Product Description

Pathos Ethos is a powerful hybrid tube/transistor integrated amplifier supporting a wide range of sources from balanced analogue XLR to digital USB. It meets demands of two-channel purists, while catering for those interested in using digital sources.

Performance

Based on the acclaimed Pathos hybrid circuit with tube pre-stage and MOSFET power stage, this integrated amplifier is capable of 100W per channel. Ethos features the capability of importing 24-Bit 192kHz digital signals from digital players and other digital devices, and converting them to music of uncompromised quality, thanks to its built-in Pathos D/A converter available optionally.

Connections

Supplied with five unbalanced line sources via RCA phono and 2 balanced line sources via XLR plugs, the Ethos also has four video inputs and an optional built-in 24-bit/192kHz HiDac. It inputs via two USB ports (Type A/B) and an S/PDIF coaxial RCA socket. A stereo pre out pair and a mono sub-out are also provided.

There`s a relay protection system that mutes the amp while everything warms up and settles down - this takes about 30 seconds. Each input has its own individual volume control memory and can be set independently. This means you can adjust levels to cope with sources of differing sensitivities.

Hybrid Amplifier

The pre-amp section is entirely tube; pure Class-A and based around a pair of 6922 twin-triode tubes. The power amp section is a true dual-mono solid-state design that delivers over 100 watts per channel into 8 ohms - or 200 watts into 4 ohms.

Remarkable for an integrated, it is also possible to bridge the output creating a single-channel amplifier of 270 watts. The specs too are impressive with a frequency response from 2Hz to 200kHz (+/-0.5dB) and 0.01 percent distortion.

Construction

Weighing in at a hefty 20 kilos, the Ethos is a well-made piece of kit. The casework features a combination of steel top and bottom plates, with heavy cast-alloy heatsinks and front panel. The heatsinks are extruded in the shape of the Pathos brand logo when viewed from above.This amp is well finished and solidly built radiating high quality and class.

Audio Quality

Pathos Ethos produces a winning combination of immediacy and clarity. The sound has excellent focus, lots of fine detail and plenty of power. The bottom-end is taut and powerful while the transient attack and wide dynamic swings are handled with ease - the sound expands impressively with no hint of compression.

The combination of tubes in the preamp adds a degree of richness and warmth delivering the smooth refinement of a good valve amplifier with the extra power and drive of a solid-state.
