300B tubes : Trafomatic Audio is one of the very few manufacturers who does really understand the 300B story. As we probably all know, it once started with the Western Electric 300B, a true mesh grid 300B tube ... copied by many, but only a very few succeeded. The reason why it is really difficult to make these tubes nowadays is the complexity of the Mesh Grid Anode ... woven wires which give the true 300B sound ... open, detailed and rich ... very rich. Several manufacturers claim to offer a 300B with a mesh grid, but in reality these are nothing more than plates with some holes punched in... Not even close to a real Mesh Grid. The Emission Labs EML 300B-Mesh is a true Mesh Plate tube, and ...

We, at Trafomatic Audio took the Experience Two Mk2 one step further : This exceptional DHT amplifier is "prepared" for these amazing tubes. You simply need to switch a toggle, and you are there!

Experience One Mk2 is in every way identical to the Experience Two Mk2, except for the power tube which in the case of this amplifier is the 2A3 delivering 4W pc.

Mesh Grid Tubes : Trafomatic Audio is one of the very few manufacturers who does understand how to design for these very special tubes. But unlike the 300B, the NOS 2A3 tubes, e.g. RCA/Cunningham, were never made with Mesh plates. Emission Labs decided to "fix this oversight" and produced the truly awe-inspiring mesh grid tube ... The EML 2A3-Mesh.

And here again, as with the Experience Two Mk2 :

Evolution One implements balanced wood and metal elements giving it a very attractive appearance with a bold elegant and modern look, and is one of the finest products in its class. Single Ended topology, no-negative feedback, Double-C core output transformers and top-notch power supply are just some of the ambitious specifications. We positioned the entire Evolution Series as a World Class product, we supported this positioning further by incorporating additional superior technical design elements : 

 

The Power transformer is a very generously sized 220VA EI M6 design transformer that "dominates" the top plate of the amplifier. Oversized filter chokes inside emphasize the quality construction throughout the unit. Vacuum tube rectifiers ? ... of course : a direct heated rectifier 5U4G occupies central position in the tube lineup.

 

The Driver Tubes are ECC81 coupled to the output stage via Solen fast capacitors. The Power Stage consists of two 2A3 EH gold grid  tubes (one per channel). This specific tube was chosen for increased dissipation capability and better musicality due to its reduced third harmonic distortion spectrum...everything is carefully selected.

Evolution Two

300B

Evolution Two is in every way identical to the Evolution One, except for the power tube which in the case of this amplifier is the 300B delivering 8W pc.

 

With the Evolution Two, and after decades of refining and tweaking our circuits we’re presenting something utterly refreshing. We’re proud to be among few high-end audio companies, that goes beyond mirroring eschewed tube design. Trafomatic is all about innovation and taking the daring steps further into the 21st century, where every little thing matters.

 

The Evolution Two integrated amplifier is all about purity and preservation of the original music material. We’ve managed to imbue this amplifier with unique sound performance ... a performance that derives its audio virtues form the iconic 300B tube ... all while keeping the natural vibrancy intact.

With this amp we continue on the path of exploring our propriety direct heated circuit with no global feedback.

When it comes to the parts, we still offer the best "bang for the buck" : Nippon Chemi- Con type electrolytic, Solen fast  coupling capacitors, Van de Hul internal wiring, tube rectification and  C-L-C  choke type of regulation, All this puts puts the Evolution Two on a completely different platform.

 

Forget about everything else if you’re in quest for the pure triode bliss. We know how to reach Sonic Zen...we've been gazing at its glory ... for a very long time

The Premise Evolution stereo tube amplifier is continuing the legacy of the highly regarded and awarded Premise integrated amplifier, that was inspired by our renowned and iconic Kaivalya monoblock power amplifiers. All the knowledge and technical advancements, that we’re gaining throughout the development our custom, cost no object projects have been infused into this amplifier.

With every year that passes, the  market demands more refined and better performing products ... and we felt, that is was about time to refresh the Premise. As such,

the new Premise "Evolution" brings updated/upgraded circuits and topology. It now delivers 15W in Pure Class A, Push Pull Triode mode, and a healthy 25W in class AB Ultra-linerar mode ... and optionally, 3W Triode into Headphones ! Four Tung-sol EL84 tubes per channel ensure enough energy to drive any speakers in a normal listening environment

The Premise Evolution also gained an all new propriety standby auto circuit, that both saves and prolongs the life of the EL84 tubes.

