Röhren Vollverstärker. 3 Jahre Jung. 1 Jahr Gewährleistung, ohne OVP
Klingt oft besser wie doppelt so teure Röhrenverstärker und Transistoren in der 7000 Euro Klasse.
“They’ve got to be one of the best buys around” – Chris Beeching, Hifi News
All of the Sterling amplifiers are punchy and certainly feel like they are truly capable of working with a wide range of loudspeakers.
“Each Sterling is a winner” – Johnny Darko
Where possible we avoid the use of Chinese components. These Pentode based amplifiers use unique ultra-linear circuits and of course our own output transformers.
This larger output power amp. is better suited for more difficult loads, the KT88 is a robust tube that has a good overall sonic performance
“Overall I was very impressed with the quality and construction at the price”
– Haider Bahrani, Hifi
This Sterling is suited for use with loudspeakers of 87db or better efficiency. Ideally matched with our range of Proton cables. The amp delivers 18 watts into 8 ohms.Our integrated model comes with 5 line level inputs and a straight thru tape output switched from the front panel. Options are available for this model, see upgrade options at end.
Quality both inside and out
Having a volume control on the front and 5 stereo inputs on the rear means that a pre-amplifier is not necessary with this unit, unless a phono stage is needed . The amp is auto biased. It will take almost any KT88 or KT90 or even 6550 tubes (Unit is supplied with JJ KT88 tubes)
The Sterling is a good entry level hard wired (Air Wired©) Class A power amplifier. Integrated option (Standard stereo input is available)
The integrated Sterling is built with components sourced from Europe and the US. Where possible we avoid the use of any Chinese component. Our output transformers are wound in-house to our exacting standards and many of the components are either made by us or specifically for us. We use JJ KT88 and Russian New old stock 6H1N as a driver and input tubes.
