"Comunicato di Tim De
There are very few modern designers in the audio field who can claim as much as de Paravicini. No aspect of the recording and reproduction chain has been left untouched, no aspect of circuit design not further researched and developed. As early as 1965 Tim was involved in custom design work for rock and roll bands; manufacturing his own public address equipment, and modifying existing studio equipment to realise even greater potential. A move to South Africa from England saw a further development of his own unique design genius, and the launch of his own professional amplifier product, sold simply as “de Paravicini”. While working in South Africa, Tim had a chance meeting with representatives of the Lux Corporation, and in 1972 was invited back to Osaka, Japan, and offered a job as audio designer. Tim soon put together some very interesting designs for Lux, including the remarkable C1000/M6000 pre/power amplifier combination. One of his own favourite designs from this period was the Luxman 3045 tube mono block. At the time, this was the only mono block design available in the audio field, and backed up de Paravicini’s preference for locating the power amplifiers close to the loudspeakers. Tim also designed the actual output tube for this amplifier, the 8045 power tube. As always with his designs, the output transformer was a custom de Paravicini design. In 1976 de Paravicini returned to England, and very quickly made an impact as a design consultant, initially working with the ALBA Radio Corporation, and Tangent Loudspeakers. Tim was also responsible for the later ranges of Michealson and Austin tube amplifiers, including the TVA10 and M200 mono blocks. Within a year, he had set up Esoteric Audio Research Ltd., and was marketing the remarkable EAR 509 100 watt professional tube mono block power amplifiers. He developed a unique output transformer/tube interface circuit called “balanced bridge mode”, in which all the electrodes (except the control grids) have their own separate windings on the thirteen-section, biflar wound, output transformer. In addition, the amplifier has no overall feedback, something of a de Paravicini trade mark. Technically this amplifier proved that tubes are capable of performing equally as well as transistors in a laboratory, with a specification that included a power bandwidth of 9-85,000 Hz, -3dB, and also proved that tubes are capable of better things than the “retro” sound some manufacturers look for. Subjectively the 509 amplifiers were a big hit. Although aimed at the professional market, several Hi-Fi magazines picked up on the 509’ss, and compared them to the then State of the Art domestic High End equipment. The fact the 509 beat all of the competition at the time helps explain why the 509 is still in production today. the 509 was designed by de Paravicini to have no sound; trying to sum up the 509 is hard, it does not offer the warm ‘comfortable’ tonal quality which so often mark most tube amplifiers out. They are remarkably clear, transparent, with firm realistic bass, effortless top end, detailed and very alive. In the twenty years since 1976, Tim has designed a mammoth catalogue of Hi-Fi and Studio components, both for Esoteric Audio Research and for other domestic audio companies. Currently the ‘E.A.R.@ professional product range includes a tube capacitor microphone, built with a rectangular gold spluttered capsule. A design which easily betters the classic European designs. Tube microphone preamplifiers, tube equalisers, record cutting systems, analogue to digital converters (for CD mastering) plus custom components and servicing for some of the Worlds most famous recording artists. His is most famous in the studio industry for the stunning analogue tube master tape recorders. These units have very special custom designed heads, and are capable of digital levels of signal to noise ratio, with a bandwidth in excess of 8Hz to 80,000Hz! Work for the recording industry has brought critical acclaim. On the ‘Waterlily’ label, “A Meeting by the River” received a prestigious ‘Grammy’ award for its sound quality. This was a mid/side technique recording using a pair of crossed microphones. Waterlily’s microphones, preamplifiers, analogue master recorder and A/D converter were all built and designed by Tim. In 1985, de Paravicini introduced his new record cutting system. Now installed at ‘The Exchange’ in the heart of London, (originally Island Records ‘Sound Clinic’ facility). This is phase corrected, and uses in excess of 1,000 watts of tube audio power, based on the classic EAR 509 circuit. The cutter head is again, a custom design, and is