The Soulshine2 MKII Pre-Amplifier’s innovative design efficiently utilises tubes to convey an exceptional listening experience. The pre-amp features two directly coupled stages in an intelligent circuit, delivering a remarkable sense of emotion. It offers connections for 4 line inputs, utilising pure silver PTFE for all signal connections inside the housing. With a complete double mono construction and an external double mono power supply, the Soulshine2 ensures optimal performance. It includes a 48-position volume switch with a display, providing precise control and flexibility. The pre-amp's aluminium housing components range from 2 to 12mm thick, contributing to its exceptional detail, plasticity, and soundstage. The Soulshine2 exhibits tube virtues without any noise, producing lifelike vocals, fluid strings, and authentic electric guitar sounds. Its outstanding harmony between silence and dynamics and an immersive soundstage further enhance the listening experience.
The E3 Single-Ended Class A Stereo power amplifier aims to provide an unrivalled audio experience that is central to all VALVET amplifiers. Its goal is to deliver music in its purest form, free from any distortion or manipulation, making it a truly sensory-stimulating experience. With a well-designed circuit board, minimal signal paths, and high-quality components, the E3 ensures that your favourite music reaches you directly, promising long-term pleasure and satisfaction.
The Valvet E3 delivers 12 watts into 8 Ohms, which may initially seem modest. However, it can handle even demanding speakers due to its robust power supply. If you prioritise sound quality over volume, the E3 power amplifier is an excellent choice.
Operating in Single-Ended Class-A mode, the Valvet E3 employs only one transistor in the output stage. VALVET believes that using multiple transistors in parallel, often found in higher-output amplifiers, can compromise sound quality. The Valvet E3 is built with premium components, including a substantial 500 VA toroidal transformer with separate windings for each channel, discrete Op-Amps, pure silver wiring, WBT NextGen Hardware, and Alto Extremo feet, ensuring mechanical and energetic harmony to deliver pure music.
