What kind of amp is PSVANE TC1 on earth?
PSVANE is one of the four best tube producers in the world. WE300B and T845 are all produced by this company. Over 80% of its items are exported to abroad. The company currently is the only one that has the ability to design tubes and power amp at the same time in the globe. Its customers include the businessmen, political VIPs and artists. The products are well received by its fans, they said: PSVANE is a little expensive but the sound is indeed excellent!
— TC1, the PSVANE Heritage Series, adopts the KT88 Push-Pull amp and the power is over 35W. The item is mostly exported to Europe and South America, so we are very strict with the parameters to make it in accordance with the foreign requirements. Amp of 35W is good enough to drive any HIFI voice box in your home! It is much better than EL34 in the any aspect of the voice.
If you have used TC1, you will completely subvert the KT88 Push-Pull amp in your memory. In the past, KT88 is the low price product and its voice is rough and raspy. But now we PSVANE make it different! The voice become nature and fluent at present. T845, which is sold in Europe with the price of 10 thousand RMB, is designated by many distributors as the flagship loudspeaker to drive Dynaudio and ATC and well received by every user at home and abroad. Thus, we can find that although the two products have different costing and customers, TC1 does inherit the voice style and the unique musicianship advantage of PSVANE and has a high performance-price ratio.
TC1 is nearly a perfect amp in sound performance, standard of workmanship, function equipment and the sales price.
TC1 is completely hand welded and with the same technology as other similar products. Its 30 seconds delay function fully guarantees the stability of the tube so there will not be problems after the boot. 3.5mm headphone can also be used in TC1 that makes it can be a music player sometimes. Beside, the well-made aluminium remote control has enhanced the convenience and taste of TC1. Many people may ask the same question: why does the product only sell 3000 RMB? Actually there are two ways to control the price in this industry. One is cost control and the other is scale effect. However, cost control usually makes compromises in products. Thus we chose the latter means and promise that the TC1 you got has the highest performance-price ratio voice in China. Some foreign distributors even did experiment to DIY such an item with the same price as TC1 but only found it very difficult to do it.
A Completely Analysis of TC1
- The soul of amps: transformers
As the practitioners in this industry for several years, we got that the soul of amps must be the transformer. T845 proves that the reasons why PSVANE could make the most comprehensive and best amps in China are actually because of the transformers. For TC1, we are extremely strict with the selecting of materials. The result proves that the adopted output transformer and the power supply transformer make the sound performance rather excellent.
— The core of amp: Tubes
The excellent performance of TC1 largely depends on the tubes of PSVANE. As the core of amp, the voice and the quality of the tubes decides the amp’s success or failure. PSVANE, as the leading enterprise in this industry, always applies its tubes in middle- and high-level or even flagship amplifiers. On the contrary, other companies usually buy their tubes from outside and thus the performance or the bias may discount the product.
— Absolute Zealot’s favorite Materials
TC1 adopts a large number of imported components, which ranges from the large-size parts such as special coupling capacitance for advanced audio and the Electrolytic Capacitors to some key parts such as the single crystal copper and 6N copper connectors from Europe. No other components from the retail channel can compare with.
— Perfectly Design both inside and outside
Outside, TC1 is a rare work with an excellent designing sense in the industry. There is a Chinese eight trigrams on its front aluminum panel, which well conveys the harmony, coexisting, integration and nature. These elements happened to be in accordance with music. Inside, the circuit of TC1 passed through repeated optimization and finally adjusted the sound together with transformers and tubes. In order to pay more attention to users’ experience, our overseas cooperating teams didn’t over-pursuit the power size but chose the way of bias controlling. That makes the work points be accurate for a very long time and it also convenient to change an advanced PSVANE tubes in the future.
— Other Information: the integrated detection means, the perfect package and the good after-sales service
To correspond to the basic requirements of the first-class brand amp factory, TC1 has the integrated detection means and the perfect package. Whether the detection of the separated tubes and machine platform, or the static and dynamic test and the resistance of cracking and pressure of the whole machine, we do our best to give a full guarantee to our customers. At the same time, we provide PSVANE the best after-sales service on TC1: quickly, wholly and closely.

How to compare with the competing products?
— For the same price, we get a better machine!
To compare actually is easy! Usually you can spend 3000 RMB at home to buy a nice EL34 push-pull amp, but it doesn’t always have the same brand image and quality of PSVANE, also it seldom has the functions of remote controlling, headphone amplifier, handed workmanship and reassuring after-sales service. Moreover, TC1 applies KT88 whose price is two times as high as EL34. In order to make the KT88 tubes work normally, the advanced transformer standard should be used. Actually, it is these difficulties that create TC1.
— For the same type, we get cheaper price and better quality!
You can compare TC1 with some other machines of the same type. The price of other products usually ranges from five to ten thousand RMB. It means our item should have been a mainstream product which is worth more than seven thousand RMB! There also are some cheaper KT88 push-pull amps in the market indeed which are only sold for two thousand Yuan. But you can try to answer the following questions: Do these machines have a registered brand? What’s their brand image? What the appearance, the workmanship and the user reports of their items? What’s the condition of their inside components? Are they welded by hands? Do they provide aluminium remote control? Are they equipped with some common or interior tubes? If you try to find the answers to such questions, I believe you will get a clear judgment!
