BK Butler's ultimate flagship amplifier design. A100 Monad amplifiers are simply unparalleled in the industry. Single-ended Class A 300B Triode Tube response with over 100W RMS of power! The A100 MONAD is an ultra esoteric and patented design of BK Butler. Effortless authority, imaging and dynamics throughout the 130-Watt RMS headroom range in pure CLASS A 300B Tube response. Over 2 Farads of power supply capacitance (That's over 2 million uF)! Simply must experience to appreciate. This elegant pair is a superlative example of the absolute cutting edge of Tube Audio directly from one of the most respected designers in the music industry.
Many legendary musical celebrities trust BK Butler's designs on stage and in the studio where price is no object. Here's the chance to purchase a pair of A100's Monads at a substantial savings from the current new price of $19,000.00. A perfect blend of tube silkiness with the authority and power of solid state. I have driven large floor standing speakers from Kef and Sonus Faber without issue, as they produce 200 watts at 4 ohms, virtually unheard from a tube hybrid with a single 300B! I am only upgrading due to the recent acquisition of TAD speakers which are notoriously inefficient and demand huge reserves of power. I must admit they still sound incredible with the Butler Monads, something you need to hear for yourself.

I rate these a 8/10, with the only reason is that there is a small pin size imperfection on the top of one of the amps, which I have attempted to capture with a photo. It is truly minor, but I am a perfectionist and want to duly note this. I will include one spare 300B tube. The amp stands and Stillpoints are not included. PayPal and credit cards welcome - fees extra. I will cover the cost to ship these amps anywhere in the continental U.S.
