Ypsilon Electronics Phaethon integrated amplifier

For the first time an integrated uses an Ypsilon handmade transformer attenuator in the preamplifier section with technology deriving from the multi award winner PST-100 MK II preamplifier.

The output stage offers the flavor of pure single ended designs with push pull power. Phaethon utilizes only three active gain stages two of them with low noise valves (i.e. 5687 and 6H30) in single ended class A fashion, for the input and driver stage.

There are separate power supplies for the tube, output stage utilizing 5 power supply in house handmade inductors, RC for all functions and visible HQ LCD display.
