Valve amplification has its origins in the early 20th century, yet this is a technology that has survived over 100 years for one (very) good reason – it can sound sublime. The Steljes Audio ML-30HD hybrid valve integrated amplifier perfectly implements this classic design to deliver a warm, rich sound, perfectly suited to today’s digital music files. The inclusion of Bluetooth technology means it can wirelessly stream music from a paired device, enabling both convenience and quality – often an all too rare pairing.
With more than enough power to drive today’s efficient loudspeaker designs, the ML-30HD also offers a headphone output for discreet listening. Its in-built USB DAC (accredited by the Japan Hi Res Audio Society) lets you get the best from music stored on laptops and computers, while the moving magnet phono stage means you can hook-up a turntable and spin your vinyl, too. This is one seriously well-equipped amplifier.
It’s also a delight to look at, complete with stylish brushed metal chassis, and that prominent valve emits a wonderful glow when the amplifier’s up and running. If you are looking for a bit of kit to leave you feeling warm all over, the ML-30HD is the perfect partner.
