The V8's are truly outstanding amps.  I had the pleasure of listening to these with a variety of speaker set ups several years ago -- as good as it gets.

Is this it with a cage?     How is it as an amp?

LOL @ finger tapes on the violin when showing off your high end audio gear. It at least looks like a decent student violin though with moderately good strings (Pirastro Tonica).

This is from the site I found the image:   


 

Tube Technology is a new name for me. The race car engine-like “Synergy Carbon” amplifier is 100% hand build in the U.K. The Synergy is a single-chassis dual mono preamp, power amp, and remote control system. It is available in two formats:

Synergy PPS – single chassis remote control Pre-Power system (Integrated amp)

Synergy DMA- single chassis Dual Mono Power Amp

The circuit is based on a push-pull ultra-linear design, with six EL34 tubes per channel pumping out 150W into 8 ohms. The unit is priced at $ 18,000.



Looks like the front half of a Ferrari open wheel Formula car.

They are in a darker colored housing and the tubes shine through little windows.


Moth?

This is my actual amp - Naked. I like seeing the tubes.

It sounds fantastic especially with the right tubes in there. Highly recommended if you can find one.

found on ebay...

 

 

Welcome to the auction for my beloved Audio Stoat 01 integrated "amplifier."

Audio Stoat may be a new name to many, but in audiophile circles the name is already causing something of a rustle. 

The "amplifier" is "carefully" hand built in rural Brittany, France by experienced artisans and the quality of this unit shines out from the crowd like a glimmering beacon of aural hope in a sea of audio detritus.

Lavishly constructed from a cardboard box the "amplifier" is veneered in a *prime finish which is usually 75pence extra over the normal price of the amplifier and, put quite simply, it exudes quality, luxury and exclusivity rarely seen in an amplifier at this price point.

In short every expense has been spared and no attention to detail has been taken, resulting in a true highish fidelity product with real pride of ownership value if you like that kind of thing. The "amplifier" is sure to take pride of place on the new owner's hi-fi rack!



Technical Gubbins

The "amplifier" boasts an enviable zero feedback circuit resulting in impressive zero distortion - not many hifi amplifiers on the market can boast figures as good as these!

Output would be a healthy 60w if it worked and the **BOS output "valves" are at least 50% guaranteed Morissons own brand, with markings still clearly visible on one of the tubes.

In its present configuration the amplifier boasts a huge zero watts per channel but can be reconfigured to deliver an even more impressive nowt in ***PPPPS configuration.

The "volume" knob is handcrafted using reclaimed materials which of course should ensure that the green credentials of this "amplifier" are beyond reproach and it is bolted onto the chassis so it turns and everything.

Inside the chassis everything has been left to chance and every component is of the very highest quality. High quality audiophile products such as a metal nut and bolt have been used.

*Packing Tape Brown
**Broken Old Stock
***Push Push Push Pull Shove

Anything made from the sale of this unique piece of hifi audio history over and above the postage costs will be given to a UK chariddy after payment has been received!
 The Chariddy I have chosen doesn't seem overly bothered when i spoke to them, so I will choose another when the auction ends and send them the dosh. Suggestions welcome!

Audio Stoat have secured a world first review of the Audio Stoat 01 amplifier with Hifi Pig ("snoofling out what's hot in Hifi")
on the 1st of April

 
The unit has no plug and no attempt should be made to connect it to the mains or any other source of electricity as this will result in death if not something much worse!! Anyway plugging it in to anything would be downright stupid!!! Don't do it!!

We cannot guarantee that the "valves" won't be smashed to bits but we'll pack them as best we can.

COMING SOON -THE AUDIO STOAT DAC
