The Magic of Directly Heated Triodes
In the world of ultimate HiFi nowadays, we have a feeling that importance of preamplifiers is still severely underestimated. In fact, the preamplifier is not only the control center, it is the heart and the soul of the entire reproduction chain, being responsible for establishing overall balance and harmony in the system.
When we developed our first preamplifier, we did it with only one goal - to have music that emerges “live” right in front of us – directly and physically tangible.
Once you will hear DHT (Directly Heated Triode) NOS tubes from the 1930ies to 1940ies, you will understand why there is no way back to conventional tube circuits and exactly this is the reason why we deployed them in our SC8.
For the Stereo Console SC8, we use exclusively 71A DHT as an output tube, while rectification is being done by U52 or 5u4g NOS tubes. As in all of our products we pay special attention to power supply and for the SC8 we use in house specially developed and manufactured hand made line output transformer.
