If you build an amplifier with a SUPERB power supply,
like our 8 kilogram mains power transformer + choke / inductors,
in our GBP £850+ valves amplifiers,
you do NOT need to 'muck about' with upgrading the power supply !
( It is naive to believe that more expensive amplifiers MUST sound better ! )

Unbelievable claims about amplifiers from  Icon Audio , Prima Luna , Naim , Classe ,
There are dealers in Internet Forum, pretending to be innocent members of the public,
making absurd claims that that Icon Audio valve amplifiers and Prima Luna valve amplifier
sound better than our amplifier. These claims are absurd and nonsensical.
Please see below for our 1 month home trail,
which will prove that our competitors dealers claims are absurd and nonsensical.
... 2006 issue of Hi Fi News magazine makes unbelievable claims that
the "BEST AMPLIFIERS" are GBP £ 1000 Naim Audio Nait 5i TRANSISTOR amplifier
and GBP £ 4000 (or GBP £2500 in America) Classe Audio CAP-2100 TRANSISTOR amplifier
( Classe Audio CAP-2100 sells for USD $ 4900 , about GBP £ 2500 in America,     )
( but an astonishing GBP £ 4000 in England !  Hummm ....... )
Is Classe Audio CAP-2100 worth GBP £ 4000 or GBP £ 2500 ?
Please read ......  
Please read ......  Can our £700 valve amplifier sound better than £3,000 transistor amplifiers ?
Most SERIOUS Hi Fi enthusiast (with 'standard' taste)
will agree that 
'Push Pull' 'Ultra Linear' or 'Triode Connection' VALVE AMPLIFIERS with
LARGE output transformers and EXCELLENT BASS and does NOT hum,
REALISTIC  LIFELIKE human voices (without irritating, exaggerated sibilance)
(when a woman say 'his' , it sound like 'hisssssssk')
SWEET TREBLE (without losing the treble details)
sounds better than TRANSISTOR amplifiers.
Relatively few SERIOUS Hi Fi enthusiast
with SERIOUS equipment (i.e. NOT tiny 5 inch speaker or SMALL 6 inch speaker)
( Please note that most SERIOUS speakers, over GBP £5000, are NOT small 6 inch speakers )
will say that they prefer TRANSISTOR amplifiers,
after they heard
a SERIOUS MODERN High End 'Fixed / Adjustable bias' VALVE amplifier
with EXCELLENT BASS from HUGE output transformers.
( Many old 'automatic bias' valve amplifier have lousy bass or woolly bass + warm fussy sound, )
( especially if the old valves have been used for 10 years !                                                         )
Some owners of our superb sounding "High End" and 'Ultra High End' valve amplifier
might disagree with Hi Fi News claims
that GBP £ 1000 and GBP £ 2500 (or inflated GBP £ 4000)
integrated TRANSISTOR amplifier are better ?BEST? than
their superb sounding Affordable Valve Company 'High End' and 'Ultra High End' 
'Triode Connection' 'push pull' VALVE amplifiers
that are the BEST AMPLIFIERS IN THE WORLD
or MONEY REFUNDED (less shipping cost. equipment returned during 1 month home trial)
Please read
Customers testimonials for "EL34 Ultra Linear" valve amplifier (click here for more details)
Customers testimonial for "KT88 Triode Connection" amplifiers (click here for more details)
with reviews from our customers who prefer our superb sounding "High End" valve amplifier
to "High End" TRANSISTOR pre amplifier / power amplifiers / monoblocks / separate power supply
... 2006 issue of Hi Fi News magazine makes unbelievable claims that
the "BEST AMPLIFIERS" are GBP £ 1000 Naim Audio Nait 5i TRANSISTOR amplifier
and GBP £ 4000 (or GBP £2500 in America) Classe Audio CAP-2100 TRANSISTOR amplifier
( Classe Audio CAP-2100 sells for USD $ 4900 , about GBP £2 500 in America,     )
( but an astonishing GBP £ 4000 in England !  Hummm ....... )
I think that some of our customers might disagree with Hi Fi News magazine 
because
one of our customers had Naim pre / power
and another customer had Classe pre / power.
and another customer had Musical Fidelity pre + monoblocks.
These customer wanted to 'dip their toes into the water'
to see / hear if the hype about valve / tube amplifiers were true,
so they bought our GBP £250 'starter' valve amplifier on 1 month home trial.
All 3 of these customer preferred our hilariously priced GBP £250 valve amplifier.
This sound unbelievable until you read my article called
Can our £700 valve amplifier sound better than £3,000 transistor amplifiers ?
1 of these customer have upgraded our GBP £250 amplifier to our GBP £408 amplifier for a very reasonable price,
and he is pleased with the upgrade.
2 of these customer kept our GBP £250 valve amplifier for many months,
