Wavelength Audio Custom Amplifier Series

Cardinal, Napoleon and KIR v2

The Signature Series of 300B type products have been produced and acknowledged the world round. The Cardinal has received many awards and so has the Napoleon. All three models look very similar to the Cardinal shown above with various differences in power and output transformers that make the products unique in their own way. The Cardinal (12.5W's) sports a 6C45PI input triode that drives the 300B in self bias mode and the rectifier of choice here is the 5AR4/GZ34. The Napoleon (8W's) uses the 6SL7/6188 driving the 300B using the 274B as it's rectifier. The KIR v2 (25W’s, available as special order only) uses the 300B+ Matrix or the EML520 as the output tube. The input tube is the 12AX7A and the rectifier here is the 5AR4/GZ34. All three models use a grid choke on the output tube and custom magnetics from MagneQuest as well as capacitors from Black Gate.

Corona and Lightning Series Amplifiers

The new Corona series amplifiers are available with the following output tubes that require DC heaters: 300B (6W's), 50 (6W's), 6A3/6B4G (4W's) , PX4/RE604 (4W's) and VT52 (5W's). The Lightning series is available for tubes using AC heaters: 45 (2.5-3.5W's), 2A3 (3.5-4.5W's). In the Lightning series the rectifier tube is the 6V4/EZ80 but in the Corona it's the 5AR4/GZ34. Both amplifiers use the 5842A/WE417A input driver tube. The Corona Enhanced version includes higher grade output transformer and upgraded components. All models use a grid choke on the output tube and custom magnetics from MagneQuest as well as capacitors from Black Gate. These amplifiers come with fixed output impedance of 8 or 16 ohms. The Enhanced output transformer does have both 8 and 16 ohm output taps. As an option you can call and order these with a switch.
