Audio Archon is an authorized Aric Audio dealer located in the Chicago area. This is our demo unit and is in very good condition. Comes with Tung-Sol 6SN7's, NOS 5U4GB and NOS OD3 regulator tubes with VERY low hours!
The Special 6SN7 Line-Stage is an incredible platform for the "take no prisoners" audiophile seeking a level of liquidity and smoothness not found in conventional gear. The parts used are maximized for rich dynamics, ultra-low distortion and full-bodied harmonic content while retaining a "dead black" background between musical passages. A hybrid electrolytic/film-capacitor power supply section, tube rectifier, twin tube regulators and Audyn "True Copper" coupling capacitors all wired using point to point architecture allow this unit to breath natural sound capable of scary realism and dynamics. It's housed in a cast aluminum enclosure and includes a "BENT AUDIO" two button full aluminum remote controller.
20 Db of gain fully user adjustable
4 sets of stereo line level inputs
Ultra-low distortion single-ended stage direct coupled into a low impedance Cathode Follower Gold-plated sockets and jacks used throughout
Tube regulated 300 volts B+ operates the 6SN7's in their power-band region giving the best dynamics and lowest distortion
D.C. filaments used on the 6SN7's for the lowest noise (this unit ia DEAD silent unless there is a musical signal)
