Audio Note Vindicator Power Amplifier
About Audio Note Vindicator Amplifier
The Vindicator is based around the classic Conqueror amplifier, which follows many of the criteria Audio Note have always championed. Instead of 300B output valves it features the stunning 2A3 tube.
It is a stereo single-ended triode (SET) power amp built using the venerable 2A3 tube. It features a Copper topped chassis and a zero feedback single ended output stage which is driven via a paper in oil capacitor. The Vindicator produces 3.5 watts and so is recommended with higher efficiency speakers.
The Audio Note Vindicator offers the passion, penetration, and deeply saturated colors of 2A3’s. More elegant, informative, and possessed of firmer and clearer bass than the 300B based Conqueror and Meishus in the line. the 2A3 Vindicator is also a bit less meaty and sensuous. They sound startlingly more powerful than their meager three point five watt rating suggests. In conjunction with the M2 balanced preamplifier and a DAC 4.1 Balanced, they sound wonderful with depth and air, putting a natural finish on notes that is strikingly real.
There are three different versions of the Vindicator available, and are available with silver aluminium or black acrylic fascia. The wonderful Sovtek 2A3 output valves are supplied as standard.