before taking the plunge and upgraded to our more expensive GBP £1000+ valve amplifiers.
2 of these customers got about 80 percent 'trade in' price for our GBP £250 valve amplifier,
because they were upgrading to a very expensive amplifier.
We CANNOT give you 80 percent 'trade in'
if you are upgrading from our GBP £250 valve amplifier to our GBP £650 valve amplifier
MONEY BACK GUARANTEE (less shipping charges.
equipment returned during 1 month home trial) that .......
our GBP £250 VALVE amplifier will sound 2 times to 100 times better
(depending on how fussy you are) than 
GBP £ 4000 ( or an unbelievable GBP £ 2500 in America ) Classe Audio CAP-2100 TRANSISTOR amplifier
that Hi Fi News magazine unbelievably claim to be the 'Best amplifier'.  Ha ! Ha ! Very funny.
GBP £1000 Naim Nait 5i essentially 'Class B bias' TRANSISTOR amplifier
that Hi Fi News magazine unbelievably claim to be the 'Best amplifier'.  Ha ! Ha ! Very funny.
GBP £50 to GBP £100000 DIGITAL amplifiers / CLASS D amplifiers
GBP £500 to GBP £100000 HYBRID amplifiers
GBP £500 to GBP £100000 TRANSISTOR amplifiers / pre / power 
/ monoblock / power supply
There is no need to 'mess about' with upgrading power supply,
if the amplifier was designed and built with a SERIOUS power supply.
Like our main power transformer (in our more expensive amplifiers)
that weighs 8 kilogram (about the weight of a COMPLETE transistor 'typical' amplifier)
+ high voltage 1 Henry choke / inductor (in our more expensive amplifiers)
+ high voltage capacitors.
Musical Fidelity did NOT invent chokes / inductors for power supply !
Does your expensive 'Flat Cap' or 'High Cap' power supply
have High Voltage 1 Henry chokes / inductors ?
High Voltage 1 Henry chokes / inductors 
is the equivalent of High Voltage 1,000,000 micro farad capacitor.
Many transistor amplifier boost of LOW voltage 50,000 micro farad capacitors,
which stores much much much much less energy !
MONEY BACK GUARANTEE (less shipping charges.
equipment returned during 1 month home trial) that .......
our GBP £250 VALVE amplifier will sound 2 times to 10 times better 
(depending on how fussy you are) than 
GBP £600 Icon Audio valve amplifier and
GBP £700 to GBP £1200 Prima Luna valve amplifiers (including Prima Luna Monoblocks) and Audion monoblocks  help#audion1
(Please compare the size of the output transformers)
MONEY BACK GUARANTEE (less shipping charges.
equipment returned during 1 month home trial) that .......
our GBP £408 VALVE amplifier will sound 2 times to 10 times better
(depending on how fussy you are)  than 
GBP £900 to GBP £1800 Icon Audio valve amplifier 
(Please compare the size of the output transformers)
MONEY BACK GUARANTEE (less shipping charges. 
equipment returned during 1 month home trial) that .......
our GBP £750 to GBP £1400 'Triode connection' VALVE amplifier 
will sound 2 to 10 times better (depending on how fussy you are) than .....
GBP £3000 to GBP £100000 'Ultra Linear' VALVE amplifiers 
like Audio Research (same British distributor as Prima Luna)
(There is a difference between 'High Price' and High End'.)
(It is naive to assume that expensive amplifiers sound better than cheap amplifiers.)
(Please compare the size of the output transformers.)
GBP £3000 to GBP £100000 hyped up 300B , 845, etc 'Single Ended' valve amplifiers
like GBP £30000 to GBP £60000 Audio Note Ongaku
Most Single ended amplifier have lousy bass.
Many Single Ended amplifier hums !
For all practical intent and purposes,
our superior valve amplifier have do NOT hum,
unless you put your ear next to the speaker
(There is a difference between 'High Price' and High End'.)
(It is naive to assume that expensive amplifiers sound better than cheap amplifiers.)
(Please compare the size of the output transformers.)
Why don't you ask for 1 month home trial of amplifiers
from Naim , Classe , Icon Audio, Prima Luna, Audio Research and us
and make up your own mind.
If their amplifiers are so good, they will not be afraid of a 1 month home trial.
Please tell the dealer that you will be auditioning their valve or transistor amplifier against
a GENUINE 'Affordable Valve Company' Triode Connection valve amplifier
MODIFIED IN ENGLAND BY LIM AIK LEONG (beware of fakes),
and you should be able to hear the dealer cringe !
IF I AM LYING, WILL I OFFER YOU 1 MONTH HOME TRIAL,
AND LOSE MONEY BECAUSE I WILL END UP WITH USED VALVE AMPLIFIERS,
IF OUR VALVE AMPLIFIER SOUND WORSE ?

