The Wright Audio
Royale SE
  SERIES 2A
Single-Ended Triode Stereo Integrated Amplifier
 

Wright Audio Royale SE2A

 

The Wright Audio Royale SE Series 2A 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 solid-state, Class D or higher-powered 'push-pull' amplifier types.

It accepts three analog sources of any type except phono and utilizes only six 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.

This model was created to be used in conjunction with a powered (sub)woofer system.  Using a separate powered woofer relieves the amplifier of most of the power-robbing bass duty enabling the system to play as loud as one could want in an average-sized listening room with speakers having a sensitivity of least 90 db / 1 watt / 1 meter.

The Royale SE Series 2 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.  A custom-made, matched-channel Alps conductive plastic volume control, polypropylene and foil capacitors and output transformers created for wide bandwidth and high resolution have been employed.  The amplifier requires no maintenance or adjustment other than normal tube replacement.

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

The Royale SE Series 2 Integrated Amplifier includes several features for the discriminating listener and advanced audiophile:

1.)  3 line inputs
2.)  A preamplifier section output with its own front-panel volume control to conveniently and independently adjust the bass output level for the (sub)woofer according to taste and the program source quality. 
3.)  A recording output which can also be used for a separate headphone amplifier, for a Bluetooth or FM Stereo transmitter for 'whole house' music.
4.)  An additional gain stage for greater dynamic sound than the SE6 and the SE610 models.

Whatever the configuration, the Wright Audio Royale SE Series 2 Integrated Amplifier will suddenly involve you more intimately with the music you love.

Royale SE Series 2A Instruction Manual
 


"I just wanted to tell you how much I like the amp that I purchased from your company.  The sound is wonderful and fills the living room with music that is as close to a live performance than one could hope.  I recently played some classical music for the Choral Director of the San Francisco Symphony Chorus and he was absolutely astonished how realistic and rich a sound I was able to achieve...I am so grateful that I stumbled upon your company on the web and that I purchased this amp.  I couldn't have done better."  Michael (CA)

"Fabulous product."  Jerry L. (FL)
