About the Bob Carver Black Beauty 305

The Black Beauty 305 Mono Block Amplifier is the perfect blend of form and function and the ideal choice for serious music listeners. This amplifier was designed to drive the most demanding speakers and features a high impedance input, an automatic DC restorer circuit, a "set and forget" bias adjustment, and low idle current which greatly increases output tube life. It has an ultra-wide bandwidth output transformers with interleaved windings capable of the most nuanced voice as well as huge peak output capacity. Selectable feedback control allows the user to change the sound of the amplifier from vintage classical to modern contemporary.
