    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


    NOW WITH KT-150 OUTPUT TUBES!

    V4 Amplifier -
     

    Powerful, musical, and effortless--this is the sound of the V4. As with all Quicksilver's amplifiers, the V4s are all tube and hand wired point-to-point. A bias meter is mounted in the chassis and individual controls allow each output tube to be biased separately. The amplifiers come with KT-150  output tubes but KT88s, EL34s, 6550s, or 6L6s can also be used. Matched quads will work best but are not necessary. The low screen voltage on the output tubes (300 volts) makes them last for thousands of hours of "on" time. The output stage has a separate power supply so that even maximum power levels will not diminish the sound quality.


    REVIEWS:
     

    "The V4 recreates a musical event on a scale and with a solidity, roundedness, and three-dimensionality matched by few and surpassed by no other amplifiers, with sensational dynamic-range to boot." - Paul Seydor, The Absolute Sound
     

    "Connecting the Quicksilver Audio V4s quickly revealed that these were very good sounding amps indeed. Space, delicacy, transparency, and overall musical believability were of high order." - Bascom King, Audio
