The world’s most ultra high-end performance class – a triode power amplifier with full automatic biasing.

More power, more quality, more music enjoyment – the new Audio Valve Baldur 300 superior.
Audio Valve has spared no pain and expense to provide you with this amazing delicacy of musical
quality whose overwhelming sound and power will definitely impress you. Convince yourself!
This highest-class product emphasizes the excellent basic properties of the original Baldur 300 even more.

 

Provided with a first class high capacitive condenser bank and a premium high accurate output multilayer transformer with access for 4, 6 and 8 ohms this unit is more than first – grade. The multiplicity of accesses offers new possibilities in the use of different speakers and provides an even bigger scope of musical space. The exorbitant high power breaks a new world with an unprecedented sound, quality and pleasure to the listener.

More than 15 years of experience have leaded to this excellent product which trumps even the excellent functions of his predecessor, the Baldur 300. The distinguished technique is even more improved and filed. Only the best, expensive, highest quality components were used.

Who can claim to know the world of tube amplifiers, if they do not know the Audio Valve products!

These unique music-technical jewels in tube technology, hand produced by Audio Valve, signify and prove, as hardly any other like product, that the technically viable in terms of quality and reproduction can be accomplished.

Maximum effort combined with virtually unlimited investment in development reached its peak, the new design “BALDUR 300” in the BALDUR line.

As a result of this investment, Audio Valve offers an ultimately refined and unique state-of-the-art tube amplifier weighing of 45 kg which has a justifiable top position in the category “power triode class – tube amplifier”.

But really, is there any other triode power amplifier in this top category apart from BALDUR 300 with an output of nearly 240 watt sinus at 1% distortion?

Sophisticated design and technology form a harmonious symbiosis which is reflected in its outstanding reproduction characteristics coupled with an incredibly high operational reliability for tube amplifiers.

Auto-Bias regulates, controls and safeguards protective circuits and a further 800 components in the amplifier thus making the BALDUR 300 virtually indestructible.

The exchange of tubes or reconnection of loudspeakers during operation are things which only can be done with BALDUR – or have you ever tried to disconnect a loudspeaker from an amplifier during operation at a High-End trade fair and managed to leave the hall before the booth staff could kill you?

With BALDUR 300 the listener acquires a piece of German High End history written by a man who – as no other – has created his own ideas regarding tube amplifiers with untiring strength for decades in an unorthodox but brilliant, competent and qualified way, who promptly and ingeniously puts his experience gathered over decades into action in all product series made by AutoValve and in the BALDUR 300 of course.

A product which in every respect is totally committed to the principle “Made in Germany” and which you and your grandchildren will enjoy for decades.

An encounter with BALDUR means feeling the difference – no ordinary tube amplifier boasts of being a relic of past times. An encounter with BALDUR is an encounter of a special kind. This encounter eliminates your fear of tubes and gives you the feeling of superior reliability, never ending power and endurance. Very soon you will begin to appreciate, love and enjoy the charismatic features and time after time be enchanted by the charm of BALDUR.

Even the Baldur 200 had legendary characteristics. BALDUR 300 with almost double the power will definitely continue this trend. With Baldur 300+ you play in the king class.
When is your date with BALDUR?

JEAN PAUL HIRAGA

The test of the Baldur 70 monophonic blocks done almost one year ago has pleased us, their price not being over 4000 € the pair, putting them in the leading group of best deals in amplifiers with tubes linking generous available power (80 W RMS) and musical qualities due to the optimal use of the double triodes 6AS7G. On this limited series, the beauty, the sounds refinement, as well as the natural of the stereophonic scene reaches even higher while referring to the same sonorous politic. The few 240 W RMS available bring on the voices, the piano as well as on the most various sounds a sonorous field, an even more valuable support, such as the Baldur 70 but better everywhere. The spectral balance appears very slightly decreasing towards the shrill is not a default. We get used to it so well that going back to common electrical seem to go towards an excessive luminosity. A complete success at a studied price which will charm the melanomists.

