Audio Note P2SE


The P2SE is a Pure Class A Parallel Singled Ended valve amplifier that uses the 6L6GB / 5881 output valve and offers a level of performance and technology that was previously unavailable in a product at this price point.

The P2SE's design is derived from Audio Note's key technological features originally embraced by the world famous Audio Note1M Ongaku and Kegon amplifiers.

These features include Pure Class A operation, Zero negative feedback, Single ended output stage, Valve rectification, Directly heated Triode connected output stage, Materials and component quality.

The subjective sonic performance of our products can be measured by the number of these features included. The P2SE meets level 2 requirements.

The P2SE is a single ended type amplifier. This means that the complete music waveform reproduced by the amplifier is preserved as a complete whole. Consequently, a true single ended amplifier must be operated in pure class A and operates in a coherent and natural way.

This produces significant sonic advantages compared to conventional push pull amplifiers since push pull amplifiers require that an inverted waveform of the original input be created and this is far from the only problem associated with push pull amplifiers.


Power output: 18 watts per channel into 8Ω (stereo)

Valve complement: 4 x 6L6GB/5881, 2 x 6SL7

Dimensions: 140 x 300 x 410mm

Weight: 19kg
