Bob Carver VTA-305

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 Franklin, Tennessee, the 305-watt Black Beauty Amplifiers 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.