capable of cutting deeper, wider grooves than any other system. The result is higher dynamics, with a true signal to noise ratio in excess of 65 dB from records pressed off a master cut on this system. It is truly as close to the original master tape as it is physically possible to get. Throughout the past twenty years, Tim has worked with many different manufacturers. For London based Musical Fidelity, Tim designed the amazing A1, taking the concept of a cut down ‘High End’ audiophile amplifier, the only compromise being the 10 watts output, albeit pure class ‘A’. Other products designed for ‘M.F.’ include the A470/370, P270, Digilog, CD-T, etc. More recently in Europe, the ‘Tube Scene’ in domestic audio has really taken off. A lot of European manufacturers have stolen both older European designs, and designs from Japanese magazines and journals. Most of these amplifiers are very poor sounding, and terribly unreliable. These manufacturers neither understand the designs or how to build them. They use the reputation of tubes to sell their poor, none original product. De Paravicini’s answer to these companies, was the award winning EAR 859 amplifier. His all new Enhanced Triode Mode circuit bettering the performance of directly heated triodes designs. It provided the public with a real design, from a professional maker. The EAR 834P phono stage was also introduced, and similar to the ‘859 has proved very popular, offering un-rivalled performance per dollar. The particular speciality being the stunning Moving Coil stage transformers - transformer design being one of Tim de Paravicini’s fortes - unlike most manufacturers, who just buy in ‘off-the-peg’ transformer designs or just specify the most basic requirement to an outside supplier. All EAR amplifiers are truly original, including the custom transformer, metal work, circuit printed cicuit board. All the work of Tim de Paravicini. Tim de Paravicini works by a simple premises: If he designs it, it must be a better design than anything else, or he will not manufacture it. His sole goal is taking audio to the furthest possible point of development. Current research is taking him further along this path than any single competitor.

Yoshinos latest model, the 834T is the companys first solid-state Hybrid Integrated amplifier. It draws both on the original all-valve 834 and the spectacular M100 transistor mono-block power amps, and in true EAR style breaks definitively with convention. Backed by designer Tim de Paravicinis unrivalled expertise in audio transformers, the 834T offers 100W of transformer-coupled MOSFET power per channel. A valve-like output configuration gives the noted virtues of valve sound together with bullet-proof stability and reliability not always associated with MOSFETs. Input stages use both valves and transistors, drawing on the unique strengths of each to make this one of the most sophisticated-sounding amps in its class and fully realising the traditional EAR/Yoshino virtues of transparency, complete assurance and, quite simply, accuracy. 6 line-level inputs and tape output complete the specification, with the utter simplicity of two controls making a welcome contrast to the trend for over-complicated user interfaces.

Tim de Paravicini has been credited by many with starting the valve renaissance in England. Tim, who has worked around all corners of the globe, has unique ideas and designs, are a ''clean sheet'' break from the designs of old. Too many of his competitors use old, tired designs to flavour the sound, and do not seek to advance the state of the art. The EAR 859 was designed to be ''the best'' Single-Ended Triode amplifier on the market. Tim as always, was keen to cut a new path through the forest and ignored the week and vulnerable, inferior and obsolete direct heated triodes (such as the 300B). He based his design on his favorite valve, the 6KG6/EL519, developing a new operating mode called Enhanced Triode Mode, or ETM for short. This revolutionary new circuit cleverly tied the control grid (G1) to the cathode, removing the potential difference between the two, and fed the control signal into the screen grid (G2). This gave better, more linear results than directly heated triodes, with the added advantages of high anode power rating, good valve availability and maximum reliability. This was put together in a DC-connected, low feedback pure Class ''A'' circuit, that automatically compensates for valve spread, maintaining excellent, reliable, sound quality for an extended period of time. The proof of the pudding is in the eating, and the EAR 859 does not disappoint. It has that unique valve sound, but without the usual