Trafomatic Experience One
The Trafomatic Experience One is the first product in the Experience series. The Experience series is a result of many years of developing output transformers for tube amplifiers. It 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 that Trafomatic Audio established as a de-facto standard for their amplifiers. With its design and sound quality the Experience One will represent an easily recognizable style. It will bring a new dimension to your listening pleasures.
Balanced wood and metal elements give the Experience One very attractive appearance with retro looks, positioning the whole Experience series at the top of the world class products.
High quality output transformers built around Double-C geometry and 220VA toroidal output transformer dominate the top plate of the amplifier. Oversized filter chokes inside underline quality construction throughout the unit. Vacuum tube rectifiers go without mentioning: direct heated rectifier 5U4G occupies central position in the tube lineup. Driver tubes are ECC81 coupled to the output stage via Solen fast capacitors. Power stage consists of two 2A3-40 tubes (one per channel), new, high quality product from JJ factory. This specific variety has been chosen for increased dissipation capability and better musicality due to reduced third harmonic distortion.
Output power is 4W, therefore higher sensitivity speakers are recommended (95dB or higher). Gold plated robust input and output terminals are standard on every Experience One amplifier.
The amplifier is available for every input voltage option (100-120-220-230-240Vac) and is equipped with standard IEC connector.
ALPS volume control, Solen coupling capacitors, high reliability Aluminum Electrolytic capacitors and other quality parts ensure that sound quality is maintained throughout the amplifier’s life.
Available in three standard colour choices of black, cherry and wenge timber finish. Custom colours available at extra cost.
No overt voicing is detectable and the sound is like good solid state black coffee with a dollop of vavle cream and very little sugar – transparent, honest, slightly warm, a bit laid-back. This machine goes no extremes of dimensionality, tone colour or textures. It’s a thoroughly modern and clean take on what a single ended valve machine should be. Srajan Ebaen – 6moons
