Default Contan Audio from Melbourne Aus, any info?


I purchased this KT88 based power amp from a HiFi shop back in the late 90's. I had an article on it from a mag but have lost it.

All i know is....its 70wpc, made in Melbourne Australia and the plate is 24k gold.

Anyone have more info on Contan audio in general?

Picture was taken from a b/berry so apologies in advance!

AFAIK, Contan made valve amps and kits for a few years in Melbourne, Australia, in the 1990's and then went out of business.

Thanks Glenn.

Makes sense. Its pretty well made for low volume production and has certainly been reliable.

Gone the way of so many boutique HiFi businesses. Bit like the wine industry...How do you make a small fortune? Start with a large one!
