|Coming early 2014|
Due to the recent release of the Tung-sol KT150 output tube, the Topaz Duo now runs KT150's
KT150 Class A self biasing push-pull monoblocks.
The Topaz Duo is built on two mirrored chassis.
Uses modified Pi wound output transformers for fully balanced DC resistance, and AC impedance, which equals very low distortion and exceptional frequency response. Secondary windings are made up of 18 layers of 0.25mm wire interleaved within the primary windings.
Runs separate over sized high voltage (600VA) and heater (125VA) power transformers.
CMC Teflon valve sockets, paper in oil coupling capacitors, CDM (Cornell Dubilier Mallory) & Philips cathode capacitors, Vishay thick film bias resistors,
English high voltage copper hook up wire and solid copper core signal wire, CMC speaker binding posts.
Transformers manufactured using Australian magnet wire, Australian and Japanese laminations, English and New Zealand bobbins, Australian made covers.
Chassis tops are Australian laser cut 2mm stainless steel (1.2mm SS bottom plates).
