Above is the new Legend Audio Triode 200 SE amplifier which uses the 833 A tube.  The cool lookin' center meter featured matching unit in the rear is the power supply while the slammatocious front unit houses the 833 A output tube and it's electronics.  Power output is claimed as 200 wpc @ 4ohms.  The power supply uses two 866A for full wave rectification while a KT90 for driver duties and a 6SN7 for the differential amplifier input are the tube complement to the output tube.  The power supply alone weighs in at 78 lbs. while the amplification unit is 95 lbs. for a grand total of 173 lbs. per channel/monoblock set!   WOW, talk about your "heavy metal".  Priced at $28,000 a stereo pair this unit was being drool on by many from the trade and the press.

Cary CAD-1610 SE

The all new Cary CAD 1610SE is another large output single-ended tube goodie, though this time using the also new Western Electric 308B output tube driven by the WE300B.  This zero feedback design is capable of 65 wpc in Class A1 and up to 100 wpc Class A2.  Availability should be around August 1998 and retailing at $37,500 a monoblock pair.

 

 

 

 

Here's an exclusive very first look in the USA at the KR Enterprise Model VT8000 MK amplifier.  Does it use vacuum tubes?  Does it use solid-state output devices.  Well, umm, yes, no, yes, kinda, you see it's like this...  It uses a very unique, patented by KR Enterprise s.r.o. Vacuum Transducer which is capable of 150 wpc (monoblock).  From what i understand, it's a solid-state device under a high vacuum which can deliver a very large eleven amperes!  There is an output transformer utilized as well which, by the way, weighs in at 25 kilos (that's 55 lbs. to us Yanks).  The output device itself weighs 7 kilos while the entire unit is a whopping 65 kilos (which is a larger then a Mr. Simmons workout at 144 lbs.).  Since the input signal greatly effects the power output of this new device, there are four input sensitivity selections which are .35v, 1v, 2v, and 5v.  Appearing on the rear of the unit is standard RCA inputs and also two pair of speaker outputs to facilitate bi-wiring.  Pricing is set at $30,000 for a pair of these monoblocks.

Shown in the KR Enterprise s.r.o. panorama are the VT8000 MK monoblocks, Goldmund Mimesis 39 CD player, Goldmund VSR preamplifier Goldmund AC*Curator, and Venture La Perfection speakers.
