Description

The Mars Companion is our standard push-pull amplifier. For large floor-standing speakers or a large room, this is the amplifier of choice.

A pair of KT88 output tubes are capable of an excess of 50 watts output power in fixed bias with a power supply voltage of around 420V DC. Each KT88 can be biased individually.  This amplifier also performs well with the tougher 6550 tube.

    My question: “What does this setup do to your music reproduction as compared to solid state amps?”
    “It’s so much clearer, crisper and the mid tones seem to come through much easier. I can listen to this for hours and hours without getting tired, where’s with my Nad, even though it’s mid tones are good and the sound is mellow, I have to crank it up higher to hear more and that makes my ears tired. I hope that makes sense.” – Waheeb Abader
