The GINREI 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 GINREI instead use silver for only the primary windings, while the secondaries are 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
