The Raphaelite 845AB is an ultra high end 845 mono block basic amplifier with
impeccable engineering quality and high definition. The Raphaelite comes with RCA
and fully balanced XLR outputs, 4, 8 ohm taps, your choice of tubes, bias control,
power on/off switch and gain attenuator.
At the heart of the Raphaelite 845AB is a bank of high quality, Japanese steel core,
copper foil secondary stage power, inter stage and output transformers. These
transformers go through a quality multi-channel dipping process to eliminate
excessive vibration. These transformers are not produced, rather they have
specifically designed for the proper inductance to match the performance
characteristics of the 845 vacuum tube. These quality components are what give
the 845AB its outstanding sonic characteristics of being able to amplify the
subtleties of music in its original form, yet drive difficult loads to satisfying levels.
The 845AB comes with an easy bias adjustment that lets you “fine tune” the
current to the 845 tubes. There is also a volume control on the front panel for gain
matching to the preamp.