 
New articles added to the website. 
Much more interesting and thought provoking than many Hi Fi magazines.
Better advice and more technically correct than most Hi Fi magazines (which are usually filled with absurd technical errors)
Example of typical advice in Hi Fi magazines
Readers SMALL 6 inch speakers
cannot imitate / reproduce HUGE 22 inch kick bass drum and HUGE 32 inch kettle drums 
cannot fill HUGE 20 feet rooms with LOUD BASSy music.
Typical Hi Fi magazines advice is 
change the CD player, interconnect, loudspeakers cable, etc.
Please could somebody explain to me ..........
how can changing the CD player, interconnect, speaker cable, etc.
make SMALL 6 inch speakers imitate / reproduce HUGE 22 inch kick bass drum
and HUGE 32 inch timpani / kettle drums and fill HUGE 20 feet room with LOUD BASSy music ?
SERIOUS bass instruments must be huge.
Likewise, SERIOUS bass speakers and cabinets must be huge.
Just look at GBP £6000 huge B&W Nautilus 802 or GBP £13000 huge B&W Nautilus 800
How about some sane advice like .......
WELL DESIGNED (that need not be expensive) BIG 10 inch woofers in BIG cabinets
are better suited to imitating / reproducing HUGE 22 inch kick bass drums
and HUGE 32 inch timpani / kettle drums.

There is a difference between "High Price" and "High End" !

There is a difference between TAC 34 , TAC 88 , TAC 834 , Magma , Audio Institute and our MODIFIED IN ENGLAND valve amplifier ! ( Unscrupulous dealers who tell you that they are the same are liars , and breaking the law of "Trade Description Act" ! )



 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 


 
 

We are real, we exist. We sold our first EL34 valve amplifier in September 1999,
and our valve amplifiers have proven their reliability for over 6 years.
Our amplifiers AND VALVES are guaranteed for 2 years
Most of the time, our local shops do NOT stock
Hi Fi News , Hi Fi Choice & Hi Fi World.
 These magazines might appear on the shelves for a few days,
and then our local shops do NOT restock with 
Hi Fi News , Hi Fi Choice & Hi Fi World.
It is probably that way for most of England, 
except for BIG newsagents in BIG railway or BIG tube stations in BIG cities.
We get MUCH MUCH more response
from 150 of GBP £2 eBay listing,
than GBP £1000 a month of advertisement
in Hi Fi News , Hi Fi Choice & Hi Fi World.
So, we have given up wasting our money
by advertising in Hi Fi News , Hi Fi Choice & Hi Fi World
"What Hi Fi" magazine is found in my local shops, but their advertising rates is
MANY times more than the other magazines !
We will have to double our selling price,
if we wanted to pay for advertising in "What Hi Fi magazine".
We export world wide using RELIABLE UPS courier.

