  • Sale
  • Regular price $1,099.00


This is a very special limited availability product.  We are offering this because we have a few thick silver SL face plates left over after switching to the fully remote Transcendence 10 SLR model.

A brand new unit available for quick delivery right now.

The T10 audio circuits are an improvement of our award winning Transcendence 8 tube design. In addition, we have recently completed extensive testing and refinement of our already class leading layout practices and employed those findings into the Transcendence 10 design. The Transcendence 10 is an astonishingly natural, engaging, dynamic, high-resolution preamplifier that can interface seamlessly into and improve the most demanding audio systems.

The T10 RB is shipped with 2 premium select 6DJ8 tubes. 6CG7 or 6N1P tubes can also be used.

Only the highest quality parts are used. We use 1% precision metal film resistors and all capacitors in the signal path are select polypropylene types.

The Transcendence 10 SL also includes an exquisite headphone amplifier capable of driving the most demanding headphone loads.

Power Supply and Layout
AVA has long been an advocate of rock solid power supplies, and the power supply used in the Transcendence 10 SL is no exception. The high voltage supplies are based around six active high voltage regulators, one for each tube section. This power supply design takes supply noise and interaction down to nearly zero. In addition, there are separate regulated power supplies for the tube heaters and the headphone amplifier. Smoothing capacitors are carefully selected modern, high-reliability, high-capacity units.
The main circuit board uses multiple isolated ground planes strategically interconnected to eliminate the effects of ground currents. A very quiet custom made shielded power transformer is used.

The Transcendence 10 power supplies are incredibly quiet and rock stable platforms on which our audio circuits can perform their best.

SL Chassis Design.

The SL Chassis has a precision remote volume control, precision balance control, six sets of line level inputs (with one input being used for the optional phono section, if specified), tape in and tape out jacks, and two sets of line audio outputs.

It has push button controls for tape monitoring, stereo/mono, low gain, and filter functions.

The premium silver face plate is finished with our incredibly durable double-anodized process. All input and output jacks are gold plated, and a removable IEC power cord is provided.

Dimensions: 17" wide x 12" deep x 3.5" high. Shipping weight is 17 pounds.
