source material.
Our test bench has reference vintage Kef speakers that we're very familiar with which quickly reveal any discrepancies. Some amplifiers will then move into our listening room where they are tested with our in-house reference speakers of choice. Yes - Power & Umbilical.
