    MY TAKE: Since 1981 Mike Sanders has been producing well made, dependable and great sounding tube electronics. In a word, Quicksilver products epitomize the term value. The company’s designs are simple, reliable and well executed. Mr. Sanders believes in the value of point to point wiring, eschewing circuit boards in favor of more robust junctions between component parts. The quality of each and every part of the design is chosen with the intended task in mind, and is selected for its sonic contribution to the goal. You won’t see advertisements for Quicksilver products in audio magazines. Mike believes that if you offer a quality product, reputation will spread by word of mouth. This cost savings allows Quicksilver to use top quality parts, and labor intensive hand construction, while keeping their prices low. We think you’ll find Quicksilver designs to offer a unique blend of sonic strengths, excellent reliability and superb value. - Galen Carol


    The Triode Horn Mono Amplifiers -
     

    The Triode Horn Mono Amplifier is designed specifically for use with very efficient loudspeakers. It has extremely low noise and distortion and approximately 18 dB less gain than Quicksilver's standard amplifiers. This avoids the noise and gain problems that normally appear when using horn speakers. The amplifier is designed to sound good at the extremely low levels (milliwatts) that horn loudspeakers require. Many amplifiers actually have higher distortion at these low levels.

    As with all Quicksilver amplifiers many different output tubes may be plugged in directly with no adjustments: matched pairs of EL34, KT90, KT88, KT77, KT66, 6550 or 6L6 output tubes. The power supply has over 100 joules of storage and the power cord has an IEC connector. 15 watts into 4 or 8 ohms.
