  1. Experts in tube technology, Octave, have launched their very first single-ended amplifier. The V16 Single-Ended has a range of high-end elements as well as an integrated headphone amp. Through a dedicated development process, the V16 Single-Ended combines Octave’s signature features of powerful dynamics, low noise and incredible stability. The component also achieves a 100 kHz bandwidth spec, something previously thought impossible in single-ended amplifiers. Octave’s decision to create a single-ended amplifier with their specially developed technology is that the circuitry is desirable for its natural audio reproduction. The technology offers clarity and sonic benefits, making them perfect for high-efficiency loudspeakers and headphones. The single ended design has a naturally harmonic sonic signature, meaning that there is an extremely lucid midrange with no crossover distortion. Designing the V16 did not come without it’s challenges, as single-ended topology has known limitations. Level reduction in the bass and high frequencies, limited bandwidth issues, high residual noise in loudspeaker output and high temperatures during high-current in Class-A operation all had to be tackled. After careful research and testing, Octave managed to overcome these barriers. The V16 remains linear at 10Hz, the bandwidth has been extended from 10Hz to 100 kHz, hum is reduced by specially placed electronic stabilization circuits and utilises Octave’s Ecomode technology and automatic adjustment in Class-A mode to keep the amplifier from overheating. The component made its public debut at this year’s High End Show in Munich. The integrated amplifier will be available in the UK from Elite Audio and is set to retail at £7,495. Features & Technical Specifications: Inputs: 3 (2 x RCA Line, 1 x XLR Line) Frequency response: 20Hz – 100kHz/-3dB Loudspeaker Output Power: 2 x 8W @ 4 Ohm Headphone Level: 3V/8V Headphone Impedance: 15 – 600 Ohm Dimensions: 22 x 33 x 33 cm / 8.7” x 13” x 13” (W x H x D) Weight: 19.1 kg / 42 lbs Tube fitting: KT 120 (standard) Alternatively: KT 150, KT88, 6550, EL34 Features: Connection for OCTAVE Black Box, Remote Control (for volume), Pre-Out optional Available Finishes: Metallic Black, Ocean Blue and Ice Grey Elite Audio are the official UK distributor for Octave.

  3. MRE 220 RRP: £15,995 HP 700 RRP: £10,390 Octave's latest amplifier combination was recently put to the test by Tom Frantzen for Stereo Magazine. The HP 700 Modular Pre-amp and the MRE 220 Monoblocks were tested together, with impressive results. The Octave range has been a favourite of Stereo Magazine for many years according to Frantzen, so the bar was already set pretty high for the HP 700 and MRE 220. Frantzen starts out by squashing the claim that rock and tubes do not go together. In fact, he even goes as far to say that the combination of these two is a must. "AC/DC's 'Back in Black' for instance, leaves the entire room with mouths agape. Stunning!" Trailed with two different sets of loudspeakers (DALI Epicon 6 and Bowers & Wilkins 802 D3), the Octave duo managed to fill the room and produce an engaging soundstage with both. Even with more compact speakers, Frantzen claims that the results will still be as spectacular. "Clearly using the best possible amp technology is the only way to exploit the full potential of any speakers." Every genre was tested from classical and pop, to rock and indie and an incredible sound was achieved every time. "These amps can simply do everything..." Both components received a 100% Sound Quality rating along with a "Very Good" Price/Performance rating. The full review can be read here.

  5. RRP: £4,200 The Octave Audio V40 SE integrated amplifier, has been Highly Commended by Hi Fi News magazine, gaining a sound quality score of 83%. Elite Audio became Octave Audio's official UK distributor in 2015. Hi-Fi News were then eager to try out their products. "Chunky as it looks, the V40 SE is the baby of Octave’s integrated amp range." Although it may look intimidating, the V40 SE is a user-friendly amplifier that creates a powerful soundstage that doesn't over-exaggerate the details in the music. It remains stable no matter what is played, all the way down to a 2 Ohm load. Although the tubes on this amplifier are not auto-biased, manual biasing allows users to set the amplifier up just how they want it. The integrated amplifier was tested along with Octave Audio's Black Box, a device created by Octave Audio to ensure that all of their amplifiers work with any loudspeaker, as well as adding extra reservoir capacitance to the power supply. "With orchestral music, the V40 SE could deliver a fine sense of scale and power." A range of music from classical to rock was tested, and Hi-Fi News found that the unique details of each genre were picked up by the V40 SE with ease. Atmosphere was created in the room with every track. This amplifier is a "Second Edition" (hence the SE) and has a new 'Ecomode' function to ensure that the amplifier functions in an environmentally friendly way. Hi-Fi News' final verdict claimed that Octave Audio was a brand that must be heard, along with the V40 SE integrated amplifier. Want to try the Octave Audio V40 SE integrated amplifier on your hi-fi setup? We offer a 30-day, no-risk trial on all of our products to allow you to experience the components in your own listening environment.
