The NEW Carissa is an amazing amp. Just like the original amp, this one sacrifices absolute power to double the current output. It may only be 18w, but they are 18 spectacular watts.
The added current ensures outstanding performance in frequency extremes. Tight bass and crisp treble compared to other 845 SET amps with higher power ratings. And you get the dynamic, light, airy midrange that 845 tubes are known for. The soundstage is immersive and delivers an unbelievably satisfying listening experience.
This latest Carissa edition is a Copper Reference which means that it is wired using only continuous cast copper and is fitted with Art Audio's Silver Foil Coupling Capacitors. It also has our MKII standard power supply and transformers which are extraordinarily quiet.
Works best with speakers that have an SPL rating of 87dB or higher for music.
