Heartwarming, yet Cutting-Edge
CEC’s first vacuum tube integrated amplifier
The TUBE53 is a high-power vacuum tube amplifier which achieves a 20W + 20W (8Ω) output. It offers high response and the ability to drive analogue signals with ease, even from digital media players.
The TUBE53 uses the 6L6GC vacuum tubes for the output. The 6L6GC is known as a compact, high-power and high-speed tube based on the 6L6, designed in the 1930’s by the RCA Company in the USA. Several modifications enabled spectacular improvement in the stability and reliability of the tube, giving the 6L6GC the ability to satisfy modern musical demands such as high-power, high-speed etc. The 6L6GC is also well-known as a guitar amplifier tube, helping create countless legendary moments with big brands thanks to its remarkable musical characteristics.
The TUBE53 uses two 6L6GC tubes per channel in a push-pull configuration, and the power amplifier circuitry is designed in the Mullard type with low-distortion for the phase inverting. The auto-bias setting results in a long service life for the tubes. The TUBE53’s minimum reliance on negative feedback circuitry enables hi-fidelity music reproduction.
