F/S FIREBOTTLE MONO HYBRID POWER AMPLIFIERS

Recommended Posts

These mono hybrid amplifiers combine the best of both valve and solid state. They use a regulated high tension supply powering a super linear triode gain stage. This drives a high power low impedance MOSFET output stage providing very low distortion and a natural transparent sound.

When switching on there is a short delay to allow the valve to reach operating temperature.

PC88 triode valves

Input imp. 60K ohm

Sensitivity 0.7 volt rms for full output

Output power 65 watts into 8 ohms

These amps were designed and built by Alan Kendal aka Firebottle, a well known and respected AoS figure and are approx 18 months old.

They have been very successfully used with both passive and active pre-amps.

They are only available because of downsizing both home and system.

These will be supplied with Mullard PC88 and also with a pair of Telefunkens which some may prefer.

PRICE  £675.00

I would love to try these with my ESL 63s - I have a strong intuition that they will work well, because I’ve seen suggestions that they have similarities to OTL amplifiers, and that they are in some way inspired by Croft. Has anyone tried them together?

Firebottle, who designed and built these definitely uses ESL........I've been to his place

Also there are a number of these pairs around, they are not a one-off
