Audion Sterling Anniversary integrated stereo is hard wired point to point using better graded components and & larger Audion wound output transformers (EI96) & hand built. This pentode based EL34 stereo amp uses a small amount of feedback in the design. The chassis is black powder coated aluminum as is the transformer cover. The top plate and badge are mirror finished stainless steel.
This combination makes for smooth transients, good signal handling and tight response curves. There is an audible difference with the Anniversary products, due to the larger transformers and better grade components over the Mk1 printed circuit board models
This Sterling is suited for use with loudspeakers of 89db or better efficiency. Ideally matched with our range of Proton cables. The amp delivers 12 watts into 8 ohms. It can be changed internally to work with 4 ohm loudspeakers too. 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.