single-ended ''mush''. All of Tim de Paravicini�s designs bear the influence of his experience designing and using professional products, and this clearly shows. Hi-fi reviewers around the world have acclaimed the EAR 859 as, to quote one South African Magazine, ''The finest Integrated Valve Amp we have ever heard.'' In England, Ken Kessler of Hi-Fi News summed up his review by saying ''yes, yes, yes, yes,'' and even in Japan, the world's most diverse and intense market, the '859 has won critical acclaim from Japan's most prestigious hi-fi magazine ''Stereo Sound''. It was honoured so highly as to be nominated for the ''Component of the Year'' (COTY) award, and was highly commended; an outstanding achievement for a 13 watt single-ended valve amplifier
EAR YOSHINO 8L6 Listino ufficiale €. 6.990,00
EAR 8L6 Amplificatore Integrato a valvole con uscita pre per bi-aplificazione 50 W 2 X ECC83, 2 X ECC85, 8 X 8L6
The EAR 8L6 has been designed to meet a wide variety of needs, from the most demanding of audiophiles to the professional seeking high quality monitoring equipment in the studio field. The circuit design uses push-pull output and driver stages, a high quality in-house-designed output transformer and low negative feedback. Tube life is long (and replacement costs modest) and the circuit operates in pure Class A. An unusual feature of the 8L6 is that it can be used as an integrated amplifier or as separate preamplifier and power amplifier. This is selected using the switch at the rear of the unit marked 'Pre/power split on'. In integrated amplifier mode the front panel source selector works in the usual way to select any of the five inputs available on the rear. No connection is required between the 'Pre out' sockets and the 'Power amp in' sockets. In pre-main mode the (passive) preamplifier section is disconnected internally from the power amplifier section, requiring an external connection between the 'Pre out' sockets and the 'Power amp in' sockets. This facility is provided to allow the user the option of connecting a signal processor such as an equaliser between the pre and power sections. An additional benefit is that the 'Pre out' sockets remain active when the 8L6 is in integrated mode, so that a second 8L6 (or other amplifier of similar gain) can be used 'slaved' to the main one for bi-amping.
Amplificatore integrato a valvole 50 W a valvole: (6 xEL84, 5x ECC82 per canale)
The V12, the latest brainchild of Tim de Paravicini, is a completely new concept in valve amplifier design. Forget other more conventional designs - the V12 is a totally "clean sheet of paper" design. The output valves are indirectly heated EL84/6BQ5 pentodes, 6 per channel. The parallel push-pull class "A" circuit features Pentode Mode. This circuit provides superb linearity and very low distortion. In addition, the V12 uses Tim de Paravicini's highly developed Balanced Bridge Mode, a custom ultra-wide bandwidth output transformer, and no overall feedback. The key design goals for the V12 were to extend frequency response at both ends of the spectrum, improve low-level detail, and provide perfect loudspeaker coupling. All have been successfully achieved, along with superb reliability from the low-priced Pentode output valves. The amplifier is perfectly stable into any load, and will offer years of reliable service.The circuit is not the V12's only unique feature; the casework is also unique. Tim wanted a more natural, harmonious look to his new amplifier, something less aggressive than traditional designs with their exposed, industrial looking transformers, hard angles, and valves sticking up in the air. The fascia is rounded, in a half-moon shape, with the left and right channel valves positioned on opposing sides of the top of the chassis. The V12's finish is exemplary, with wood-capped valve covers, chrome fascia, and gold-plated control knobs. The name V12 was inspired by Tim's passion for the classic Jaguar V12 engine. Tim decided to use 6 EL84's per channel in the new circuit. Comparisons to the best motor car engine in the world are valid, for this amplifier is so very smooth and sophisticated. There is very little to give the V12 away as a valve amplifier. Its openness, speed and authority are beyond comparison. Seeing and hearing is believing. The amplifier is 50 watts per channel, has 5 line inputs, and can be connected to any loudspeaker load from 4 to 16 ohms. It is perfectly stable into any load, and will offer years of reliable service. Specification Power Output - 50 watts per channels 20Hz to 20 KHz Power Bandwidth - 12Hz-60 KHz -3dB (half power) I.M.D - Less than 0.5% Output Damping Factor - 10 Signal to Noise Ratio - 93dB (less than 0.4mv) Input Sensitivity - 400 mV Input Impedance - 47kOhms Power Consumption - 200V/A Weight - 22kg Size - 42cm(W) x 44cm(D) x 13.5cm(H) Valve List - 10 x ECC83(12AX7), 12 x EL84(6BQ5)

