The Time Machine is a stereo (two-channel) amplifier rated at 9 watts per channel into 8 ohms. It is comprised of two main stages: the input stage and the output stage. The input stage can have a big impact on the sound quality of an amplifier, and good quality driver vacuum tubes should be used. This is why some of the best current production 6SN7’s are included. The output stage of the Time Machine is a standard self-biasing setup that, whilst not giving maximum output, gives maximum reliability. It also avoids the use of silicon diodes in the bias network. This is then coupled to custom wound output transformers (the heart and soul of every valve amplifier). Every output transformer is painstakingly wound by myself to exacting specifications. The TM300B output transformers are wound with 18 layers of parallel 0.25mm secondary windings interleaved within the primary windings to offer a level of detail and micro detail only found in very few amplifiers.

The Time Machine represents a state of the art “Low-Tech” high-end vacuum tube amplifier that is affordable, and can be used to glorify the beauty and passion of recorded music in one's home.
