Review of the Canor Tube Amplifier in Hi Fi Choice, 5 stars.
The Canor TP106 VR is a new aluminium design integrated tube amplifier, with 6L6GC high-power tubes in ultra-linear connection to cathode feedback that operates in pure class A up to 11 watts per channel.
Canor have employed an entirely new mechanical and electronic topology that yields further significant improvements in sound.
The amplifier is a massive welded-metal structure with a heavyweight printed circuit board comprising double-thick copper, as well as strong high-frequency shielding: this makes the TP106 VR extremely resistant to both mechanical and electrical influences, and is critical if a tube amplifier is to be able to attain the ‘neutral’ presentation and characteristics for which they are admired.
The management section that provides overall amplifier control is completely galvanically separated from the audio section; and the transformer core is vacuum-impregnated so as to ensure the lack of any transformer hum. Furthermore, the area that controls power supply employs very effective high-frequency filters, and anode voltage is rectified by vacuum diodes and is filtered with high-capacity capacitors.
One of the most important parts of a tube amplifier, the output transformer, has several bifilar windings which are lined up in sections to maximise power bandwidth.
The TP106 VR integrated tube amplifier uses polypropylene capacitors exclusively in its signal path to provide an extremely impressive acoustic quality.
The VR+ model features superior Mundorf capacitors that provide a major upgrade in performance over the basic model.
The TP106 is available in either a black or silver finish. The amplifier can be heard in our Huddersfield demonstration room, or we can arrange for you to listen to it in your own home. Get to know this amplifier and you will be seduced.
Thank You David at MCRU for the fantastic service and speedy delivery of my Canor TP106VR+ Integrated Valve Amplifier. The Canor TP106VR+ Integrated Valve Amplifier has changed the way I listen to music. I've never heard music sound so realistic and natural before. It is an exceptionally remarkable amplifier with its own unique refined unrestrained sound. Canor have achieved a massive break through in Valve amplifiers! S.Lucas a very happy customer!