 

ROBERT LACRAMPE

At first look these mono blocks impress quite by their sizes, their weight, the calories that they release. But the divine surprise is revealed in the sonorous performance which top the work! It is – on my opinion – the best hearing of the year. I know that there is still the December edition but I am ready to put my hand in the fire of their tubes: these power units will not soon be dethroned. Which surprised me the most, was to find under the same cover the fruity of the tubes and the unlimited energy feeling usually provided by more powerful transistorized amplifiers. It is extremely rare to combine both! But it is not all: The AudioValve know how to restore the pianissimis with grace, fluidity, lightness that the stronger one of 1000 W do not have! Listening to a piano is delightful: the instrument is released in all its width and without the message being strike. An unforgettable listening… with one of some 300B.

 one reason for the excellent musical playback quality of the audioValve amplifiers is the fact that the output transformer is based on near perfect transmission characteristics. Audiovalve power amplifiers reproduce rectangles at 10 khz, which otherwise are only known from the theoretical ideal treatise on textbooks. Anyone attentively studying the American audio press has probably already found many of these images that are not nearly close to the theoretical ideal – just as audiovalve amplifiers do, so the success of the musical reproduction of audiovalve amplifiers is unstoppable and will prevail, everything only a matter of time.

TEST REVIEW BALDUR 300+


AUDIO FILE  translation à La Revue du Son, France , issue dec. 06

JEAN HIRAGA

The test of the Baldur 70 monophonic blocks done almost one year ago has pleased us, their price not being over 4000 € the pair, putting them in the leading group of best deals in amplifiers with tubes linking generous available power (80 W RMS) and musical qualities due to the optimal use of the double triodes 6AS7G. On this limited series, the beauty, the sounds refinement, as well as the natural of the stereophonic scene reaches even higher while referring to the same sonorous politic. The few 240 W RMS available bring on the voices, the piano as well as on the most various sounds a sonorous field, an even more valuable support, such as the Baldur 70 but better everywhere. The spectral balance appears very slightly decreasing towards the shrill is not a default. We get used to it so well that going back to common electrical seem to go towards an excessive luminosity. A complete success at a studied price which will charm the melanomists.

  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    Willi H.

    Endlich sind sie da….
    Hallo an alle die mich nicht kennen, und insbesondere an Helmut Becker !
    Vor ca. 14 Tagen habe ich meine Baldur 300 Plus in Kassel abgeholt, und nach Köln gebracht,
    zu zweit hochgebracht, und in meiner Gier alleine ausgepackt (die Bandscheibe merke ich immer noch) und in Position gebracht.
    Schnell angeschlossen und Power auf On ,und nach ungelogen 10 Minuten (Neugeräte) war es genauso oder Vielleich noch besser ,wie bei den beiden Testgeräten die ich vor einigen Monaten zur Verfügung hatte ,ein unglaubliches Füllhorn an Musik !

    Jetzt Sind 14 Tage vorbei, und trotz des schönen Wetters habe ich hier mit meiner Frau ,und manchmal auch mit meinem Nachbar (der Wörtlich sagte : wenn ich Stereo Affin wäre und nicht Souround , dann die Baldur habe noch nichts vergleichbares gehört !) viele Stunden gehört und würde behaupten ,jetzt sind sie eingespielt .
    Ich beschäftige mich jetzt Zeit meines Lebens mit Musik ,ich wage es behaupten zu können was gut oder schlecht ist ,nah oder fern ,was ich aber hier erhöre, kann ich gar nicht richtig beschreiben ?
    Antwort : räumliche Abbildung wird in meinem Hörzimmer neu definiert ,beziehungsweise erlebt .
    Ich sitze hier manchmal mit offenem Mund ,und könnte bei dem ein oder anderem Musikstück (einem Glas Wein) heulen vor Glück !
    Das erste Kleine Fazit:
    Die Baldur 300 ist in meiner Kette Musikalisch das was ich all die Jahre vermisst habe ( wusste wahrscheinlich gar nichts davon) das Ende der Fahnenstange. Mehr geht glaube ich nicht, deshalb
    Spart euch euer Geld und investiert nicht in teure Strom oder Chinch Kabel, sondern in vernünftige Elektronik (nochmals Danke an H. Becker)und das was dann noch übrig bleibt in ein paar gute Platten, oder guten Wein .!
    am Wochenende waren Westdeutsche HiFi Tage in Bonn ,und ich muss sagen ,nirgends ist es schöner als zuhause…..
    Soviel erst mal für heute von mir ,und ich kann euch in die Runde sagen das der Titel des zweiten Teils Lautet : Mit der Baldur hören ist wie das Betreten einer Kathedrale…….

