During this time we have continued with research and development to further refine the musicality of the amplifiers, as well as offering both a Standard and Enhanced version of the design.
The Standard version has carbon film resistors and an RC couple gain stage:
The Enhanced version has tantalum film resistors, a choke loaded LC couple gain stage and enhanced psu choke:
Both versions feature 6111wa NOS military twin triode valves in the gain stage, Duelund Coherent Audio copper foil coupling capacitors, and the common SJS design elements:
- Single Ended circuit topology
- Pure Class A operation
- Zero negative feedback
- Valve rectification and choke-input HT power supply
- Custom made HT T-network power supply capacitors with silver leads
- Point-to-point circuit wiring without PCBs
- Hand built
- PTFE board for component mounting
- High quality components throughout
- Custom made aluminium chassis
Each amplifier comes with 2 years parts a labour warranty, except for the valves which have a 6 month warranty.
SJS Arcadia amplifiers are available from Definitive Audio in Nottingham.
