Treasure KT120-Z is back in stock, with a ‘blue’ twist!

The long out-of-stock Treasure KT120-Z is now back in stock for immediate shipping from Canada to worldwide!

It has a new ‘cobalt blue’ glass enclosure now to not only allow you to see the tube glow, but also better dissipate heat when tube is in action. We have done extensive work with factory to improve on tube stability, and apply a very strict selection process, including not only extended factory burn-in time, but also additional round of screening and re-testing in Canada before shipping to customer.

Order yours HERE before it is sold out again!

1920’s True Mesh Type 50 Replica now available

Steve 50 amplifier

Instead of typical tech talk about a new tube launch, this time we have a story to tell about the type 50 replica tube’s birth… by Steve Berger, a long time audiophile and music lover resides in NY:

If you cannot wait to finish the whole story and wish to order right away, get to order page here.  

“Foreword by Steve Berger:

In the early 1990s I got a call from Vincent Gallo. He had seen an ad for a Gibson GA-50 guitar amplifier that I was selling.

When I walked into his apartment, performing delivery of the goods, Chet Baker’s “Happy Little Sunbeam” was playing on a system consisting of a Western Electric 91A 300B amplifier and a lone Western 757 speaker mounted on the wall.

I had never experienced such sound before: Chet’s trumpet was right there in the room!

This was my first introduction to directly heated triodes and my life would never be quite the same after that day.

Another Treasure! – ‘Black Bottle’ 845-Z introductory pricing on


845-Z singleA new addition to the highly popular Shuguang Treasure series! We have brought in a very limited quantity to test market – if you are adventurous and experienced in tube rolling, we welcome you to take advantage of our introductory pricing and let us know how they compare to other 845′s on the market.  Order yours HERE.

Like the rest of the ‘Black Bottle’ original Treasure Series that was introduced back in 2008, this model is the first venture to introduce carbon coating to high voltage 845 tubes as a technical break-through.

Feature:

– Carbon compound coating to quickly dissipate heat generated from tube operation to achieve a ‘self cooling’ effect, plus absorbing external interference

– High quality German cathode material and 10% more enlarged emission area than typical 845 tube to ensure sufficient emission at time of high dynamic signal playback

– High voltage resistance design to ensure no flashing short will occur in operation

– Pure 24k gold coated grid to reduce internal noise and reduce secondary grid emission

– Elegant design tube base and leave no finger print residual

– Gold coated tube pins to improve conductivity, reduce signal loss and improve output efficiency

New ‘affordable and most reliable’ rectifier tube added – Psvane HiFi 5U4G

psvane 5U4G single - largeThis Psvane HiFi series 5U4G is claimed by factory as ‘the most reliable and affordable rectifier tube ever made’. It is a replica of NOS Phico black plate 5U4G rectifier, but maintained a very friendly price tag.

Rectifier tube is probably the most ‘consumed’ tube on a tube rectified amplifier. It will need to be replaced more frequently than a power tube over time, so reliability and price are both sensitive factors for tube amp owners. Now Psvane is offering a new option for tube amp owners who are not only cost conscious, but also sound driven. Click here to order yours.

treasure KT120 quad boxGrant Fidelity has just sourced this new KT120-Z to the Treasure “black bottle” series with our Select quality grade, in response to the many requests from worldwide audiophile and music lovers.

With more and more KT120 based amplifiers available on the market, many audiophiles and music lovers are looking for an alternative to TungSol KT120 (which was the only KT120 available before Treasure KT120-Z) – to get a warmer, richer and lush sound.

Reviewer said: “Hi Rachel,

The KT-120s are broken-in now.  The bass is more than there.  Everything sounds excellent.  I have to finish a Synergistic Research review and then I’ll get on this one.  I have no desire to reinstall the Ayon Audio KT-88s if that tells you anything.  It will be a five star review. Thanks, Mike Girardi

Reviewer for stereotimes.com

First batch will be of very limited quantity. Order now and claim yours as the world’s first group of customers!!
