The Wright Audio
Lolita
Single-Ended Triode Stereo Integrated Amplifier

Shown with JJ Blue E34L Output Tubes, not included.
Matched Pair of KT77's  is included.

The Wright Audio Lolita Integrated Amplifier is an 'all-in-one',  single-ended, triode-connected tube stereo amplifier.  It is characterized by a more vivid, clear and harmonically-rich sound with greater dimensionality than any solid-state, Class D or higher-powered 'push-pull' amplifier type.

It accepts two analog sources of any type except phono and utilizes only five tubes.  A separate phono preamplifier stage is required for use with a phono cartridge.  The amplifier is compatible with all modern digital sources as long as an analog output is provided.

The Lolita Integrated Amplifier provides greater clarity and more dynamics than other tube single-ended designs.  This is due to a careful selection of parts. a circuit topology and operating parameters all chosen for sound quality through extensive listening tests.  Like the more expensive Wright Audio amplifiers, a custom-made, matched-channel Alps conductive-plastic volume control, polypropylene and foil capacitors and transformers created for wide bandwidth and high resolution have been employed.  The tubes are all 'self biased' into 'Class A' service and the amplifier requires no maintenance or adjustment other than normal tube replacement.

Separate left and right channel preamplifier power supply capacitors ensure added channel separation for lifelike stereo imaging.  There are no solid-state devices, integrated circuits,  transistors or circuit boards anywhere in the amplifier.

Paired with a suitable higher efficiency speaker system (rated at 90 db / 1 watt / 1 meter or higher), substitution of the Lolita Single-Ended Triode Integrated Amplifier into your music system will suddenly involve you more intimately with the music you love.

FEATURES AND SPECIFICATIONS

  • Tube complement: (2) 6922; (1) GZ34 / 5AR4; (2) KT77, E34L, EL34, EL34B or 6CA7 connected in triode mode.   Supplied with  matched pair of  JJ KT77 tubes.  

  • 7 watts per channel output.

  • Frequency Response:  25 to 40,000 cycles within 1 db.

  • Controls: Power, Inputs A and B switch, Stereo Volume, Left Channel and Right Channel Level Presets.
    The Left / Right level presets replace the more standard "Balance" control which is a 'half-set' control", meaning the signal is always going through half the potentiometer, not good for sound.  Normally, these level presets are turned all the way up.  Lower the louder channel in order to balance the volume of the two channels. Turning both controls down can also compensate for unusually high output source components.

  • 2 switchable inputs.  Accommodates all standard line-level sources.   If you require more connectivity options, please see the Royale SE Series 2 Stereo Integrated Amplifier.

  • Vacuum tube, choke filtered power supply provides the highest resolution, most pure sound, low noise and slower warm-up for longer parts life.

  • Electronic noise: Inaudible

  • Separate left and right channel preamplifier / driver tube power supply capacitors for enhanced channel separation and sonic imaging.

  • 8 ohms speaker output. 4 and 16 ohms available as special order.

  • Gold - plated jacks and heavy duty, 30 amp - rated, 5 - way binding posts which accept banana plugs.

  • Detachable IEC power cable.

  • RoHS compliant parts used where applicable.

  • Externally mounted fuse.

  • All point - to - point wiring.  Non-obsolescent construction.  No circuit boards for ease of installation of future upgrades.

  • Glossy, black-anodized aluminum heavy duty chassis with one-eighth inch thick top plate for minimum electrical and mechanical interference providing quiet operation.  Solid cherry wood sides.

  • Size:  Compact 13" x 11 3/4" x 8 1/2"  high

  • Net Weight: 24 lbs.

  • Available in 105, 120, 220, or 240 volt, 50 / 60 Cycle versions.

  • THREE YEAR WARRANTY  (Tubes: 3 Months)

  • Designed and assembled in the U.S.A. using U.S. and Global components.

"This is one amazing little amp!  And it really shines playing my vinyl from the 70's, ELO, Eagles, Klaatu, even Pink Floyds Dark Side of the Moon (complete with the manufactured warp).
In summary, I am one happy customer."
(Bill W.)

"The Lolita Amplifier so exceeded even my high expectations as to seem like a minor miracle. 
 It sounds absolutely wonderful, and that is regardless of the type of music I play through it. 
 
Everyone who has heard it loves it as well and a few people who thought they didn't really care about music or hi-fi now have at least a little enlightenment.  I think it is a tremendous bargain.  It is so beautifully built and great fun to look at while it is working its magic.

As my listening room is small, the amp has no problem driving these speakers:  Pardigm Atoms, AR 216PS, PSB 300, Cambridge Soundworks Model Six.

I purchased a pair of Klipsch Heresy III speakers to mate with it.  What a combination!  In my small listening room, with certain material, for example an old LP of Jacqueline du Pre playing a cello Concerto, I have never heard sound so lifelike.  At the same time, this system doesn't back down while playing "Young Man's Blues," by the Who, from Live at Leeds (CD).

I am so very thankful that I discovered your company.  Thank you for building this amp!"

I would say it's something between a match made in Hi Fi Heaven and a marriage in High End Paradise."
