KR Audio 300B

KR 300B Balloon high power triode.  This high power, triode delivers 6-12 Watts of pure class-A  power. Visually stunning (early balloon glass shape) and fully  compatible with all classic 300B tube amplifiers.

This new production tube is very attractive and a great performer, close to the sound of the WE300B

KR Audio PX25

KR PX25 Balloon high power triode.  This high power, triode delivers 6-8 Watts of pure class-A  power. Visually stunning (early balloon glass shape) and fully  compatible with all classic PX25  tube amplifiers.

This new tube is very attractive and a great performer, perforamnce and sound equivalant to the Vintage Osram & Marconi production .






Elrog ER300B

image5

The New Elrog ER300B is the brain child of Thomas Mayer, and with the German attention to detail, this  handmade tube offers more tonal purity & harmonic balance than most other 300B's, so just edges out the Takatsuki & EML IMHO.

With a  thoriasted tungstan plate it is very similar to a 845 or 211 transmitting tube, a hybrid with stunning performance and low distortion.

 It also fits well with the Bespoke handmade philosophy of Nano-AT 

Made By  Deutsche Elektronenröhren Manufaktur GmbHT

KR Audio PX25 or Full Music PX25 SE Triode Amplifier

image6

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.

Also perfectly suited to horn drivers and full range drivers like Fostex etc.

SS Hexfred or GZ34 rectifier option for power supply.

Yamamoto mA panel meter to check current for PX25 tubes.

6922, ECC88, 6N6P, E88CC Family of tubes can be used as the driver , front ended tube.

A new circuit has been designed for the PX25 Amplifier using Constant Current Source Devises on both plates of the input tubes  to provide a very low distortion circuit, with great clarity and presence.

A wide band input transformer is used for fully balanced input option

A fully Professional Design with XLR and RCA inputs. The integrated option is dual input RCA only

The Speakon termanals are a very robust and solid connector in the professional audio arena provided excellent mechanical stabilty and audio clarity .

Traditional Binding posts from CMC are an option.

CMC RCA inputs.

Neotech OCC wire,Dale&Caddock Resistors.

The latest low ESR Vishay Power Supply Capacitors.

Teflon Coupling Capacitors used , simply the best sound,exceptional clarity and very neutral.

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

NEW RELEASE SE 300B Design Electra Print Version due for release May 2019 with E280F input tubes

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.

M19 Output Transformers from the Legendary Electra Print Audio Company Both Copper and PSSS Silver Secondaries or Amorphous  Double C Core's from NP Acoustic's ,Finement and Permalloy %80 Nickel are all options for this amplifier as output transformers.

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.

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. 

Electra Print 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.


Option 1 - 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.

A Metglas Amorphous Interstage Transformer used in this option enhances the performance of this design to keep the clarity and tonal qualities constant from input to output.


Option  2-  Teramoto Finement Nanocrystalline Output Transfomers  are the most detailed and analytical sounding transfomers I have ever heard.

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 !!

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.
