Volume 9, Issue 4

Home Entertainment Show 2003 – San Francisco

By George Graves

deHavilland was demonstrating their single-ended amps with a pair of Alon by Acarian “Lotus Elite” Signature Loudspeakers (what would Colin Chapman say?). I got to audition both for some time,  the sound was impressive. The Alon’s are excellent speakers with good bottom and airy, natural top end. deHavilland sells a beautiful single ended triode amplifier called the Aries 845-G. The 845 refers to the  845  transmitter triode used to push 30 watts out of a single ended amp. I was very impressed with easy power and great dynamic range afforded by the combination.
