The legendary 845 luxurious sound quality is
presented here in nearly all class A, as the valves (tubes) are
only running at 35% of their rated output. The
attention to detail and quality will reveal the finest
detail of your recordings in a warm musical form.
Everything possible has been done to allow this
superb valve (tube) to work its magic. Forty watts is ample
power to obtain a high volume in most situations.
This means that all of the components and valves are
generously rated to give the ST845 its enviable sonic
signature. And still comfortably get everything in one
chassis.
The importance of Push Pull. Many exotic SE
designs are criticised for their distortion and bass
performance. A glance at the ST845 figures shows
real bass power at low distortion is possible!
The sound quality: tested on a wide range of
loudspeakers the ST845 offers a very unbiased
interpretation of music that only valves can do. The
design is deceptively simple, using very little
feedback, lots of pure copper and heat!
You can expect a three dimensional sound stage,
and very precise imaging is more precise. The
“texture” of each instrument is more apparent.
Why did we design this? Following our very
successful MB845 110w mono blocks, we realised
that there are many people who just love the sublime
quality of the 845 valves but do not need high power
or have the space needed for two large mono blocks
and a pre-amp. Surprisingly 100w to 40w is only
3.9db lower in sound output, so the ST845 is an
excellent relatively small one box.
Summary: The finest pure triode presentation without the
high power of our MB81s. Created with absolute listening
quality in mind. The “ultimate” triode PP integrated
amplifier.

Valued Client Testimonial of Icon ST845 PP

Updated: Oct 28, 2020 ** Full Review at www.audioarcan.com - Blog/Testimonials **

Hi Warren

Spent the best weekend in my audio life listening to this superb Integrated.

WOW, the first and most important quality being is the sound stage.

 

As you know it is the third unit bought from you and every one of them was well design, excellent craftmanship,  with a certificate of quality assurance, and a look that will attract any one.Superb soundstage, imagine a thick wall of sound, all instruments and voices at the right place but with air around them,  same as if you hear a guitar in a room you know where it is but you also hear the reflection which add to the presence,Excellent Frequency response : people tell you that tube color or warm the sound, I have found that compare to the many other amps (SS or Tube) I have tried this is the most neutral

  1. Bass is there, not shy but not overemphasized, I can now make the difference between Fender, Hofner, Double bass ( obvious but the character of the player is easy to grasp)

  2. Finally voices and high-range are not aggressive but well modulated, a pleasure to listen with any style of music

  3. Dead quiet, no hum, no tube rush and very short break time, less than 15 hours.
