Default MagneQuest/Peerless transformers for tube DIY enthusiasts in Asia

Sideways Eight Audio Labs is delighted to announce that we have become a distributor of MagneQuest/Peerless transformers for the Asia market. MagneQuest transformers are "hand built without compromise to perform without equal." In direct listening comparisons we determined MagneQuest transformers to be superior to the premium models from companies such as Tamura (amorphous types), Tango (vintage X-series), and Partridge. Stereo Sound magazine of Japan auditioned various MagneQuest transformers and rated them highly against the best from Japan and around the world.

Default Prototypes - available for audition in the Taipei area

Sideways Eight Audio Labs announces two fabulous audio products for audition in the Taipei City and surrounding areas. By special appointment we will bring one or both units to your home for an afternoon/evening of listening and evaluation.

1. 6C45Pi headphone amplifier/line stage (with separate tube power supply) using constant current source loading, shunt regulation, and custom Peerless TL-818 output transformers from MagneQuest. With impedance matching, it is suitable for nearly all ultra high end headphones such as Sennheiser HD-800, Beyerdynamic T1, Grado PS1000. For the line stage function, the output impedance is 500 ohms.

2. KT-88 triode 6-watt single ended integrated amplifier (with separate tube power supply) using 12BZ7 beta follower driver, constant current sink in the cathode circuit, MagneQuest BCP-16 nickel grid chokes, and MagneQuest DS-025 output transformers. This unit is suitable for high efficiency loudspeaker systems.

Each unit will be made to order with customizable options such as cover plate color (silver/gold) and premium bamboo chassis finish.

Retail pricing for both units will be approximately 300,000 TWD. However, we are offering introductory specials for the dedicated audio hedonists. Please inquire.
