The vocals, horns and strings are so realistic it's almost disturbing. I've played every genre from Classical to Classic Rock and simply don't want to shut the amps off. Even after several hours of moderate level listening the transformers are simply warm to the touch. The bass response is incredible. The amps are impressive sounding by any standard.
Each amplifier uses a genuine Dynakit P-782 power transformer plus a an A-431 Output Transformer - These amps have new production Dynakit transformers which are manufactured to work from standard, modern 120-125 volt household AC current. They operate cooler, produce less distortion and outperform vintage transformers in every category. These transformers were reverse engineered from the original designs using many modern manufacturing technologies and superior insulations. These are super high quality USA made transformers that meet and exceed every aspect of the originals. Modern advancements in materials, combined with traditional methods and better technologies used in the manufacturing has resulted in absolutely superb transformers that produce improved sonics, cleaner power, less distortion and increased reliability.
An inrush current limiter is incorporated into the AC mains to gently apply power during initial start up. Riginal (vintage) transformers with cloth leads are inarguably excellent, but remember, they were designed to operate on 117 volts (think 1950's).
Today's household AC current is often near and occasionally higher then 125 volts, so the use of a "step down" or "bucking" transformer is necessary to reduce the voltage down to a safe operating level for any vintage amp having its original cloth lead transformers. The transformers on these amps are designed to operate off of 120-125 volts - no voltage reduction is necessary! Each MK III circuit board is a Genuine Dynakit PC-1 using the original stock circuit and a single 6AN8A tube. These boards feature CDE 942C series capacitors for superior sonic performance and reliability.The 942 series have polypropylene film and dual metallized electrodes for both self healing properties and high peak current carrying capability. These are simply some of the best caps on the market at any price, they sound phenomenal.
The smaller caps are Cornell Dubilier dipped silver mica. The resistors are a mixture of 1% screened metal films and 5% carbon films for superb accuracy while retaining the warmth so desirable in tube amplification. Brands are TE, Vishay, and Dale.The tube sockets on the PCB are the high quality Belton Micalex type. The diode rectified bias and power supply features F&T 100uF 100 Volt rated electrolytic capacitors for outstanding electrical performance. Upgraded Premium Dynakit 80/40/30/20uF multi section filter capacitors which are rated for 550V (600V surge).
20 AWG USA made wire carefully routed and secured in the chassis, soldered with Kester 60/40 rosin core. Genuine Dynakit Shielded choke #C-354 for extra quiet operation. These amps are dead quiet. Genuine Dynakit mirror Polished stainless steel chassis with Brown covers and labels. Original style screw terminals allow for 4, 8 and 16 ohm speakers.(4) Identically matched JJ KT88 Tubes. The tubes were intended for private labeling to be used as the OEM tubes in their high end production amplifiers so the tubes are unlabeled, this looks really nice. These tubes were hand selected, tested and graded, these were a great find and they sound as beautiful as they look! Tested and matched using the ROE computer tube matching system - these tubes sound awesome, one of the best rated KT88 tubes on the market.
Ordered brand new as a matched quad just for these amps. (2) Test matched and sweet sounding NOS vintage made in Gt. Britain Mullard 6AN8A tubes with GE labels in their original boxes.
(2) New Tung-Sol 5AR4 / GZ34 rectifier tubes with their original boxes. 3 Prong Grounded Power Cords. These amps are a true identically matched set. These are modern, brand new amps made to operate from standard (USA) 120-125 Volt AC current.
You do not need a voltage reducer to run these amps , just plug them in and go. The amps shown in the photos are the amps you are going to receive, nothing else in the photos is included. The sale is for the two MKIII amps, the tubes, the covers and the manuals for the amps. Ships in two boxes - insured for full value.Each amp will be individually double boxed. Tubes will be removed and properly packaged inside each amps individual box.
