The Audio Note (UK) ANKORU/II MONO power amplifiers are Pure Class A Parallel Singled Ended valve mono amplifiers, using a pair of the highly regarded 211 triode valves per chassis, producing a level of performance that is radically superior to the vast majority of current designs.
They use a similar circuit design and topology to the legendary Audio Note (UK) GAKU-ON amplifiers. However, where the GAKU-ON power amplifiers use silver wherever possible, such as for all transformer windings, the ANKORU/II instead use copper.
They have been specifically engineered for sonic performance rather than technical specification, and fulfil all Audio Note (UK) Level 3 criteria: –
Pure Class A operation
Zero Negative Feedback
Single Ended Output Stage
Directly Heated Triode operation
Materials and component quality
2.4 KOhm, XLR /Balanced Line Level
45 Watts (approx.) per channel into 4 or 8 Ohm loads
4 x 5R4WGB (2 per chassis)
4 x 211 (2 per chassis)
2 x 6V6GT (1 per chassis)
27.5 kg (per amplifier)
305mm (h) x 305mm (w) x 640mm (d) (per amplifier)
AC 100-120V / 220-240V 50/60Hz
Due to Audio Note (UK)’s ongoing research and development program, specifications are subject to change without notice.
