Description

The Dione is a two-channel hybrid power amplifier featuring zero feedback and differential balanced-bridged outputs. The hybrid design draws inspiration from award-winning Atlas power amplifier and Mimas integrated amplifier. It features a bipolar output stage, a bipolar driver stage, a FET input stage and a vacuum tube gain stage using a pair of 6922 tubes. The optional discrete internal crossover module allows separate crossover inputs. All inputs have both single-ended and balanced jacks. The low-flux transformer is custom-wound in-house and supplies high and low current power to all individual discrete regulation circuits throughout the Dione. A stainless steel transformer shielded enclosure prevents magnetic fields from interacting with sensitive audio circuits.

The vacuum tube voltage gain stage uses Roederstein MK4 plate load resistors, high-grade polypropylene film coupling capacitors from Reliable Capacitor, and silver/ceramic tube sockets. All XLR connectors are Neutrik and the Dione’s stunning machined aluminium casework portrays the beautiful lines and proportions of Mimas and Pallene.

The Dione is a great example of a new breed of audio amplifiers that are incorporating high end circuit designs and high quality componentry packaged at an unprecedented pricing level, offering incredible performance and value. This level of performance is frankly astonishing. Matched with the Pallene pre-amplifier, this is a potent combination that will defy expectations and deliver a level of musical enjoyment normally reserved for components double the price. Marvellous!
