Amplifying trio (preamplifier and two monos) Hercules MkII has resulted from redevelopment and reworking of first generation Hercules.
Hercules MkII inherited staggering superiorities of Master of Music. These are fundamental design, high output power, highest quality components, parts and materials, custom made and handmade transformers, marvelous musicality based on perfect sound control etc. What’s more, MkII produced deep arguments verifying of amplifiers’ second name: Magister of Music!
Hercules MkII was developed by Alexey Syomin from the very ground up. Basically it is modular design in form of removable modules. Output power remained the same: 250 W (4 Ohm).
Output tubes are uncommonly musical beam-power tetrode 6п36с (4 tubes at a push-pull shoulder, i. e. 8 tubes in monoblock) at ultralinear mode. Input tube is 6072, driver is one of Mr. Syomin long-standing favorites 6v6. Preamplifier contains very musical and reliable Russian 6п9 tubes and C3g (Siemens). All Soviet tubes used are military grade parts produced in USSR on 1970s.
There are more sizable and powerful output transformers used in Hercules MkII’s monos. They have 1200 W compared 800 W of previous Hercules. Transformer are designed especially for Hercules MkII and manufactured by hands from world’s best Russian iron. New power supply has more powerful power transformers and chokes and increased cap’s capacitance.
Hercules MkII is decorated by such the exclusive materials as American walnut and genuine famous Carrara marble from what Renaissanse geniuses carved their masterpieces.
State-of-the-atr S.A.Lab amplifiers produce really marvellous and magister sounds of Music!
