This Class A integrated amplifier offers superior precision and a new level of realism in audio reproduction. The user experience and ease of use is enhanced further with an iPhone or iPad control app. Using a proprietary Bluetooth interface, the app displays your amplifier’s output levels, using real time telemetry information. In addition, all features can also be controlled manually on the front panel. The 65V-1 adapts to user preferences by allowing a choice of output tubes either a pair of EL 34’s or KT 88’s in addition to selectable triode and ultra linear modes of operation.
The 65V-1 uses dual drive class A design to provide the lowest possible noise and distortion. The result is the absolute finest tube sound quality, with three dimensionality, subtleties and superior sonic dimensions that are both smooth and stunning. The 65V-1 uses a toroidal power transformer as the heart of a massive linear power supply, paired with a separate low noise DC tube filament power supply to enhance the pure fidelity signal reproduction. The core chassis is made with heavy gauge aircraft grade aluminum; the chassis also features a large easy to read LCD display of unit status.
The 65V-1 has a dedicated headphone output circuit for optimum performance when using headphones. All Rogers High Fidelity Products are built by hand one at a time, using all military grade components and Teflon coated point to point wiring. All Rogers High Fidelity products are built by hand at factory in Massachusetts, by technicians with years of experience working to the highest Military and Aerospace specifications. Those rigorous standards ensure that products will provide decades of pleasure, trouble free. THD less than 0.5% at 1 Watt, less than 3% at 25 Watt output, 50 Watts peak.
Every unit is individually tested on Audio Precision test gear—the industry standard, and the best there is. Every single amplifier leaves factory with a detailed test report, providing documentation of perfect performance, and detailing the fanatical lengths we go to in building amplifiers. Analog sections of products utilize individual, discrete components and all wiring is point to point. These techniques are labor intensive and far more costly than what you’ll find in throw away electronics, but ensure a lifetime of reliable performance and serviceability. ■
