The Black Beasts


A finished pair of Single Ended 300B mono amplifiers.

801A Drives 300B, interstage transformer coupled using silver transformers throughout.

Finished in all black for a sinister look.

And here some photos of the amps in their new owners home:

Since I am always reluctant to write about the sound of my amplifiers I am glad that their owner allowed me not only to use his photos but also to quote him:

I’m in complete bliss and awe of the Thomas Mayer amps…:)
I’m just starting to listen to the new set up, aka the Black Beast. The setting is temporary but doesn’t look too bad…:)
The added depth, texture, transparency, dynamic range, holographic feel, silence (like I haver never heard silence so dead and soothing),…

What an experience…
I must say, I did not expect this.
What an amazing gift Thomas…

And this remark after listening to the amps for a few days:

The funny thing about the amps, they’re so good, I don’t even have to go through my favourite albums, the reference albums, because this combo of line amp and mono blocks is so miles ahead of what I knew of sound, that I can listen to whatever album and be in awe of the listening experience. There’s no need of a reference album, the amps are that good. There’s no doubt, this is propulsing me in the upper and pure audio sphere…

The 10Y line preamplifier which is driving these amps will be featured in an upcoming post.

Stay tuned!

Best regards
