ARGENTO 16 Watt Parallel SINGLE ENDED
ARGENTO 16 watt parallel single ended stereo amplifier.
Fitted with 300b valves
This amplifier has grace, power and extended band width with the ability to extract the emotional content from any performance.
The ultimate expression of musical realism if used in conjunction with WE 300b’s gives a blend of harmonic rightness and detail unheard with other valves.
Internal silver wiring, audio capacitors, carbon film resistors, power resistor non inductive ceramic coated type.
Large split bobbin hand wound multi section low loss output transformers with grain orientated laminations.
Mono design power supplies (one for each channel)
Non magnetic polished stainless steel chassis.
Mil spec heavy copper track pcbs, hybrid hardwiring design.
Input wiring cast silver as used in our audio leads, from phono’s to input valve and transformer to speaker posts.
The Sentry circuit is our electronic outer power protection for power valves, puts the amplifier into standby mode until fault removed, also acts as a slow start device allowing the valves to heat up before high tension voltage is applied.
