The Mistral MT-34 is a 40 watt per channel stereo integrated amplifier that features two heavy-duty toroidal power transformers, solid-state rectifiers and oversized Raytheon capacitors for high voltage. One of the toroidal transformers is dedicated for high voltage (335V), while the other transformer is for filament voltage and negative bias voltage.The preamplifier section of the unit consists of one 12AX7 vacuum tube for each channel set in a shunt regulated push-pull configuration. The power amplifier section of the unit features one 12AU7 and two EL-34 tubes in shunt regulated push-pull arrangement for each channel. Fixed biasing is incorporated for each EL-34 vacuum tube.
The compliment of tubes for the power amplifier section are Chinese Shuguang branded valves, which have been noted to be good performers by many tube enthusiasts and are based on a classic German design that is known for its low mechanical noise. Around back, the unit features well-made binding posts with taps for 4ohm and 8 ohm loads, two high quality sets of RCA inputs with a toggle switch to select each input and a detachable power cord and power switch. Looking at the front, there is simply a rather large yet elegant volume control directly in the center of the panel. The look is clean and sophisticated with a solidly built chassis that is double layered in a high gloss black finish.The unit is sturdy and really pleasant on the eyes with a demure footprint for such a hefty piece. Also included is a cage that nicely protects the tubes and little fingers, but lets the beauty of the tube glow shine through, something that every tube lover covets. S umming it All Up. Okay, tube amplifiers are not for everyone. There is always the chance that a tube will die, the amplifier is not properly biased and the maintenance needed to keep up the unit is more that the user bargained for, but the rewards can many times outweigh these minor inconveniences. With tubes, you get warmth, detail and the flexibility to experiment with different combinations that can make a real difference. The MT-34 is a solid choice in which to enter into the world of tube amplification.
Considering its sturdy build, use of quality components, aesthetic appeal and sonic performance, there is very little to say other than it is just a wonderful unit.
