PLATINUM HYBRID INTEGRATED 5 CHANNEL STEREO

Audion Platinum hybrid Integrated 5 channel stereo is an alternative to an all tube amplifier. Our unique approach to maintaining the tube sound by using a normal tube front end (i.e. tube input and driver stage), progressing to a standard configured mosfet output stage, but aiming to keep the amp musical, fast and tubelike we have made the mosfet work much more like a tube by feeding it into a very cleverly wound output transformer. We have termed this as a Flux amplifier. This amplifier is hand built and where possible avoids the use of Chinese components.This integrated stereo power amp uses a cleverly designed mosfet flux stage to produce 40 Watts output. The chassis is black powder coated aluminum as is the transformer cover. The top plate and badge are mirror finished stainless steel.

Amplifier matching

The platinum Hybrid integrated 5 channel stereo Anniversary  is best suited for use with loudspeakers of 89db or better efficiency. Ideally matched with our range of Proton cables. The amp delivers 40 watts into 8 ohms. Upgrade options are available for this model, see upgrade options at end.

Quality both inside and out

Having a volume control on the front and 5 channel stereo inputs on the rear means that a pre-amplifier is not necessary with this unit, but is advised, and compulsory if you wish to use a turntable . This amp is auto biased. The Platinum hybrid amp comes with 6h23n tubes.

The Platinum integrated Stereo can reproduce astonishing bass and subtleties in music that can not be found in other amps of this price. The mosfet stage gives the power and presence expected from a mosfet amp, however with the trnsformer coupled output stage all of the benefits of a tube amp are achieved without the inherent problems you get with mosfet amps. The Platinum gives solid performance and delivers more power and presence as well as deeper bass and highs, the mid-range is incredibly well controlled. It can be used with speakers of less efficiency but we still recommend 89db or greater.This amp is wired for 8 ohms.

The Platinum Hybrid integrated is built with components sourced from Europe and the US. Where possible we avoid the use of any Chinese component. Our output transformers are wound specifically in-house to our exacting standards and many of the components are either made by us or specifically for us.
