The Cary Audio Xciter Integrated - Five (5) watts per channel in pure Class A Triode (10 watts per channel KT-88's), integrated stereo amplifier, three (3) switched RCA stereo inputs per channel, sub woofer outputs, one for each channel.
Vacuum tubes in each channel consist of one (1) 12AX7A (dual triode) for the input gain and for the driver stage, and two (2) 6L6GC output power tubes. Filaments of the 12AX7 stages are direct heated with filtered and regulated 12 VDC for lower noise performance.
The first section of 12AX7A provides the low level preamp gain stage, and the second section provides the phase inverter and differential driver stage. Both sections of the 12AX7A are operating in Class A with minimal feedback.
The 6L6GC output tubes are configured as triodes and operate in a Class A push-pull configuration. Frequency response at full-rated output power is from 17 Hz to 23 kHz with less than two percent total harmonic distortion.
