Audio Note P3 Power Amplifier

About Audio Note Amplifier

 

Audio Note manufacture a complete range of valve amplifiers. Though their name may be synonymous with the likes of the Onkagu, they start from very reasonable prices. An Integrated OTO starts from £1,900, an M-Zero Pre-amp from £1,050 and a Vindicator Power- Amp from £2,400.
Audio Note is one company that has never needed to cloud its philosophy in marketing double-talk. Their premise has always been rather simple — directly heated triodes in single-ended mode with no global feedback. They feel, and much of the audio industry agrees, that transistor based amplifiers are fundamentally flawed because they are a semi-conductor yet live music is a linear sonic event.
Simplicity is at the heart of every Audio Note amplifier. They pay homage to the idea that every component exerts an influence on the sound, so they must each be of the very best possible quality. It is a powerful concept achieved through visionary engineering, extensive research and development.
Refinement is the central theme to every Audio Note Amplifier. They do not believe in applying bigger, louder or more complex solutions to their products. Instead they seek to establish greater value through better sound. They look for solutions in technology, techniques, parts, materials and amplifying devices that can be shown to provide better low level behaviour, as they believe these are the most important aspects.

Audio Note P3 Reviews

 

“The dudes at Audio Note must be into Zen philosophy, because they build amplifiers that are “one with the music!” The sound the P3 single-ended, 300B directly heated triode tube amp produces is so very natural (even if this sentence isn’t). This amp reproduces the music with tremendous body, seemingly without strain.”…

“Okay, I’ll make it easy for you. The Audio Note P3 is one hell of an amplifier. If you’ve got the right speakers, it can seem almost perfect. And if yours won’t work with this amp–well, isn’t it time you thought about looking for better speakers? This magical instrument recaptured the body of the music hidden away in one recording after another. The music was always unstrained and easy to enjoy. So, close your eyes and relax. With the P3, you can feel the emotion of the music flowing over you. Forget the equipment! Just listen. This is music!”
