Capitole Amplifier

– When Triode Sound Matches Pentode Power

Capitole Power Amplifier The Capitole Power Amp is not a conventional tube amplifier.

After 2 years research, Audio Aero has perfected triode and pentode matching in power, achieving the exclusive TRAC® system (Tube Relay Amplification Concept).Triode and pentode can now work together over the full output power range, providing all the benefits of triode (musicality and low impedance) and pentode (power and efficiency) amplifications.

This 50 W Class A special push-pull configuration leans on the very musical E34L triode wired, supported all the time by the powerful KT88 pentode. Resulting in higher speed, extended dynamics, large bandwidth, incredible true soundstage with improved details and focus, it makes possible an extraordinary musical reproduction, revealing the most natural amplification.
