deHavilland Ares-845 Mono Block Power Amps

The Aries-845 is a 100% pure class A single-ended triode zero negative feedback amplifier. The Type 845 directly heated triode vacuum tube is justly famous for its sweet tone and authoritative presentation of music. The tube compliment combined with innovative circuitry maintains the right combination of pace, rhythm, and timing. The Aries-845 amplifier produces 22 watts, and is designed to drive medium, as well as high efficiency speakers. The dynamic presentation is convincingly that of an amplifier many times greater than it's rated power output


And think about reliability, with only three tubes per chassis,  diagnosing any tube problems that might occur after time is relatively simple. Quality, Value, and Performance, by deHavilland , hand built in California  with a passion for sound.
