Amplifier Maverick Audio A1 – inexpensive tube wagon




Again with Fischer

In pursuit of the perfect sound, like almost any other hobby, all the time necessary to raise quality (and price, of course) bar. New devices – more previous, more complicated … This can continue for a long time, this process can be forgotten and the original idea – getting pleasure from music. Today I’ll tell you about a device that reminds me that the real pleasure from the music can get without spending many thousands. It will focus on the amplifier Maverick Audio A1.

Maverick Audio – Chinese company, but this is the case, which is called “honest China” for little money when you get a good device, reliable and performs its tasks by 120%. The company has three products that it offers in several variations: the amplifier A1, D2 DAC and “combine” (DAC + Headphone Amplifier) ​​D1. All of them are very good, and I certainly before they “would get”, in the meantime it will be just about the A1.

Maverick Audio A1 is a hybrid integrated amplifier, built on lamps and LM4766T chip from Texas Instruments, working in class AB. In the basic version A1 is very modest $ 199 for the 239, a version in which the regular bulbs replaced by a selected pair of Raytheon 6AK5. I recommend you take the “apgreydnutuyu” version, as the price difference is more than cover the sound quality. Buy an amplifier, by the way, can be directly in the online store’s products .

Lamps operate in the preamp, who concurrently serves and headphone amplifier, chip comes into play when using A1 with speakers.
