SOLD

Very good condition. No box. Used.

Product Description

“The line of Meishu integrated 300B amplifiers are essentially our best selling products, at least until the Cobra hits the streets, which given the current size of the order book may take a while longer! The Meishu does bridge, if that is what you can call it, between the OTO/M2 and the Level 3 separates, but it really was always meant to be a relatively cost efficient way to enter the realms of truly high quality no-feedback triode amplification, and to provide an introduction in that regard.

The standard Meishu came in very early in 1994 and has remained largely unchanged, apart from a change in 1997/1998 from the 6X4R to the 6X5, plus upgrades to the output transformer core quality over the years. The Silver version came in when we sourced C-cores made from Swedish steel in 1997/1998, the Silver was then upgraded to the better Japanese IHiB core material we sourced in 2003/2004 and the Silver Signature version came in around the same time using the better SHiB C-cores.

Well, the 300B is of course the classic power triode and if used correctly is both great sounding and very reliable, we are fortunate in that the Chinese make such good versions of them, we use the Psvane standard 300B in all the Meishus [because] for the cost it is by far the best sounding and most reliable of the 300Bs in our experience. No changes planned for now, it will be at least 12 – 18 months before we would even look at changes, there is so much else going on that needs finishing.”
