Launched in Dec 2010, the Kondo Overture is Kondo Audionote Japan's most affordable amplifier. It's a 32-watt EL-34 based integrated amplifier. The amp is said to feature:
• High quality handcrafting with module style amplifier section, best component placements, signal wiring and ground layout.
• Silver foil coupling capacitors are adopted in both driver and output stages. Decouplings are carefully placed along all stages for natural, stress-free music performance.
• Newly developed CCB circuit guarantees signals purity. It stops signals from flowing through biasing trim pot. Tonal quality is drastically increased.
• KONDO silver wires KSL-VzII and SSW are adopted. Tremendous hours of listening and comparisons were spent for the selections of parts.
