KR AUDIO VA340 Pure Class A

Stereo Tube Integrated Amplifier 20+20 Watts RMS

KR Audio hand build some of the World’s Best Audio Products at any price and needs no introduction to most serious Audiophiles.
The
KR Audio VA340 will outperform all other SET Integrated Amplifier in its class and most above it. Running in Pure Class A, whatever kind of music you play on the VA340, this SET Integrated Tube Amplifier, will keep up regardless. The resolution is simply world class, on the level with that of the finest OTL amps. The VA340 lets you hear all of the transient details of the music. You can also hear the full harmonic bloom of the instruments. These elements emerge within a truly natural perspective—they never run over each other and smear the sound. Very few amplifiers can walk this kind of fine line. As 6moons put it, “It is always ferociously dynamic, never out of breath and musical through and through. This is one of the very few amplifiers that we fell in love with from the very first note. Then it simply failed to ever let go of us. What do you call that?”

The VISATON SOLITUDES Completed...

They really have to be heard to be believed!


The First Speakes I Built (Back in 1996)

Quite Good too!

 


These were my First Real Speakers - The ALTEC 604-8G Duplex - 98.5 db efficient

 

And this is how the Solitudes were made...

The Visaton Solitude Speaker
Using two 200mm Woofers (GF200) and
one Full Range 200mm (B200) Speakers

Cabinets are made from 19mm Baltic Birch Ply
and Built exactly as the Visaton Instructions

As you see they are only semi-finished
because I could not wait for the Audition
so I have yet to do the Side Chamfers and Paint!

The Sound is Really Good and am Very Pleased

 

Eventually I knew I would have to dismantle them and finish properly
So here goes back to the Workshop...

Above is the Second Cabinet
And Below is the First one after the First Few Coats...

 

Probably require 10 to 12 coats with sanding in between

I will also fit Four Visaton Adjustable Spikes to the bases like this...

 

 

Lots more to come here...
