Cadence VA 1

Cadence VA 1.0

RFQ

The smooth, natural sound of the Cadence VA 1.0 is the result of Cadence's innovative hybrid approach. The best performance characteristics of vacuum tubes are enhanced by precise solid-state monitoring, and the whole is integrated into one harmonious instrument.

The VA 1.0 is the perfect complement for Cadence's hybrid electrostatic loudspeakers. THE CADENCE ES AND THE ARCA ARE THE ONLY ELECTROSTATIC LOUDSPEAKERS WHICH CAN BE EASILY DRIVEN BY VALVE AMPLIFIERS – THE AUDIOPHILE'S DREAM!

The design of the VA 1.0 is completely unique. Solid state transistor circuitry drives the valves. Specially designed solid state devices also monitor and constantly bias the valves, so that they are always matched to perfection.

This makes the VA 1.0 the most user friendly valve amplifier available. There is no need to match valves, any valve may be replaced without having to change the whole set. Plus, bias control is automatic. Just switch on the VA 1.0, and play.