When Tim de Paravicini does a job; he does it properly; whether it is a custom studio installation, or an affordable phono pre amplifier like the EAR 834P range. With years of experience in design and manufacturing, nobody can come close to his unique point of view and life experiences he puts into all his designs. When first launched, now over five years ago, it was the only valve phono stage you could buy with facilities for both good quality Moving Coil (MC) and Moving Magnet (MM) cartridges. In addition, for a small premium the unit could be purchased with an in-built volume control, allowing direct connection to a power-amplifier. Yoshino was set up in 1994 with the pure intention of manufacturing the worlds finest Hi-Fi and studio equipment: In other words; the designs of Tim de Paravicini. Yoshino Ltd. decided to up-rate and widen the range. There are now three models in the EAR 834P line up: The Classic EAR 834P uses the same circuit architecture as its more expensive brothers, and shares in the same high quality sound through MM type cartridges. It is enclosed in a tough, rigid metal case, and is fully ''CE'' type approved. Our most popular phono amplifier in England. The Signature builds on the classic EAR 834P specification, by adding a superb Moving Coil (MC) input stage, as well as the no extra price option of a high quality volume control. Top of the range, the De-luxe comes in a stunning chrome and gold cabinet, and has extra attention and quality control. For the true vinyl enthusiast. With different moving coil input options, this unit will fit the most demanding of audiophile systems. From Basic through Signature to De-luxe, the performance remains class leading.

EAR 834P was one of the very first standalone phono stages and has become one of our best-selling products. Now the continuing popularity of vinyl has encouraged us to develop an upmarket phono preamp, the 88PB.Drawing on designer Tim de Paravicini's vast knowledge of audio electronics, and employing several of the innovations he incorporated in the class-leading Paravicini 312 Control Centre, a fully-featured preamp and 324 phono stage (both solid state), the 88PB is a definitive statement in valve electronics.Its specification is a perfect match of essential flexibility with cost-conscious simplicity. Two inputs cater for the growing number of vinyl-lovers with more than one turntable or arm. Both inputs accept moving magnet cartridge inputs, while one is also switchable for moving coil types - naturally using de Paravicini�s famed input transformers for lowest noise and highest fidelity. MC input impedance is adjustable internally.The inclusion of a volume control allows for direct connection to a power amp in one-source systems. To avoid cable-dependent high frequency response, a highly linear buffer stage follows the volume control, using an output transformer which provides balanced or single-ended output at a low impedance which can effortlessly drive long cables.Other exclusive design details include a unique high stability circuit for achieving the RIAA equalisation curve demanded by discs, and of course the superb all-round sound quality of all EAR amps is guaranteed.The 88PB: you never realised your vinyl sounded this goo

MC4 Cartridge Transformer An ''Ideal Transformer'' must by definition 'transform one kind of energy to another without loss' no more or no less! We have achieved results for audio close to the ideal, for it will allow the very best of ''Moving Coil'' cartridges to extract the most possible information out of the groove. Most Active ''Head Amps'' have many flaws which inhibit the release of all the possible information out of the groove because the laws of economics and physics prohibits most designers from achieving the ideal, which is wide bandwidth minimal time distortion, minimum noise contribution, and maximum protection from external influences. The Moving Coil cartridge is a much more efficient converter of energy than Moving Magnet but has the great disadvantage that its voltage ouput is not really practical for most amplifier technology to handle it. So if we take its product of voltage times current and transform it to a suitable form for most amplifiers to handle it we then find that we actually have gained an advance over the Moving Magnet in noise figures of at least 6dB. This means that we can achieve 90dB of dynamic range that the record potentially offers.

