Piccolo – Mk3 18W per channel SET amplifier
This Ex-demo’ Piccolo Mk3 SET valve amplifier is in ‘as new’ condition and is being sold due to the refurbishment of our listening rooms in our offices in Belgium. It has a lovely smooth ‘valve’ sound and plenty of power to drive our Sibelius SG, CG or ‘P’ loudspeakers. Value for money, there’s nothing we know of to beat it.
The new Piccolo Mk3 is a stereo amplifier designed for those who like the sound of a Single Ended amplifier, but built as an integrated amplifier for simplicity and convenience of use.
The Piccolo employs a pair of the powerful, dynamic and silky sounding KT90’s running in Single Ended mode, to help ensure uncoloured reproduction and true sound.
Driven by 2 x 6N8/6SN7 octal valves plus a smooth valve rectified, choke filtered power supply, this amplifier is extremely low in hum and noise, even the input valve’s heaters are now DC powered.
Hand built “point to point” wiring and employing our in house hand wound output transformers, this amplifier gives a deep, saturation free output of a powerful 18 watts per channel.. With a total distortion of only 0.8% and a fabulous frequency response of 18Hz-
