Every Detail Considered In Service of Sublime Performance
CL-38u employs 3x ECC83 and 5x ECC82 tubes in classic SRPP (Shunt Regulated Push-Pull) configuration throughout all gain stages for extremely low-output impedance, achieving strong driveability to cope with the most awkward amplifier loads. The use of four moving-coil step-up transformers in the phonostage further enables quiet and accurate reproduction of music recorded on your vinyl LPs.
