The Audio Note Ongaku amplifier started life in the late Eighties, it soon became legendary and was undoubtedly largely responsible for the resurgence of interest in the ‘arcane’ use of single ended output stages, both thanks to its exceptional sound and a price tag that redefined the upper levels of hi end audio.

The Ongaku has evolved substantially since these times and now uses transformer coupling between input and output stages (instead of capacitor coupling used in the original). As befits its range topping status the transformers are completely silver wound and responsible for a large percentage of the cost increase over the Tomei featured above. As you’d expect the rest of the components are similarly uncompromising, with larger Tantalum resistors and Black Gate capacitors used throughout. The chassis is available with either brushed copper, piano black or aluminium top plates.
