Which earns the Carver Black Beauty 305s not just my heartfelt recommendation but also one of my upcoming nominations for Amplifier of the Year! Jonathan Valin, The Absolute Sound. Its switchable for a classic tube-amp sound or a modern tube circuit sound!
Its simple and tunable to your tastes and speakers! The new Tung-Sol KT120s run so much cooler than the tubes of a normal amp, they should last for years. Plus, super high-resolution bandwidth of 2Hz to 85kHz. These amplifiers have been continuously playing in our shop, and honestly, no words can accurately capture the extension, soundstaging, natural overtones, and subtle nuances they deliver.These are simply the most fun you can have with thirteen grand.
