V 16 Single Ended Tube Integrated Amp w/ Headphone Output
If you wish to take it even further there are two optional outboard power supplies available: namely the Black Box and the Super Black Box. Both of which are available either in silver or black as shown. According to Octave the dynamic and tonal stability of a tube amplifier such as this is strongly dependent upon the stability and capacity of the power supply. Therefore both the Black Box and Super Black Box were developed as external upgrades in order to provide additional power supply storage capacitors. The result of adding one of these to the V 16 SE is to increase capacitance by a factor of four for the Black Box or going even further a factor of ten for the Super Black Box.
There are 3 finish options available for the V 16 Single Ended: silver, black, and silver/black. In addition at your preference, you can run it with or without the top cage. It is pictured at left with the cage, the purpose of which is to protect the tubes. However valve aficionados may prefer to see the unfettered glow of the tubes.
We now have the V 16 Single Ended on demo. It is made to drive high efficiency speakers and/or headphones. We can provide a high efficiency speaker for demo. Or you are welcome to bring in your favorite cans and take it for a spin. Alternatively we have a fresh crop of the latest headphones for you to try it out with it as well.