The EAR 834L line preamplifier is designed to complement any of the EAR 834P phono preamplifiers and an EAR power amplifier or, indeed, any other high quality source or power amplifier. It has facilities for up to five line inputs, and offers a genuine tape monitoring circuit, making a total of six inputs. A high quality volume control is fitted, as well as a panel mounted power switch. Input and output terminals are gold plated. Designed by Tim de Paravicini in his usual robust style, the EAR 834L is the perfect match for any high end system, whether biased towards analogue or digital. The electronic architecture is minimalist, so that the absolute minimum sonic degradation takes place. There are three double triode valves, arranged in a classic 'de Paravicini circuit'. Special attention has been given to the input circuitry. All inputs are at the rear of the chassis, on the same circuit board as the selector switches, which are operated remotely by long control shafts. The power supply is a unique arrangement; a high quality toridal transformer feeds a double DC power supply, that provides the low-tension (LT) heater current, and the high-tension (HT) anode voltage. It is critical in a preamplifier that both the HT and LT supplies are pure DC, and free from AC ripple. This is the case with all EAR products, not just this preamplifier. The circuit is designed used in such a way as to have a minimum life of five years* continuous operation for the valves. The preamplifier has more than enough output for any power amplifier, transistor or valve, and is ideal for driving long interconnect cables to remotely located power amplifiers. The unit is available in Classic and Deluxe specification. Deluxe builds on the Classic's specification with a superior chrome and gold finish, with extra outputs to facilitate bi-amping systems, and a neon power monitor light. *Discounting occasional random premature failure of valves

For over 20 years, Tim de Paravicini's EAR brand name has been associated with valve amplifiers of legendary quality and reliability. Classics such as the 500-series power amplifiers, the 802 preamp, and more recently the V20 integrated amp and the 800-series 'Enhanced Triode Mode' models are among the most prestigious hi-fi products ever made and have attracted praise and awards the world over.Although Tim de Paravicini has been designing transistor-based circuits since the days of the very first commercial transistors, he has never before produced a solid-state amplifier under his own flag. But now, after years of breaking with everyone else's traditions, he has broken with his own and produced the 312 Control Centre, a fully-featured preamp which redefines the world of solid-state just as EAR amplifiers have done for the world of valves. Taking into account the current growth in the number of sources in many hi-fi systems, the 312 offers no less than eight inputs, three of which are balanced and transformer-coupled. What's more, there are six outputs: three each balanced and unbalanced, and because they are also transformer-coupled it is perfectly possible to use both types simultaneously (for instance in multi-amped systems) without upsetting the balanced outputs. This means that six stereo power amplifiers can be driven at once.As you would expect from an EAR product, the phono input also features transformer coupling for moving coil cartridges, ensuring the lowest possible noise, and in order to ensure very high overload headroom and complete stability the RIAA equalization of the phono stage uses an inductor in a unique EAR circuit configuration. The basic amplifying circuit uses just three transistors in a single-ended configuration, a 'valve-like' approach that harnesses the gain of the transistors in such a way as to give sound of unequalled sweetness and clarity. Complete compatibility with other equipment is achieved through the very high input and output headroom of all circuits, plus their low noise. Again drawing on de Paravicini's expertise in the field of transformers and inductors, the power supply uses a choke input filter to give very low noise and ripple, and very low dependency on the purity of the incoming electricity supply: it also generates very low levels of interference on the household supply without requiring any additional suppression components. Simple and intuitive operation has always been a feature of EAR products, and to this end the 312 uses a very high quality and high accuracy volume control with a conventional single-turn range, in conjunction with a unique meter-like scale which clearly indicates circuit gain. Channel balance is maintained to close tolerances right down to whisper-quiet levels. Finally, it should be hardly necessary to mention that like all EAR products the 312 is built to the highest standards and immaculately finished so that it looks as good as it sounds. It will set standards for a long time to come.