 
 


 

Money back guarantee that you will prefer these valve amplifiers to transistor amplifiers

How can our £700 valve amplifier sound better
                            than £3,000 transistor amplifiers ?
 

 
About 90% of customers keep our amplifiers.  Money refunded to 10% of customers. 
Money Back Guarantee (less £30, within 30 days)
that our valve amplifiers will
1. Reduce the harsh sound of CD players (without losing the treble)
2. Reduce the harsh sound of metal dome tweeters (without losing the treble)
3. Change the "hard" sound of metal cones to a sweet "fast" midrange
4. Produce more bass than MOST transistor amplifier and MOST Single Ended valve amplifier. 
  (at a realistic life size volume) 
5. Control and reduce sibilance.  Sibilance is when a woman say "his", it sound like like "Hissssssk".
6. Produce more realistic human voices
7. Produces an "inky black silence" between notes
8. The difference will be 10 times more than changing a cable
Some of our customer used to own £2,000 to £8,000 transistor amplifiers.
They were not 100% happy with the "transistor" sound,
so they took a chance on our cheaper valve amplifier.

Reliability & 2 Years Guarantee
We have been selling the upgraded version for 3 years, 
and they have proven their reliability !
We guarantee everything (including the valves) for 2 years.
I am amused that an American £4,000 valve amplifier 
only has 90 days guarantee on their valves !
If you want 2 years guarantee on the valves, 
buy our cheaper amplifier !

used in £2,500 to £3,000 American amplifiers.
So, we encourage you to compare our KT88 amplifiers 
with £2,500 to £3,000 American 6550 amplifiers, 
and hear the difference for yourself !
You should buy Hi Fi equipment with your ears, and not your wallet !

 
 
 
 
If you have a detached house, far away from neighbours,
and own big speakers with 12 in woofers, 
and you like your music at very high levels (which will permanently damage your hearing) 
then our
£1,000 "EL34 Lim Signature" (40 watts + 40 watts) 
£1,450 "EL34 High End" (40 watts + 40 watts) 
are probably better for you.
However, we strongly recommend that you listen to music at a much softer volume 
to prevent permanent damage to your hearing.
Most people owning 6 inch speakers, living in terrace houses, 
do not need more than 20 watts (with good bass), 
from our "KT88 Triode Connection", 
which has sweeter treble and more realistic human voice than "Ultra Linear" amplifiers .

 

We apologize that parts of our website might show the old prices.

Click here for 18 Customers Reviews of Model EL34 valve amplifier   who prefers our EL34 Valve amplifier to :-

£2,600 Naim preamp / power amp / Hicap ,
expensive Arcam preamp & power amp
expensive Audiolab preamp & power amp
very expensive Linn preamp & power amp,
very expensive Quad preamp & power amp ...........

which proves that expensive, well reviewed transistor preamp & power amplifiers
still does not produce the good old valve sound


Many valve amplifiers look the same, because there is a limit to
how many ways you can arrange 3 transformers, 4 big valves and 4 small valves,
to fit on a small box !

 Our valve amplifiers have been MODIFIED IN ENGLAND
with American GEC NOS JAN (military) small 5670 valves, SILVER MICA capacitors, ferrite ring mains filter, etc.

 THESE MODIFICATIONS MAKES OUR AMPLIFIER SOUND DIFFERENT
TO OTHER VALVE AMPLIFIERS (THAT LOOK THE SAME).
