Basie is our 38W/CH PP integrated stereo power amp using the very popular EL34 output tube with an Auto Bias circuit. Four LED's on the top panel indicate bias status. As long as those LED's are on, all is good.
This amp is a hybrid design effort between Ray Waters, our tube circuit guru and Erhard Audio.
Basie's tube complement consists of 2x12DW7's, 2x12AY7's, 2x12AU7's and 4xEL34's output tubes.
The power transformer is our own design, custom built for us by Heyboer and the OPT's are the excellent Edcor units.
The all important preamp power supplies are regulated solid state for the best performance and zero background noise!
Basie has 4 input selections as standard, Phono, CD, DAC and AUX and these can be re named at no additional cost. Tone controls are also included which come with a tone control defeat switch for those listening sessions where a classic style line preamp is desired.
A choice of woods for the chassis as well as different colored anodized plates are available.
Basie is available with the following options:
An LM4562 Op-Amp based MM cartridge phono preamp and/or a TAPE/SOURCE switch.
Basie is build to order and can be wired for 120VAC 60Hz or 220-240VAC 50Hz.
