Octave Audio V80SE Tube Integrated, Optional Phono
The Vx0SE line of amplifiers from Octave Audio will be future classics. They perform like nothing we've ever heard, with an absolute silent "blackest black" acoustic foundation for any type of music. The V80SE model can handle the most challenging speaker loads, from 2 to 16 ohms with clarity and authority. And coupled with Octave's Black Box technology, can handle even 1 ohm loads with aplomb.
The V80SE sets a new benchmark for Octave, with a whopping 120 watts per channel output into 4 ohms, facilitated by four KT150 power tubes in "power tetrode" configuration. Like all Octave amps, the V80SE has one of the highest S/N ratios we have ever seen, especially at this price point, at >100dB at full power. With that much clarity and power, you will hear your speakers in a whole new way.
The V80SE's angular cage compliments the chassis' sharp and aggressive lines. The centered LED selector screen provides a simple road map into the unit's operation, but nothing more. This amp looks like it means business because it does.
The V80SE also features 5 line level RCA inputs, 1 balanced input, one tape-loop output, and two sets of pre-out/main-in connectors. An optional Phono input is available (replacing "Aux/Line-2")
Available in Silver and Black finish.
