Art Audio Jota
To us, the name says it all. Jota is a jubilant folk dance from Aragon, Spain. And like it’s dance namesake, the Jota was designed with an agile and honest 20 Wpc to get you moving.
The result: Superior sonic fidelity married with low-end control.
It’s been called the one single-ended amp to have if you could only ever have one. And that doesn’t surprise us given the attention to minute detail we lavished on this design.
A labor-intensive sub-assembly mechanically isolates the output tubes from the main chassis to enhance longevity. And the output transformers are our own hand-wound split core design that delivers dynamics and immediacy that sets this amplifier apart from its Class-A brethren.
We invite you to audition the Jota with your nearest Art Audio representative.
Zero-feedback design, high-peak current delivery
Automatic biasing circuit per each channel
Output transformers are a novel split-core type not normally associated with single-ended designs and custom-designed by Art Audio to give a wider bandwidth than most transformers generally available
Output tubes mounted on a special isolation plate assembled with vibration dampers to acoustically isolate them from any chassis vibration
A tube (CV378/GZ37) choke-regulated power supply preceded by a pi filter and primary solid- state rectifier
Resistors are 1% metal oxide for low noise
Capacitors are low ESR/ESL types for increased high frequency performance
High quality mil-spec, multi-layered 2-oz. copper trace circuit boards
Finished with polished (non magnetic) stainless steel chassis, gold or chrome-plated transformer caps and nameplate
High power options
EML 520 or KR 300BXLS output tubes instead of the stock KR 32B
Larger transformers and adjusted internal parts values to support the increased demands and current delivery (can be outfitted with 32B – however, the opposite is not possible – substituting 520, 300 BXLS for the 32B in the standard Jota)
