deHavilland Aries 845-G

30 Watt Single Ended Triode Monoblocks

"The Aries is a bane for all those trying to sell less for a lot more cash. In my book this is one of the best sounding SE amps money can buy. Frankly, you would be crazy or foolish (take your pick) to spend more money on a SE amplifier. A five star recommendation!" Dick Olsher, Enjoy The Music... more

Product Information 

Introducing the new deHavilland Aries 845-G Single Ended Directly Heated Triode amplifier.  The Aries 845G delivers the superb sound quality of the original Aries-845 and now produces  30 Watts RMS into  8  ohms .The deHavilland Aries 845G is a 100% pure class A single ended triode  zero negative feedback vacuum tube amplifier. The Type 845 directly heated triode vacuum tube is justly famous for its huge soundstage, sweet tone, and authoritative presentation of music. The tube compliment combined with innovative circuitry maintains the right combination of pace, rhythm, and timing.. The deHavilland Aries 845G  is designed to drive medium, as well as high efficiency speakers. he dynamic presentation is characteristic of an amplifier many times greater than its rated output

There is no question of reliability with only three tubes per chassis.  Diagnosing any tube problems that might occur after time is relatively simple. With the on board bias meter, checking and resetting bias for optimum performance  is a real snap. Quality, Value, and Performance, by deHavilland, "Hand made in California with a passion for sound since 1997"
