All-Tube Amps with Intense Dynamics and Customized Tuning Options

Bob Carver's American-Made  Black Beauty Monoblocks Effortlessly Drive Even the Most Demanding Speakers

The new Bob Carver Black Beauty reference monoblocks are some of the most unique all-tube amplifiers ever made. Designed by the legendary Bob Carver and hand-built in Lexington, Kentucky, these 305-watt Black Beauties are the ultimate reference tube amplifiers. All point-to-point hand-wired, the Beauties will grab hold of any loudspeaker in the world and produce the most organic, musical presentation you have ever heard. These uniquely engineered amps offer tremendous power, but without the hassles usually associated with older tube designs.

Perfectly matched tubes? Not necessary! Negative feedback? It’s switchable for a classic tube-amp sound or a modern tube circuit sound! Biasing? It’s simple and tunable to your tastes and speakers! Replace tubes every year? Nope! The new Tung-Sol KT120s run so much cooler than the tubes of a normal amp, they should last for years. Plus, super high-resolution bandwidth of 2Hz to 85kHz. These amplifiers have been continuously playing in our shop, and honestly, no words can accurately capture the extension, soundstaging, natural overtones, and subtle nuances they deliver. These are simply the most fun you can have with thirteen grand. And isn’t that what being an audiophile is all about? We encourage you hear them for yourself! 100% Money Back Guaranteed!
