SILTECH SAGA V1 / P1 Power Amplifier

Quick Overview

SILTECH SAGA V1 / P1 Power Amplifier (Limited Production)

Unlike conventional amplifiers, the SAGA system separates the voltage and current gain stages. This offers multiple benefits, allowing the use of tubes and batteries to maintain low noise performance and dynamic range, while isolating this critical function from noisy AC circuitry. The revolutionary Apollo Light Drive provides a clean, high-current DC supply in the P1, delivering dynamic shadings and swings that are almost literally lightning fast, helped by the same superb component and mono-crystal silver internal wiring found in the C1. Although the V1 and P1 can only be used as a pair, one additional benefit is that a single V1 can be used to drive a pair of P1 stereo amplifiers, allowing for high-powered, bi-amplified system solutions.
