The compact TRV-88SER integrated amplifier features KT88 valves (Triode branded) as the model number suggests, operating in class AB mode and ‘push-pull’ operation. A double triode 12AX7 operates the input stage, while two 12AU7 tubes drive the KT88 valves. Hand assembled with beautiful timber flanks, the high quality finish across the whole Triode range is immediately obvious. Dropping the cover of the TRV-88SER, there’s a number of individual circuit boards connected in point-to-point fashion; no mass production here. A steel mesh valve cover is included preventing inquisitive hands from getting into the glowing candy. It is quite resonant by design however, so that remained in the box given our demo room is safely off-limits to kiddies.
Excellent condition. This model comes with a remote.
