I have a mint pair of Veloce Lithio Series Saetta Monaural Amplifiers for sale with 2.5 years still left on the warranty. These are really magnificent sounding mono blocs with a lot of power and black background because of their battery isolation. And they look as great as they sound! Contact Scott at firstname.lastname@example.org or (972)754-8359 with any questions.
There is a MKII version of these amps and these can be upgraded directly from Veloce for about $1500. This is what Veloce said about the upgrade; The Mk.II upgrades are largely internal architecture resulting in shorter signal and power paths, improved layout etc. but there is an improvement in performance as a result.
The Veloce Lithio™ Series Saetta Monaural Amplifiers are here. Consistent with our design philosophy, the Saetta employs our Hybrid Clean Power™ supply ensuring that only pure DC sourced from batteries touches the audio circuits. Immune from the noise that plagues our AC grid and supremely stable, the Saetta will drive any speaker to its maximum sonic potential.
Hybrid is a word much used these days, for better or worse. The Saetta is a hybrid in the best sense of the word. Taking full sonic advantage of the 6H30 tube (powered by our DC supply) for the driver stage, we put the glory of tubes right where it belongs – front and center! This stage is transformer coupled to a super efficient solid-state output to complete this powerhouse. The result is an amplifier with finesse and serious muscle (320 watts into 8 ohms / 400 watts into 4 ohms) that is stable into any load 2 ohms or greater. The sonic beauty of tubes shines across the musical spectrum, particularly in the midrange and high frequencies. The solid-state output stage takes care of business, controlling bass by virtue of a prodigious damping factor and huge current delivery.
The power of the Saetta, as with all Veloce Audio products, is not limited to the audio system only. There is another kind of power to consider. In this case we are referring to AC power usage. Power savings is on everyone's mind today. No wonder given the current attention focused on efficient LED lighting and low draw appliances. Why not high-end audio gear, we ask?
