Please more info about new Black Widow.
Guys talking about the new Black Widow PRE here. The BW Power / Monos you enquired about some monhs ago is out of production by end of the year.
The new BW Power replacing the current model shall be available around January 2017. It shall be a visual match to the current model but has "some" upgrades regarding operating points of input and driver stages, as well as a revised power supply. Available soon in both SE and BAL input, switchable. Power delivery stays at 300 per channel into 8. Transformer size up to 1.2KVA and a complement of 4 valves per stereo unit.
BW Mono also gets the 1.2KVA transformer but has a valve complement of 3 only and output power at 800 per Mono stays as is.
Appearance stays "bland" with NO curvy bits. All front panels in future shall only bear the Valve Audio name. Model designation shall be on the rear panels only going forward.
Of course new year sees all prices being elevated once more by all the rising input costs from the engineering guys and all the other bits and pieces as imported as well. Been taking the loss for this for too long now. If VA is to carry on surviving this is the only way I am afraid.
