We are thrilled to announce that Ojas is now the exclusive North America distributor of Sun Audio.
Since 1989, the Sun Audio SV series has been an iconic range of Single Ended Triode amplifiers. You would be hard pressed to find a list of the top SET amplifiers at any time that doesn’t include Sun Audio. The use of Single Ended Triode amplifiers in home HiFi is a concept that originated in Japan, and continues to be symbolic of that culture. They are also an essential part of the Ojas formula. But SET amp options are very limited outside of Japan. Second generation tube amp builder, Mitsuru Uchida, sources only the finest boutique parts available in Japan, including the exclusive use of Tamura potted transformers.
The first amplifier kit that we’re offering is the SV300BE. It’s an iconic SET amp that runs the most iconic triode, the 300B. Am I over using the word “iconic”? Because there’s no more iconic tube than the Western Electric 300B, and we’re offering as a premium option included with the amp.
This is a high end, point to point wired amplifier. The kit includes all of the parts you will need to complete the project, a schematic and detailed assembly instructions.
Working on high voltage tube amplifiers is dangerous and you should educate yourself and take precautions to work safely. If this is intimidating to you, we will be offering a limited number of workshops in our new NYC classroom at 28 Greene st, to walk participants through the build process and teach you about how a single ended triode amplifier works.
I have personally owned several Sun Audio amps in the course of my audio quest, and I have recommended them to many of my customers. This could be the last amp you ever own.
