Octave is the brand of valve electronics that remains my first choice. Octave is virtually unrivaled in various respects - durability, electric safety, user-friendly design and sound quality.
- The V80 SE's approach is a warm and smooth one....
- The charm of female voice is better reproduced on the V80 SE. This is the first valve integrated amplifier with KT150 power tubes to offer a sound resembling that of single-ended 300Bs or 845s.
- The V80 SE offers contrasting tone colours and wide dynamic range. Music has a perfect, constant flow. Musical instruments are precisely in place.
- The V80 SE can be improved by partnering with Octave's Black Box or Super Black Box. I would expect to hear how far it can go.
