Icon Audio Stereo 60P MkIIIm

Icon Audio’s First Stereo Power Amplifier Now Available

The Icon Audio Stereo 60P MkIIIm is a high-powered stereo amplifier designed to get the very best performance from virtually any pre-amplifier whether it is valve, hybrid, transistor, transformer or passive. It has no input selector. No volume control. It is a pure power amplifier in which the input socket is directly connected to the grid of the first valve.

The massive power supply, Low Distortion Tertiary (LDT) output transformers, and the excellent KT120 valve combine to produce a ground-shaking 80 watts per channel.  Ideal for users seeking a very fast and dynamic sound, the ST60P MkIIIm will deliver the power of rock music and the finest detail of modern recordings without harshness.  Some audiophiles prefer the sweetness of triode operation. The Stereo 60P MkIIIm is able to change from an ultralinear 80 watt per channel amplifier to a 40 watt triode amplifier at the flick of a switch.

High output valve amplifiers work better with ‘fixed’ bias but this needs occasional checking. The Stereo 60P MkIIIm features a built-in bias meter which greatly simplifies keeping the amplifier in peak performance.

Every amplifier is finished and tested by Icon Audio’s team of engineers in Leicester, and can be ordered as a ‘David Shaw Signature’ version featuring Jensen copper foil oil-in-paper capacitors and premium valves.
