The V40 valve amplifier from Blue Aura combines the latest in connectivity, with superior valves to provide the warm sound associated with tube amplifiers and a high quality built in DAC.
Aesthetically stunning with a sound quality to match, on first viewing we were simply blown away by the ability of this amplifier at this price point. Whilst the the look of the V40 is quite retro, the features are anything but with aptX Bluetooth connectivity to effortlessly stream music from your device and onboard DAC (up to 24bit/48kHz output). aptX Bluetooth has revolutionised the Bluetooth listening experience by reducing the bit rate without affecting the audio quality, resulting in CD quality sound.
This is a hybrid valve amplifier basically the pre-amp is valve running a solid state power amplifier, it spans 148 x 264 x 215mm and weighs in at 3.5kg. It is, therefore, dinky and clean in its layout and rather lovely to look at. It even offers rack-type grab handles should you need to lift the amplifier plus a protective valve Perspex ‘shield’ in case your hand wanders towards the hot valves. Those valves include two European-sourced ECC82 tubes plus a 6e2 indicator valve that shows the volume level: a nice touch. Behind the valves are two transformers.
To the rear are the speaker connections, power socket, sub out, mini-USB port for the DAC, a 3.5mm mini-Aux socket and a pair of RCA ports.
Connect Tablets and Smartphones by Bluetooth, CD Players and Turntables* by RCA Auxiliary and PC’s and Laptops using the micro USB (*may require Phono amplifier).
The valves, supplied by JJ Electronics are renowned for being long lasting and providing superb tonal qualities.
The v40 will deliver a warm rich sound from all your source devices. Hi-Fi world awarded the V40 5 stars, whilst referring to it as ‘outstanding’.
We are sure you will not be disappointed.
