v40 Limited Edition
Enjoy the warm rich sound that valve amplification provides now in a retro walnut finish.
Following on from critically acclaimed press reviews for our v40 hybrid tube amplifier, the v40 Limited Edition is now available in a sumptuous high gloss walnut finish.
Matching high gloss walnut loudspeakers are offered as part of the system.
Primarily sold as a combined amplifier/loudspeaker system, both products can also be purchased separately.
Recommended by musicians....
Jamiroquai and session guitarist Rob Harris "I must say it sounds incredible, whatever the valves are doing it brings a warmth and clarity to the music"
Rock and Blues Musician Wily Bo Walker "Absolutely fabulous, the depth of the double bass and three dimensional quality of the recording is testament to the care of the engineers who recorded the album in the first place. The Blue Aura v40 LE system brings you in to that space. Brilliant!"
Our Blackline range goes from strength to strength with the latest addition, the v40 Limited Edition.
The v40 LE amplifier has all the technical attributes of the standard v40 and is presented in a high gloss walnut finish.
Both sonically and aesthetically matched, the ps40 LE loudspeakers are offered as part of the system.
Eight coats of clear lacquer have been applied to the amplifier facia and the loudspeaker enclosures to give a deep, luxurious finish to the walnut veneers.
As a result of customer demand we have developed a new loudspeaker to partner the v40 LE amplifier, an upgrade from our standard ps40's.
A slightly larger enclosure is used to allow increased cabinet volume.
The tweeter selected by our acoustic engineers for the ps40 LE is an AMT (Air Motion Transformer) type. AMT tweeters offer excellent transient response and low distortion ratios, resulting in a more natural and musical ambience to be heard.
The low frequency drive unit is a 4.5” Hemp impregnated cone type. Hemp has less cone break up and distortion than other fibre coned drive units and improves tonality and resolution.
High quality audio components are used for the filter network ensuring delivery of a clean audio signal.
Both the amplifier and loudspeakers have Limited Edition insignia and are supplied in bespoke packaging.

A super little amplifier which glows in the dark like a Sci-Fi retro-style power station and has produced beautiful sound from every audio source that I've plugged into it over the last few weeks. This will make you rediscover your music collection.
The Bluetooth input option is very useful when you're accessing music stored on a network drive via an I-Pad. It really is worth adding a high quality powered sub-woofer to bring just that little bit extra to the bass. I'm glad that they thought of providing a sub out socket to make that so easy.
I've tried it with a Pro-Ject turntable, which produces a line level output from an Ortofon magnetic pickup cartridge and that works well too. Don't insult this amp by using a cheap ceramic pickup - it deserves better than that!
This was the best Christmas present that I have ever bought myself and I didn't even have to say "Oh, you shouldn't have........."
