• ANKORU

    The ANKORU is a true, fully balanced design, supplied as a pair of mono amplifiers. They utilise the finest components including Audio Note (UK) tantalum resistors, a mix of Cerafine and high grade electrolytic capacitors, our own IHiB double C-core output transformers and fully balanced 1:3 input transformers for the 600 Ohm balanced XLR inputs.

     

    They use a similar circuit design and topology to the legendary Audio Note (UK) GAKU-ON amplifiers. However, where the GAKU-ON power amplifiers use silver wherever possible, such as for all transformer windings, the ANKORU/II instead use copper.

     

    The circuit is fully transformer coupled - once again using our own superb custom transformers - and each amplifier uses a 6V6GT to drive a pair of 211 output triodes in parallel single ended configuration to produce a devastating 45 watts of pure class A triode power.

     

    As one would expect, the amplifiers are valve rectified, using a pair of the highly regarded 5R4WGB valves per chassis.

     

    They have been specifically engineered for sonic performance rather than technical specification, and fulfil all Audio Note (UK) Level 3 criteria: 

     

    • Pure Class A operation
    • Zero Negative Feedback
    • Single Ended Output Stage Valve Rectification
    • Directly Heated Triode operation
    • Materials and component quality
    • FACTS
