Basie is our 40W/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.
If you are looking for the ultimate listening experience, Basie can be built with a pair of Lundahl LL1679PP output transformers. These are the same OPT's used in our model Buddy 120W mono block and as an option for our model Elvis stereo 60W/CH amp.
A choice of woods for the chassis as well as different colored anodized plates are available.
Basie is available with the following options:
a TAPE/SOURCE switch or remote volume control
Basie is build to order and can be wired for 120VAC 60Hz or 220-240VAC 50Hz and will take around 4-6 weeks to complete and ship.
If you wish to return the unit, a 15% restocking fee will apply and the shipping cost for this will be on your account. The time limit is 1 month from date of shipping for returns. For more details, please see our terms and conditions.
This Basie is built with an African Padauk chassis and black anodized front and top plates
In honor and memory of David Bond, a friend and fellow audio enthusiast who suggested the name Basie for this amp
