Kratos Logo

 

Kratos’ name directly comes from its most important feature: power. In Greek mythology, indeed, Kratos was the god of strength, might and power.
Kratos is based on Pathos’ hybrid circuit, with tubes pre-stage and Mosfet final stage; it has 200W for each channel.

But that’s not all. Kratos’ pre-stage and final stage are clearly separated, with a prestigious pre-out and direct input to final stage; both pre-out and final stages are balanced XLR .

 

Warm, deep, dynamic sound

Its preamplification circuit is in pure class A; it uses Tung-Sol ECC803s tubes: sound is warm, deep, dynamic.
Final Mosfet stage in class AB is strongly polarized in class A; its great power both at 8 and 4 Ohms makes Kratos able to drive any loudspeaker.
Kratos is also headphone amplifier with a dedicated circuitry (2 W @ 32 Ω).

Design is inspired by Logos, the great Pathos’ historic product. But this is a simple aesthetic affinity: similarities stops here. Kratos hides new technical solutions which make it the leading-edge-product between non-InPol amplifiers.
Kratos’ basic features (5 RCA, 2 balanced XLR, digital display, remote-controlled functions) could be improved by a DAC (optional).

Thanks to the optional DAC module featuring the HiDac Mk2 board, Kratos will be able to receive all your music from your PC by USB or from a digital source by S/PDIF.
