Unison Research Simply Italy Integrated Amplifier (Black)

Ex-demonstration - boxed like new - full warranty

What Hi-Fi 5* Award Winner

**FREE shipping mainland UK** ...

Unison Research, arguably Italy's best-known valve amp specialist, has launched its latest masterpiece - Simply Italy.

This beautifully compact new integrated has a rich heritage, drawing inspiration from the hugely successful Simply Two amplifier - one of the worl's most successful valve amps.

With the 10,000-selling Simply Two firmly in mind, Unison's crafts people set about creating a newly redesigned version that shares many of the characteristics and celebrated sonic attributes of the famous original, but with a more modern appearance. 

Simply Italy offers the same 12 watts of assured, high-quality power per channel, but now features a 6-Ohm output impedance, increasing the amp's flexibility for use with 4- and 8-Ohm loudspeakers.

Unison Research's Professor Gianni Sacchetti, designer of the Simply Italy said: "Simply Italy was d to provide serious audiophiles with a small, inexpensive, high-quality amplifier. Every technological solution was employed and our use of high-quality components contributes to an exceptional level of sound quality."

Hand-built in Unison Research's facility just north of Venice, Simply Italy's amplifying stages are all strictly valve-based and the circuit design ensures that all the valves operate in pure Class-A mode. 

Thanks to Unison Research's long-term dedication to the design, development and manufacture of output transformers, it has been possible to  an output stage for Simply Italy consisting of one EL34 in singleended ultra-linear configuration. Indeed, this mode of operation is made possible by a particular development of the output transformers, which in practice, allow the pentode EL34s to operate almost as if they were triodes. 

The preamp and driver stage of the power output is entrusted to ECC82 twin triodes. These valves provide excellent linearity and an almost complete absence of uneven order harmonic distortion.

The same care and attention reserved for the amplifying stage design was also given to the power supply. The Simply Italy power-supply transformer is not a normal
torroidal transformer, but the result of a project aimed at reducing electrical loss and containing dispersed magnetic flux, a type of power supply which might be called "Quaso-Dual-Mono" has been adopted. In fact, apart from the power transformer and first filter stage, the power supply is doubled, separating all preamp stages to the benefit of low crosstalk and low distortion.

Unison Research's design department has worked painstakingly to  a beautifully designed amplifier that harks back to the original Simply Two, yet incorporates significant aesthetic improvements. Luxurious wood detailing is now confined to the front panel, but embellished by the addition of contrasting circular inserts, also made from wood, which give a more striking appearance to the controls. 

Two satin stainless-steel bands beneath the valves add a touch of refinement, and also assist the thermic isolation of the electronic circuit and output transformers which gives a clear benefit to sound quality and overall reliability.

In the Simply Italy nothing has been left to chance: the control knobs, for example, turned from non-magnetic stainless steel of large diameter and weight, give a smooth flywheel effect with excellent feel and rotational precision. The wood parts, important for the aesthetic design, also play an important role in damping chassis resonance and, thus, assist the delicate electronic parts, valves etc, to perform at their best.

As in all Unison Research projects, great care has been taken with the fundamentals such as power-supply track sizing, careful routing of both earthing and signal runs, the overall robustness, the ease of build and servicing, and the provision of adequate ventilation for the internal circuit. 

To ensure the best performance and best reliability over time of all the components used in Simply Italy, everything has been carefully chosen and selected, from resistors, many of which are anti-inductive, to
electrolytic capacitors, valve sockets in pure ceramic, to the printed circuit boards in vetronite. 

The Simply Italy also boasts an ALPS motorized pot, infra-red remote handset and gold-plated speaker terminals. The sound, of course, is pure Unison Research: refined, generous, natural and musically enjoyable. 

Despite a modest output power rating of 12 watts, this purist design has exceptional sound quality and a driving ability that belies its rated output.

Unison Research Triode 25 Intregrated Amplifier (Cherry)

List Price £2350 - SAVE £475

Ex-demonstration - boxed like new - full warranty

**FREE shipping mainland UK** 

The Triode 25 is Unison Research�s latest Integrated Amplifier. In Triode mode it delivers 25wpc and in Pentode mode, 45wpc. There is switch allowing you to run in either mode. 

Whether you run in Triode or Pentode, the Unison Research Triode 25 is a beautiful amplifier and a wonderful new addition to the much celebrated Unison Research line-up.

The Triode 25, like its predecessor, is a push-pull amplifier that utilizes EL34 tubes in the output stage. The push-pull circuit includes a final stage with two power tubes intended for the amplification of the positive half-waves, respectively, and of the negative half-waves of the audio signal. 

The task of properly reconstructing the audio signal is then assigned to the output transformer which, thanks to its symmetrical structure, allows for a highly linear signal. 

Here are some of the more important and significant benefits of a push-pull structure in this type of amplifier design:
 
Higher output power.

Higher efficiency and therefore less heat generated, with positive effects on the durability of the output tubes as well as a significant savings in energy costs

No static polarization of the output transformer, resulting in better performance of this section
 
To ensure high quality sound in an amplifier with a push-pull configuration, however, it is essential that all individual amplification stages, especially the two semi-output amplifiers, are carefully designed and constructed to prevent the formation of dangerous and compromising odd-order harmonic distortion. This is even truer for the output transformer.
 
The new Triode amplifier 25 has experienced a long and painstaking design and testing period despite the considerable experience already gained in the construction of its predecessor, the Triode 20.

The Triode 25 can operate in two modes: triode and pentode. The latter is capable of delivering a maximum power output of over 45 watts per channel with a  of 6 ohms with harmonic distortion extremely contained across the entire audio band.

Unison Research S-6 Amplifier (Cherry)

List Price £2995 - SAVE £600

Ex-demonstration - boxed like new - full warranty

**FREE shipping mainland UK** ...

After many years of great success Unison Research decided on a new updated and improved version of this classic award winning amplifier.

In this new model, the configuration of the final stage was maintained with a Parallel Single Ended Ultra-Pure Class A. The polarization of individual tubes has been changed and transformed from fully automatic to mixed. About 2 / 3 Bias is obtained with a cathode- type auto polarization and a third from the fixed polarization.

The fixed polarization of each valve is adjustable through a potentiometer and an illuminated analog instrument (for each channel). The choice of the mixed polarization increases the efficiency of the final stage and reduces the factor of  feedback with an appreciable improvement in sound. The output transformer is a new design and has a fixed output impedance of 6 ohms.

As is known the nominal impedance declared for an acoustic diffuser is not very significant: the real impedance undergoes significant changes with frequency, and its value may even  below the nominal value stated. In this regard it should be noted that all the speakers produced by Unison an Opera are in accordance with DIN specifications and never s below the minimum values indicated by that rules (20% of the nominal value). The decision to standardize the output impedance to 6 ohms is aimed at optimally interface all speaker with nominal impedance of 4 or 8 ohms.

Particular attention was paid to the power stage: each preamp stage is decoupled and filtered separately.

The new S6 has also been redesigned from the mechanical point of view: the two channels of the amplifier no longer share a single printed circuit but are now separated in two circuits located on the right and left of the chassis. This solution has greatly improved both the crosstalk and the heat dissipation. In this way the temperature in the various circuits is more controlled in the interest of sound quality, stability, reliability and the very life of electronic components.

The S6 aesthetic has been totally renovated giving to the amplifier greater personality and refinement. In particular, the new front panel, with inlaid wood in contrast, shows the amplifier technology and highlights the unique �Made In Italy� taste.
