€99,000.00Prijs

De 300b buis is voor vele muziekliefhebbers een van de mooiste buizen. Normaal blijft hij altijd een beetje achter in het laag, maar deze vernieuwde versie is echt ongekend. Je hebt nog nooit een zo'n krachtige weergave gehoord van 2 300b buizen per kanaal, echt ongelooflijk. En tegelijk de typerende Kondo sound projecteert in de ruimte.

    Features

     

    • New Generation original OPT for optimized 300B bass extension and vocal fidelity
    • Improvements over classic 300B amplification circuit plus modern features
    • Dual GZ34 rectification and strengthened power supply design
    • New flagship silver signal capacitors and parts (applied also to Kagura, G-1000 and GE-10)

     

    Circuit Configuration

     

    Input stage is plate follower and direct connection cathode follower by 6072. Classic type phase inverter circuit is chosen for good balance of naturalness. 300B power tubes are fully driven with low impedance by 6CG7 in parallel configuration.
    By suppressing overall NFB to only 2 dB, a new level of dynamic and low distortion is achieved. Sound quality is also improved through adding high quality resistors in combination with the VR of hum balancing circuit. 300B output stage is self-biasing circuit. This help owner to replace various kind of vintage 300B without stress.
    Smart modular design and shortest wiring set good foundation for Gakuoh II's long durability with good sound.

     

    Ideal Power Supply

     

    High sound purity is obtained through independent rectification circuits for both amplification stage and output stage. Decoupling capacitors are installed close to each ripple filters to form clean signal loops. This design strongly reduced the inter-stage interference to minimum.
    Using 2 pieces of rectifier tubes in parallel raise instantaneous current performance of the output stage. The rectifier tube is chosen with sound quality as prime concern. Independent power transformers are used to source clean high current to the heaters of the rectifier tubes.

     

    High Grade Parts

     

    Based on a full copper chassis, all premium grade parts are employed through listening tests. New design silver output transformers using in-house winding technique, Kagura generation silver signal capacitors, silver lead resistors, internal silver wiring materials SSW (silk silver wire), Ls-41 flagship interconnect, low vibration molded power transformer are all applied. All parts, including C and R, are placed at their optimized position.
