The v40 valve amplifier combines the latest in connectivity, superior valves to provide the warm sound associated with tube amplifiers and a high quality built in DAC. The inclusion of a Bluetooth receiver allows all your Bluetooth enabled devices to connect effortlessly with the v40.
+ We use the RCA channel on the amp to play records from our turntable, we run it through a preamp... this amp does not have a phono input, you will need a preamp or a powered amp... okay.
v40 also benefits from the aptX Bluetooth codec - aptX has revolutionised the Bluetooth listening experience by reducing the bit rate without affecting the audio quality, resulting in CD quality sound. Matching PS40 loudspeakers are available separately and will be available soon
Connect Tablets and Smartphones by Bluetooth, CD Players and Turntables* by RCA Auxiliary and PC’s and Laptops using the micro USB. The valves, supplied by JJ Electronics are renowned for being long lasting and providing superb tonal qualities. The use of European valves help to produce the warm, rich sound associated with valve amplifiers. The transformers are high efficiency toroidal type, offering better heat dissipation and low leakage current resulting in very low distortion levels.
