Structure and Functioning
The Sonata stereo integrated tube amplifier is based on an EL34 push-pull design with great circuit integrity and superior transformer craft, running in pure class-A configuration up to 20 Watts of output power before changing into AB-mode up to 35 Watts of full output power. The case is precision made from massive high-density plywood in the best tradition of Austrian craftsmanship and finished with a high quality black timber stain (please note Makassar veneer no longer available). The engraved front plate and hole-pattern top plate are made of brushed stainless steel. Thus the overall appearance is very harmonic, both of traditional and modern design. Together with the in-house advanced expertise in transformer manufacture and circuit design of the WLM-ACOUSTIC team, this cooperation reflects in a true “made in Europe”
origin and is a destination piece of exclusive tube audio. Every Sonata stereo integrated tube amplifier is proudly hand-made and carefully tested, inspected and packaged before making its journey to our highly-valued and
satisfied customers. Sonata with gold-plated front- and top plates are available upon request (surcharge).
The Sonata stereo integrated tube amplifier combines the finest sonic attributes of classic tube amplification such as midrange warmth, rich tonal character, smooth high frequency resolution and rock-solid bass response, realistic dynamic range and clarity to enhance the listener’s emotional involvement with the music. That allows all the nuances of the music to emerge with remarkable coherence and integrity like finely tuned musical instruments.
