The Original and Simply the best 300B, all the others have had to follow.

KR Audio PX25 or Full Music PX25 SE Triode Amplifier @ 6 watts , This circuit with 6N6P Fixed bias is also available with SE300B for 10 watts

image138

This tube has a long and venerated history as one of the best performaing directly heated triodes ever made, it was the British answer to the 300B

Its characteristic sound is a stunning midrange, liquid smooth with excellent low frequency performance and very sweet and extended high frequencies, a personel favourite.

6-8 watts output suited to 93 dB/1 watt speakers and above .

If you are a Lowther Owner you will love this Amplifier, as it provideds a perfect platform for speed and transparancy with no harshness at all.

SE 300B , M19 Electra-Print Standard or Option 1 - Amorphous or Option 2 -Finement

NEW RELEASE SE 300B with E280F in Triode mode for driver tube with Anode Choke Load.

Nano-AT SE 300B , uses a E280F  input tube running in triode mode, 

 Using Plate Chokes on the Anode of the E280F, to ensure the coupling capacitor is always charged for very low distortion and excellent dynamics to drive the grid of the 300B output tube .

The E280F input tube has more than enough drive to enable full output power from a DAC or CD without a pre amplifier.

With only a single stage driver ! coupled to the 300B the simplest and purest path possible.

Featuring Teramoto Finement " Nanocrystalline Cut C core  Output Transformers @ T1.3 Tesla , Simply the Best currently available in the Audio World easily matching Level 5 of Audio Note.

NPA Amorphous Double C core , is our Level 4 Option with outstanding performance. 

Electra-Print M19 is our Level 3 Option, great bass and very musical , an all round performer , flat from 20Hz - 28Khz.

Rectification is by GZ34 for low voltage drop ,giving excellent bass extension with all film capacitors in the power supply.

Charming Music Company - CMC- USA RCA inputs and extra thick copper plated GAOFEI speaker binding posts, or copper terminal speakON connectors.

The SE300B produces 8 watts of output in Cathode Bias for a Warmth and Naturalness of timbre .

This provides unparalleled performance creating a massive sound stage , with powerful drive characteristics presenting a lifelike performance .

Bass is solid and tuneful ,very quick dynamics providing an excellent platform for a lush and full Midrange and Crystal Clear high's ,with the added touch of natural warmth and timbre which is very enticing. 


Level 3 :M19 Electra Print Output Transformers ,in production for over 30 years and have been used by Eddie Current ( Moth Audio ) DeHavilland,Wellborne Labs, Cyrus Brennan,Modwright and many others to great success.

There is plenty of information on the Web regarding the long history and great performance of Electra- Print 


Level 4 : Amorphous Double C Core Output Transformers are excellent at detail retrieval , frequency extension is a real strength for these. 

They have good solid bass, very clear midrange and extended high frequency performance.


Level 5:   Teramoto Finement Nanocrystalline Output Transformers  are the most detailed and analytical sounding transformers I have ever heard.

Leading edge detail, micro dynamics and the all important PRAT are ever present.

Fast transient recoveries are a real strength of this design as Nanocrystalline is a hyper efficient metal, so recovery is very quick from demanding bass notes, they do not get muddled or wooly sounding ,often found in Single Ended Amplifiers with cheaper output transformers.


Midrange Clarity is unrivalled with Finement, as are the super extended highs.

We have chosen the coupling capacitor very carefully with this design to give lifelike presence and warmth to vocalists.



Bass is very tuneful and solid, not just a one note thump but characterised by the snap !on the snare or kick in the bass drum with real presence and decay.


Nanocrystalline metals can be produced by rapid solidification from the liquid using a process such as melt spinning. This often produces an amorphous metal, which can be transformed into an nanocrystalline metal by annealing above the crystallization temperature. - Wiki -

Electra-Print M19

Electra- Print Potted M19 Copper or PSSS Silver Secondary

Solid silver performance:

Silver wire audio transformers have been known for a long time to improve audio response and clarity.  Silver's higher sensitivity to flux change (200%)  reproduce's lower level information produced by the output stage. The resulting increase of the low level higher harmonics  from various musical instruments. ElectraPrint Audio has developed  Partial Silver Stranded Secondary (PSSS) to reduce cost but retain performance of solid silver . Source  Electra - Print 

https://www.electra-print.com/psss.php


Very Flat Frequency response

We Pot these large transformers to fit nicely on our custom Australian Made Chassis.

Jack Elliano guarantee's all his transformers after careful winding and testing to always exceed 25Hz-20KHz -1dB.

Copper secondaries are an excellent performer and PSSS Silver even better.

We as many others have found typical in circuit response is 15Hz-28Khz -1dB and very clean square wave performance.

Masters of Bass !!

See how they stack up against the competition.

Wide Band Balanced Input Transformer option



Line Input Transformer

1:1 FOR 'BALANCED BRIDGING' INPUTS

Typical Application

•   Ideal for balancing any high-impedance unbalanced input

•   Wide bandwidth: -3 dB at 0.25 Hz and 80 kHz

•   Recommended for levels up to +19 dBu at 20 Hz

•   High input impedance: 14 kΩ

with 10 kΩ load

•   High common-mode rejection: 124 dB at 60 Hz

This transformer is designed for use in wideband line input stages. Distortion 

remains very low and CMRR remains high, even when driven by high source 

impedances. The primary is fully balanced and its terminals may be reversed 

to invert polarity, if required. A 30 dB magnetic shield package is standard.
