Raven Audio Nighthawk Integrated Amplifier


Raven Audio

Raven Audio is featuring its Nighthawk Integrated Amplifier as an example of how “tubes do it better” at an affordable price point.  All that’s needed is a source and a pair of efficient speakers (sensitivity of 87 to 96dB/1w/1m).

The Nighthawk is an integrated amplifier that brings together the preamp and amplifier sections within a single chassis – resulting in shorter signal paths and less cables, along with requiring less space on your rack.  With self-biasing, replacing or experimenting with different tubes is virtually plug-n-play.

The chassis is manufactured of sturdy 14-gauge carbon steel with an aircraft-grade aluminum faceplate and handles are made of carbon steel with knobs machined from aircraft-grade aluminum.  The folded carbon steel plate gets a high-quality primer and several coats of high-grade automotive enamel, which is baked and clear-coated several times with aircraft-grade sealant. 

The Nighthawk Integrated delivers 20 watt-per-channel and along with being a wideband amplifier is said to deliver a smooth, detailed and very present palpable sound.  

Raven Audio’s Nighthawk Integrated Amplifier is currently available at a MSRP of: $1,595 U.S.  More details can be found at: www.RavenAudio.com.
