Symphony II

In the Symphony II, we take the 300B tube into previously uncharted territory. Uncolored spacious views are complemented by impactful bass – uncharacteristically so for a 300B – in a 10 Wpc design that is comfortable with all kinds of music.

Key to the Symphony II sound is the broad dynamics that only our signature hand-wound split-core transformer can deliver from this sonically accurate, but typically mid-range focused tube.

Legendary for its bell-like chime and higher order harmonics, the 300B has been an audiophile favorite for years.

In the Symphony II, we believe you’ll reveal in this tube’s new-found ability to process and place a wide range of music naturally, as well as breathing an extraordinary degree of nuance into vocals.

We invite you to audition the Symphony II with your nearest ArtAudio representative.
