In a few years Zanden has become renowned for its extraordinary
class A tube amps .
Rare is the amplifier that
can capture the delicate beauty of Mozart's symphony #40. Still rarer is
the amplifier that can capture the explosive dynamics of Stravinsky's
Rite of Spring. Rarest of all is the Zanden 9500 , an amplifier that can
do both. Feel the power...awed by the beauty.
The Model 9500 mono-block amplifiers utilize one
of the most linear vacuum tubes available: the 845. The 845 possess the
tonality of the 300B and the power of the KT88. The result is 60 watts
of pure class A tube power!
The 9500 amplifiers utilize a
unique 3-stage push-pull circuit. An inter-stage transformer is used
between the 2nd and 3rd stages to achieve optimum performance from the
845 vacuum tube. Rectifier tubes are used in the power supply.
Balanced and unbalanced
inputs are standard, as well as an IEC power cord receptacle. A D.A.C.T
stepped attenuator is located on the rear panel of each unit. The cover
is constructed of brushed stainless steel. The front and rear panels are
made of stainless steel polished to a mirror finish and brushed
aluminum. The base is aluminum.
This pair are my own units.I finally broke down and purchased a pair of Zanden 9600s for my own system .The pair of 9500s I am selling here come with KR 845 output tubes and I will throw in two pr .of chinese 845s as well to the lucky buyer of these amplifiers.
