Design
To develop an integrated amplifier which has best sound quality, simple and easy to use. True music lovers can enjoy various kind of music from delicate solo to big scale orchestra.

Power tubes are famous pentode EL34, which are first application in Audio Note product. In order to secure a minimum of 30W even matching with low efficiency speakers. Output impedance are 4Ω and 8Ω selectable.
Reference to many classic push pull circuits with addition to our original new ideas, the performance of EL34 amplifier is elevated to a completely new level, combining both dynamic and delicate tonal balance.
Fulfilling the requirements of modern specification and keep Audio Note traditional natural music performance.
New design Push-Pull circuit
The first stage and driver stage are both direct coupling circuits. Pure silver foil capacitors are used as coupling in the output stage. Moreover, we aimed to make the entire circuit into low impedance so that transparent and direct sound is achieved. There is also a newly design circuitry CCB (constant current biasing) adopted in the output stage. It prevents music signal from flowing into the bias adjustment VR and maintain music signal's purity and integrity. Output transformer is UL connection, only 3dB NFB employed to get the best balance of low distortion and good dynamic. Furthermore, Internal wirings are skillfully arranged so that shortest paths and best performance are obtained.
Super High Quality Parts
All parts were carefully chosen after massive hours of listening tests. High grade audio volume, silver foil capacitors, silver lead resistors, SSW silk silver wires, KSL-VzII shield cable, Audio Note custom made ISO output transformers and power transformer. All CR part are carefully selected and arranged.
Big Power supply
The high reserve power supply circuit is constructed with choke coils and large capacitors group. After the ripple filter stage, the decoupling capacitors are further arranged to serve left and right channels independently. In addition, we prepared 500μF/ch in the input stages of left and right channel; achieving high headroom and wide bandwidth sound possible.
