Up for consideration is a pair of Audire Noble 1 mono-block amplifiers in very good condition. Years of research and circuit refinement has lead to the construction of the mono-block amplifiers known as Noble. These are single channel amps used in pairs for stereo to achieve complete isolation of left and right channels for the most precise instrument placement (imaging) possible.
The unique appearance of the Noble is due to the large heat sink used to cool the amplifier by air convection without noisy fans. The huge power supply can deliver over 20 amperes peak current from its toroidal transformer and 52,000uf filtering capacitors into 8 output devices. This high current capability allows the reproduction of the music signal, with all its subtleties and dynamic contrasts, into any load, capacitive, inductive or resistive.
The basic circuitry is discrete Class A, complimentary push-pull, featuring wide bandwidth transistors and DC coupled input to produce 75 watts of Class A power into 8 ohms. All output devices are matched to ensure linearity and thermal stability. The Noble amplifiers can faithfully recreate the musical event, duplicating the inherent transients, the smoothness, and the precise instrument location of the recorded performance. The Nobles will give new life to your music, revealing crystalline detail not previously heard.
This pair of Noble 1's was part of Julius's own private collection and have never been sold in the open market. The amps have basically been in storage for many years. These amps are equipped with premium SANKEN Ring-emitter transistors which are primarily utilized in his big Monarch Amps. They have been playing perfectly in my system for the past two weeks with zero issues. These amplifiers are very rare especially in this condition with low usage. I also have two additional Noble 1 cores or modules (heat sink, circuit board, toroidal transformer, etc.) which make up 80% of the amplifier that are in new condition and available for purchase. These are plug-n-play modules and are also equipped with the premium SANKEN Ring-emitter transistors. I also have an extra pair of wood footers. Just create the wooden side panels and you have a second pair of Noble 1's. Julius referred to the Nobles as his mini Monarchs. Prefer local pick up if possible but will ship. Package price with additional modules is negotiable. I am a little flexible on the price, however, low ball offers will be kindly ignored. This is a rare opportunity to own one of Julius's prized possessions.