EAR890 Amplificatore stereo a valvole da 70 watt (140 W mono) valvole KT90
The 800 series of amplifiers from EAR has received widespread and consistent acclaim from users and reviewers the world over. However, feedback from some quarters suggested that there was a need for an amplifier with similar sonic prowess but just a little more power.Taking as a starting point the circuits used in the 834 integrated amplifier, Tim de Paravicini has addressed that need by producing the 890 power amplifier. Using the innovative KT90 valve from EI, he has been able to offer 70W of clean Class-A audio from the same chassis as the 834. One of the few new valve designs of the last 30 years, the KT90 draws on the strengths of the EL509 valve (as used in many EAR amplifiers) and is capable of sustained high power operation with great reliability. Two pairs per channel are hardly stressed in the EAR 890.Features include balanced inputs (transformer-coupled) as well as unbalanced, separate level controls for each channel, and the option of flexible mono-block operation to deliver 140W into a wide range of loudspeaker loads. Build quality and finish are to EAR's usual high standards, with a distinctive touch of luxury in the thick brass front panel, heavily chromed and polished to a mirror finish. Reliability is assured and there are no user adjustments.And the sound? All the EAR trademarks are there: beautifully natural midrange and treble, superb stereo imaging, and of course extended but perfectly proportioned bass, with the extra power raising the roof even further than our earlier models.

Tim de Paravicini established EAR in 1979, since when the brand has been renowned worldwide for the finest valve (tube) amplifiers. But in 2000 the tradition was broken with the Paravicini 312 transistor preamplifier, now joined by the M100 transistor power amplifier. To anyone familiar with EAR/Yoshino products, it will come as no surprise that this is no ordinary transistor amplifier. Designed explicitly to provide a 'valve-like' sound from transistors, it uses de Paravicini's unrivalled expertise in audio transformer design to the full, with a unique single-ended output stage coupled to the load through an output transformer. Being single ended, the M100 naturally operates entirely in Class A, with all that that implies for clarity and purity of sound. High reliability is assured by the use of multiple parallel output transistors, with adequate heatsink area for any climate (no noisy cooling fans), and the essential simplicity of the audio circuit helps with both sonic and reliability aspects. A choke-input power supply gives maximum immunity to mains supply variations and also prevents the amplifier from corrupting the mains supply in turn.

L’amplificatore per cuffia HP4 Amplificatore per Cuffia a valvole: 4 X 6SL7
Tim de Paravicini has long had a worldwide reputation for valve preamplifiers and power amplifiers. Now he has applied his expertise to produce what is arguably the world's finest headphone amplifier aimed at the highest quality dynamic headphones. The HP4 uses 6SL7 valves, properly matched to the load through de Paravicini's renowned transformers, to deliver nearly 1W of high quality, low distortion power into high or low impedance headphones. The output circuit configuration uses de Paravicini's 'Enhanced Triode Mode', as employed in the highly successful V20 and 859 integrated amplifiers, while the input is also transformer coupled, giving the flexibility to accept balanced or unbalanced signals from the preamplifier. For the greatest user convenience the HP4 has its own volume control, while input signals can be independently switched through to the power amplifier for headphone and/or loudspeaker listening. As with all EAR products, reliability is paramount and valve life is in excess of 10,000 hours. It has facilities for up to five line inputs, and offers a genuine tape monitoring circuit, making a total of six inputs. A high quality volume control is fitted, as well as a panel mounted power switch. Input and output terminals are gold plated. Designed by Tim de Paravicini in his usual robust style, the EAR 834L is the perfect match for any high end system, whether biased towards analogue or digital. The electronic architecture is minimalist, so that the absolute minimum sonic degradation takes place. There are three double triode valves, arranged in a classic 'de Paravicini circuit'. Special attention has been given to the input circuitry. All inputs are at the rear of the chassis, on the same circuit board as the selector switches, which are operated remotely by long control shafts. The power supply is a unique arrangement; a high quality toridal transformer feeds a double DC power supply, that provides the low-tension (LT) heater current, and the high-tension (HT) anode voltage. It is critical in a preamplifier that both the HT and LT supplies are pure DC, and free from AC ripple. This is the case with all EAR products, not just this preamplifier. The circuit is designed used in such a way as to have a minimum life of five years* continuous operation for the valves. The preamplifier has more than enough output for any power amplifier, transistor or valve, and is ideal for driving long interconnect cables to remotely located power amplifiers. The unit is available in Classic and Deluxe specification. Deluxe builds on the Classic's specification with a superior chrome and gold finish, with extra outputs to facilitate bi-amping systems, and a neon power monitor light. *Discounting occasional random premature failure of valves.
