We are excited to announce that the latest member of our Qualiton Classic Series, the Qualiton X200 Integrated Stereo Power Amplifier is finally here and ready to production.
The Qualiton X200 is designed to serve analog enthusiasts who need a combination of a high-performance vacuum tube power amplifier and a versatile preamplifier, along with sophisticated technical details, built into a single chassis. In this way, perfect matching is achieved - both sonically and technically - between the main signal processing sections.
The most important aspect of the design process was to meet the widest possible range of user needs in a compact footprint. All internal circuits were designed from scratch, avoiding the usual clichés throughout, to create a complete all-rounder. The X200 can be used as a separate preamplifier, as an integrated power amplifier, as a stand-alone power amplifier with direct inputs, or as a headphone amplifier, but other configurations are possible.

The low noise analog front-end built around a wideband and transparent circuit and features a phono preamp with enhanced precision too. Line level and subwoofer outputs are absolute necessary in this category, these ports are included on the back. We've added a real specialty too: a built-in, studio grade Parallel Equalizer. This kind of tools is primarily used as a master channel effect in recording studios, to bring fresh air into the mix, as a finishing touch. We've found that this effect can also be a huge help at home as well, as it can breath new life into certain, not so vivid records.
The balanced power amp is based on KT120 (optionally KT150) beam tetrodes and our latest, fully symmetrical output transformer design. Due to the symmetrical circuitry, we were able to further reduce the output noise of the output stage. In addition, our new BIAS section on the front panel makes it really easy to check and fine-tune the bias levels of the output tubes.

Reviewers Choice Award 2022 - Part Time Audiophile

"X200 was my cup of espresso. Colossal soundstage, glorious midrange, clean highs, and pounding bass." 

I loved the sound of this integrated amp. Is it summit-level performance? Not really, but it gets close. The MM phono input is above average, and the line-level inputs fed by a DAC sounded seriously good. Going from the VAC preamp directly into the power amp section (especially with KT-150s) was a stone-cold win. Combine build quality, usage options, and you have a lovely package for the price. 

I can easily see an X200 to be the perfect thing for a listener whose taste has become a bit more discriminating than the average listener and thinks they want to start building a bonafide audiophile system. Start with an Audio Hungary Qualiton X200, add a good streamer/DAC or CD player and a pair of stand-mounted monitors and call it done. The phono stage is plenty good enough to dust off the old SL-1200 with something like a Hana or an Ortofon MM cart to get the platter party going if that seems like a plan. Later on, if the system grows, the power amp might be the last thing a user considers upgrading, if at all. 

Any minute sonic compromises made by Qualiton for this price point are of a very mature and thought-out nature. If this is the kind of system you want to build, the Audio Hungary Qualiton X200 should be at the top of your list for a serious audition. 

This amp and its baby brother were reviewed by a very experienced audiophiles as coming very, very close to a world famous $20,000 amp. Yes, the sound is that good.

Audio Hungary has taken all they've learned with all their other products and put all of it into one incredible integrated amp. The price makes it mind blowing for the performance it delivers. No joking. No hyperbole.

While we await more blurb here's some facts that show how versatile this Integrated is - be sure to check out the massive specs in that tab.
