It is ten years since we made our first amplifier the “Stereo 40”. Since then we have made many other designs exploring the wonderful world of valves. In this time Icon Audio has gained an enviable reputation for quality, innovation and value. To celebrate this we decided to embody these qualities in an amplifier that is of very high quality, a little bit different and at a very affordable price.
An OUTSTANDING Integrated Amp!This is our biggest integrated amplifier. It is ideal for someone wanting a very dynamic fast sound. It has a big power supply, big output transformers, and designed for the excellent new Tung-sol KT150/120. And it comes with many features!
High Quality with great power but no frills makes the ST25 fantastic value for money! In essence a simplified ST40 MKIII, yet no reduction in quality, this is our best value integrated amplifier. Features include the excellent 6SN7 and 6SL7 valves for improved sound, and a headphone socket with excellent performance.
Small But Perfectly Formed! In a rapidly changing world it is nice to have some traditional values. In 1955 The British company H. J. Leak designed the Stereo 20 using the new Mullard EL84, and ECC83 valves. It was an instant worldwide success for quality performance and value. These vintage amplifiers can now fetch over £1,500!
For those seeking the ultimate in high definition and smoothness without high power the 2A3 is an ideal valve. The very special 2A3 is a pure triode valve very similar to the WE 300B (1937) but pre dating it by seven years. When designing an amplifier it is not just about using good components but getting the “synergy” right, so music does not sound mechanical or contrived. We consider our ST40-2A3 to be one of the most musical and easy listening amplifiers we have ever made !
A Versatile Affordable SE Solution! The ST30SE is a medium powered integrated amplifier offering warmth and colour in an ultra-smooth way to delight almost anyone who is sensitive to the many harsh and clinical presentations offered by others. The ST30se offers absolute listening quality through simplicity of design and pure “Class A” operation. This is achieved by using a very simple design, high quality construction and our unique transformers designed and manufactured “in house”.
Some things are hard to improve on and that is especially true of the 1930s 300B valve. *Directly Heated Triodes are considered by many to be the pinnacle of audio quality. At Icon Audio we have used all our skills in order to build an amplifier that gets the best out of this venerable tube. Warm, transparent, satisfying. With 30 + 30 Watts of power available from 20 Hz to 20kHz this amplifier is sure to please the most demanding listener.
