REFERENCE 75 SE
VACUUM TUBE STEREO POWER AMPLIFIER, 75 WATTS
The Reference 75 SE is a stunning amplifier in every way – performance, styling and reliability combined to elevate your music listening to a new experience. Capable of controlling a wide variety of speakers, the Reference 75 SE will transport you into the musical performance unlike any other comparable amplifier. At the heart of the Reference 75 SE is decades of proven Audio Research vacuum tube technology, a legacy unrivaled by any other manufacturer of tube electronics. Developed through hundreds of hours of critical listening, the carefully selected components comprising the Reference 75 SE combine to provide an amplifier which transcends traditional hi-fi, instead relaying music with realism and tangibility.
The KT150 vacuum tube delivers power from the amplifier to your speakers. Newly designed solely for the audio industry, the KT150 offers higher power handling and current delivery. A matched pair of tubes per channel run conservatively, ensuring stable operation and many hours of trouble-free listening. Custom designed capacitors couple the output of the tubes to the speakers for the purest signal possible.
The Reference 75 SE is the new generation from a lineage of amplifiers only Audio Research could produce. Experience real music and unleash the capacity of your system – music in High Definition®.
75 watts per channel continuous from20Hz to 20kHz. 1kHz total harmonic distortion typically 0.6% at 75 watts, below 0.05% at 1 watt. Approximate actual power available at ‘clipping’ 76 watts (1kHz). (Note that actual power output is dependent upon both line voltage and ‘condition’ i. e.: if power line has high distortion, maximum power will be affected adversely, although from a listening standpoint this is not very critical.)
(-3dB points) 7Hz to 60kHz.
(-3dB points at 1 watt) 0.7Hz to 75 kHz.
