Long-term audio pleasure.
The Single-Ended-A Stereo poweramplifier E3 is built in pursuit of a goal that is common to all VALVET amplifiers: the transmission of music free from artefact or manipulation, music that stimulates the senses!
A simple but well-thought-out circuit, short signal paths and the best, reliable components guarantee that your favourite music reaches you directly, thus producing long-term pleasure and satisfaction!

Pure performance.
This poweramp delivers 12 watts into 8 Ohms. At first glance this appears to be a bit stingy, but rest assured that these amplifiers are quite cable of delivering the goods even when connected to speakers with 89 dB efficiency. Due to the beefy powersupply the E3 works fine even with demanding speakers. If you prefer sound quality over sound pressure this might be you amplifier.

Pure music!
The E3 power amplifier operates in Single-Ended- Class-A mode, with only one transistor in the output stage. We believe that the common practice to employ several transistors in parallel required to produce a higher output is detrimental to the sound quality. Pure dual mono construction (2 independent amplifiers sharing one box and one powercable). 250 VA toroidal transformer for each channel, finest parts, pure silver wiring.
