A completely new product to the Blue Aura range, the v40 Amplifier has been designed to provide the best possible sonic performance. The transformers are high efficiency toroidal type, offering better heat dissipation and low leakage current resulting in very low distortion levels. The use of European valves help to produce the warm, rich sound associated with valve amplifiers.
With its fine workmanship and meticulous finishing, the ps40 loudspeaker impresses both by its power and the attractiveness of its design.
The front of the loudspeaker has an easily removable, magnetically held grille to create a clean front surface when the grille is removed
The amplifier uses two audio processing valves along with a volume indicator valve. Connect all your source devices using the supplied cables or by Bluetooth. v40 also benefits from a sub out feature allowing subwoofers to be connected to enrich the overall music experience.
The ps40 loudspeakers are fitted with high quality, gold plated binding posts with thumb nuts to ensure loudspeaker connection cable is held securely, whilst ensuring the signal path from the amplifier to the filter network located inside the cabinet meets the least possible resistance

Many thanks for the v40 amp which arrived with me promptly on Thursday, 6th July.
I am delighted with the physical appearance of the unit, which I think is very well finished, as well as being neat and elegant in design - a viewpoint which was also endorsed by my wife who, like many women, isn't overly enthused by the aesthetics of hi-fi boxes. I've now set up the v40, using my Lenovo Ideapad 510 laptop (which holds my CD collection, ripped using Windows Media Player at the best lossless level), which I use solely as a music server, along with my little Sonus Faber Toy speakers - the whole comprising a supplementary system which is situated in my lounge.
To date I have tested the system with a range of tracks - generally I listen to a wide range of vocal and instrumental music, but I'm not into rock - and my initial reaction is that sonically the v40 is a superb little amplifier, very detailed, and with that smoothness of valve reproduction. Overall, a lovely sound.
Many thanks for all the information which you have supplied, and for a beautiful product - it certainly lives up to the review which I'd read some months ago in "HiFi Choice", and also the information which you have made available online.
Best wishes for your continued success
