Please have a closer look at complete Egg-Shell amplifiers line  in our offer to find more about. Two of them are Triode circuit employed EL 34 Pentode based amps.

The amplifier marked with the  number 15 has 15W RMS power per channel and operates in class A. The second model has the power of 9W RMS per channel and it also operates in class A. It additionally differs from the more powerful brother by having its power supply system based on vacuum tube rectification. Other way they both using same output tube.

Have a look at both AMP and PHONO side by side for size reference:


Egg Shell Classic range is sporting exactly the same circuit as their Prestige amps but enclosure is simplified to keep the price down. Other way they are sharing the same voicing. The same specifications apply as above. A an example bellow there is a picture showing model 9WST in Classic implementation. The model name is Classic 9WLT.

Important note:

Classic range can not be supplied with Egg Shell remote due to lack of space to accommodate giro receiver module inside.