The Premise Evolution its all about purity and musical potency and, most notably, represents the new era of high-end audio integrated amplifiers, that offer luxury and performance at a more then reasonable price.

Like our custom 2A3 monos and reference white Kaivalya EL84 monos, the Aries Integrated began life as a custom commission. Unlike the two others, this time the client wasn’t a private music lover but hifi distributor who wanted an amp he could bundle with a line of single-driver speakers he imported, and whose sensitivity required little power. Their value pricing asked for an equally affordable but quality amplifier. Thus was born the Trafomatic Audio Aries ... later to be followed by  the Aries SE ... a derivative born of our own inspiration.

 

Description
The Aries is a class A single-ended triode circuit with, per channel, one EL34 driven by half an ECC81 double triode.

The Aries SE is a similar, but more elaborate, class A single-ended triode circuit. It however implements the "king of Jazz" tube, the magical 6L6 GC with "to die for" output transformers ... a rollers dream come true.

 

Following in the footsteps of our special Kaivalya monos, the standard finish for these amps is a modern gloss white lacquer, but any RAL color can be ordered.

Now that in the 21st century the old tube myths have finally been debunked, audiophiles and music lovers are starting to embrace tubes not only as alternative to solid state designs, but as superior performers in their own right.

And, yes ... you can rest assured that Trafomatic knows exactly how to "tame, tweak and nudge" the vacuum tube's often precocious behaviour to create the "all too often elusive" tube sound we all crave .... One that transports the listener on a magical emotional voyage.

The Experience One Reference Monoblock was first designed and introduced back in 2008. Eight years of continued production have proven that this extraordinary amplifier was not only a steady performer, but also a clear choice for many of the most demanding music connoisseurs.

 

The new Trafomatic Audio Experience One Reference Monoblock maintains all the attributes that made the original so special, but also offers quite a few new innovations that cumulate to deliver an even more convincing sonic performance.

 

Over the years, Trafomatic's R&D "know how" was crucial in focusing on and achieving one key goal : How to "get first few watts right". Trafomatic Audio is well known for its uncommon, and meticulous approach to the design of tube circuits, and the Experience One Reference Monoblock follows the tradition of the brand’s unique musical DNA.

 

We are absolutely confident that the new Experience One Reference Monoblock delivers one of the purest and the most musically passionate expression of a 4W per channel SET design ... served up via an ECC 81 in the driver stage and, in this case, Emission Labs EML 2A3 power tubes.

A unique power supply sees a 5U4G serving as a dedicated rectifier for the output stage, and an EZ80 as a rectifier for the input stage.

The world’s greatest amplifiers? The Experience 300B monos by Trafomatic Audio are the company’s first statement amplifier and truly formidable to behold. They are beautifully handcrafted in piano gloss lacquer over wood and laid out such as to provide the shortest paths between components. With oversized output transformers finished in an attractive gold finish, the Experience Reference amplifiers continue the Trafomatic Audio tradition of producing tube audio which qualifies as true works of art. Stunning!

 

The monoblocks run JJ ECC99s specifically developed as 300B drivers and Trafomatic’s new toroidal filter chokes. Each amp houses an epoxy resin-potted 10kg/22lb double C-core output transformer, three toroidal filter chokes and an interstage transformer for 7 transformer/chokes per amplifier. There also are WBT connectors and Teflon tube sockets; a black piano finish with gold transformer cases; and twin tube rectifiers (1 x 5U4G and 1 x EZ81) to output 15 watts RMS from a pair of paralleled direct-heated 300B triodes.

 

Sonically, the Reference mono amplifiers present a grand palette of musical textures in classic single-ended triode fashion. Bass is tight and dominant when called for and the midrange expectedly glorious while the airy treble really does extend into the stratosphere. Imaging is superbly holographic and the soundstage vastly layered and wide. While sonics are stunning, they don’t interfere with the music, so embedded emotions are naturally expressed and the listener is engaged. Amazing! The reference monos are dynamic amplifiers with a firm grip on the beat to convincingly portray musical motion and  faithfully capture how live music flows over time. The reference monos recover plenty of detail, provide very good articulation of vocals, produce a large sense of space and build their virtual stage on rock-solid imaging.

 

Pure and elegant in design, circuit minimalism with very high quality parts preserves the primal qualities of reproduced sound and opens up new dimensions for the playback experience.
