Mini-Mite Mono Amp

Mid Mono Amplifier

  Quicksilver Mini mite 300px wFor 2010 the Mini Mite features a new output transformer with significantly reduced winding resistance.

The Mini-Mite exemplifies Quicksilver's design philosophy--simplicity and affordability. Matched pairs of EL34, KT90, KT88, KT77, KT66,  6550 or 6L6 output tubes can be used with no adjustments, and the output tubes are self-biasing. The power supply has over 100 joules of storage and the power cord now has an IEC connector. The Mini-Mites provide the famous Quicksilver midrange in a lower power package. 25 watts into 4 or 8 ohms.

Price for 120 volt $1198/pair, with chrome transformer covers $1348/pair
 Price for 230 volt $1258/pair.

   " The Quicksilver Mid Mono Mid mono 240pxhis a great amp from a great company, and a super value." Sam Tellig, Stereophile,August 2003.
 Quicksilver's Mid Mono amplifier is a big brother to the Mini Mite. Like the Mini Mite, it is completely hand-wired and can use many different output tubes; but the Mid Mono has a lower loss output tramsformer, adjustable bias, more power and five-way gold-plated binding posts. Setting the bias is very simple: one screwdriver control and an LED indicator. Power is 40 watts at 50% triode operation with the standard EL34s and 45 with KT88s.
Price $1895/pair.
 Price for 230 volt/50 Hz add $95/pair.

 Horn Mono Amp

Mono 120 Amplifier

horn mono 300pxThe 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. 25 watts into 4 or 8 ohms.

Price $1895/pair.
 Price for 230 volt/50 Hz add $75/pair.
Instruction manual

Quicksilver mono 120 300pxThe new Mono 120 brings the finesse and transparency of low powered tube amplifers into the realm of less efficient speakers. Employing only two output tubes, this circuit provides 120 watts without stressing or pushing these tubes to their limit, and with the lowest output impedance and distortion of all the Quicksilver amplifiers, the Mono 120 brings a new level of performance to this power range.

 An on-board bias meter allows individual adjustment of each output tube and, with low-noise power supplies and circuitry, the Mono 120 can still be used on very efficient speakers. The 180 Joules of energy storage provide effortless dynamic response, transmitting the full musical impact of sudden shifts from soft to loud. The Mono 120 has a black chassis and chrome-plated transformer covers.

 Price $3995/pair with KT88s. $4395/pair with KT150s
 Price for 230 volt/50 Hz add $190 /pair.

V4 Mono Amplifier

Line Stage Preamp

V4 mono 300px w"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,October 2002.

"Connecting the Quicksilver Audio V4s quickily revealed that these were very good sounding amps indeed. Space, delicacy, transparency, and overall musical believability were of high order." Bascom King, Audio, February 1998.
 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 KT150s, but EL34s, 6550s, or KT88s 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. A new output transformer coupled with KT150s increases the V4 power to 170 watts.
170 watts into 4 or 8 ohms.
 Price $6495/pair with Tungsol KT150s.
 Price for balanced add $900/pair.
 Price for 230 volt/50 Hz add $240/pair.
Instruction manual

Quicksilver-line-preamp 300pxNew for 2015, the latest version of the Quicksilver Line Stage offers a  simplified switching and signal path. With almost 10 times the output current capability of the previous Line Stage it will drive any amplifier input impedance and interconnect cable with ease. The new Linestage embodies the Quicksilver philosophy "simplicity is the essence of good engineering".

 Price $995.
 Price for 230 volt/50 Hz add $55.

Remote Control Line Stage Preamp

Moving Coil Transformer

quicksilver_remote_controlled preamp 300px"Like other Quicksilver products, the solidity of presentation, that is, dimensionality, imaging, and soundstaging, are quite remarkable." Paul Seydor, the absolute sound,October 2002.

Improved soundstage width and depth and higher resolution are changes to the Remote control Linestage Preamp for 2012. In addition, a newly designed audio choke increases power and dynamics. The internal shielded cable has been eliminated, output impedance has been lowered and the power supply filtering and capacitance have been increased. A precision motorized Alps attenuator is still the best sounding volume control and video pass-through is available on request.

Price $1595.
 Price for 230 volt/50 Hz add $55.

Instruction manual

quicksilver moving coil transformer 300px"For valve boys who want to hear their low-output m-c but not the hiss, this is just the ticket." Andrew Harrison, Hi-Fi News,April 2003.

The Quicksilver MC transformer is the ideal way to extract maximum performance from moving coil cartridges. Unlike microphone transformers it was designed to match the RIAA curve specifically for use as a step-up device. It provides 23 db of gain for any phono cartridge with an output impedance between 1 and 40 ohms and has far less noise than an active head amp.
 
Warranty 3 years.