      Toll, dass wir Dir diese Freude machen konnten Willi, wir haben Bilder Deiner Anlage mit auf die BALDUR
      Hauptseite übernommen. Wir wünschen Dir viel und lange Freude an den Endstufen – Team AudioValve

    The result of all this weight and size is an amplifier which is sweet and delicate sounding when called for, yet authoritative and in control when needed. The tubes used are the very musical 6AS7 output tubes, which are biased automatically by the amplifiers proprietary internal circuitry. The result is an excellent balance across the gamut of musical styles and tastes. I played everything from delicate original instrument chamber music and soft vocal solos to loud, rowdy rock and large orchestral pieces … all at various volume levels. The Baldur sailed through it all with equal aplomb. Two common knocks against vacuum tube amplifiers in general is that they are too fussy or that they don’t provide the bass power and control of their solid state brethren. Well, the Baldur is only one of many examples in the tube world which makes either of those statements meaningless and untrue. Sure, there are some tube (valve) amps which require a bit of fussing or which don’t have very good bass … sometimes both shortcomings … but not this one and certainly not all of the others either!

    The Baldur had a musical footprint which was obvious yet paradoxically “uncolored” in terms of it’s sonic qualities. There was no distinct impression that this is a valve amplifier garnered during listening tests. It’s bass is tight and well controlled without being over-damped and “dry” sounding. (“damping” is the electronic means by which an amplifier controls extraneous woofer motion; commonly referred to as “damping factor”) Track after track left the impression of a well focused yet large and deep soundstage. Ambient retrieval is very good, indicating a low noise floor. {This is an area where all the solid state amplifiers have an advantage over all the tube amps in this roundup … they are inherently less noisy when there is no music is being played.} The noise floor becomes a factor in retrieval of ambience and overall detail. The Baldur did give a very good sense of ambience when called upon and the images it portrayed were quite holographic and correctly proportional to each other. High frequencies are rendered without a hint of glare or overdone presence. Cymbals, bells, triangles and the harmonic tones of a children’s choir are very well served by the Baldur. Another area which can be well noticed between differing power amplifiers is the sensation of correct (musical) pace and “timing”. The Baldur, along with most others in the roundup, is a real champ in this respect, always leaving the listener with the feeling that the reproduction is spot-on. The transparency of any amplifiers ability to peer into the soundstage is something which can not be measured, but which is immediately apparent to anyone who has done an A/B with two amps having vastly differing capabilities in this respect. The Baldur is a very transparent amplifier, peering clearly into the soundstage and allowing us to sense the spacing between individual instruments and vocalists quite clearly.

    Hello Mr. Becker,
    First of all, many thanks for providing the two output stages Baldur 300.
    Of course, it is very helpful to experience devices of this quality at home in your own test
    (I have at home with a very high end high end necklace that has grown over half a lifetime).

    Honestly it is not possible, what makes the question, where do I start?
    Best with the conclusion: WOW ………
    The first audition was with my wife, who has a great understanding of good music and good sound. The first sentence was: “What are these boxes? After the second LP, the second movement was: “Oh God, the sound is beautiful ……”. So the evening ended with a lot of music and a good mood!
    The second day with good friends.
    The boys, both from home with good high end equipment,
    brought a lot of records, a lot of curiosity and a question mark.
    The two power amplifiers were inspected, photographed and illuminated from all sides.
    So far so good, after the first notes … silence, which gave way to an open mouth and then turned into a broad grin!
    We played a variety of styles and styles.
    Rock, pop, jazz, film music and what else was there from 1950 to the present day.
    And always the result was the same, just good, without overdoing it.
    When power was needed, it was there, at gentle tones they were flattering and there,
    in other words “supple”, “honest” and with a pinch of “fine spirit”.
    We in our group were not as emotionally affected by the music as last weekend.
    The amplifiers are not overly warm, hum-free and what is also noticeable (I have not experienced so synonymous with tubes) are ready after 10 minutes and fully there!
    Sound description: Analytical with the heat of a tube, but not “soft-rinsed”, or what is called a typical tube sound, as I know it from my own.
    And the question mark I mentioned at the beginning is the hair in the soup we were looking for?
    There is no one, as much as we searched ………
    The display in the game mode would fit in a beautiful red even more harmonious to the power amplifiers ….
    I am not a magazine editor and I have deliberately not read a test to avoid any influence. That’s why this is just honest and the guys and me
    say: “WOW …… ..”

    my setup:
    B&W 802 Diamond
    Acoustic Solid/Solid One
    SME 3009 mit Ortofon Quintet Black
    NEAT GA 18 mit Ortofon MC 25 E -Shibata Umbau
    Vorstufe Musica Nova Pegasus
    VV. – Trigon Advance und Vanguard II mit Vulkano II
    CD. Musical Fidelity PAN /Tascam PRO/Sony PS 1
    Cary SLM 100 / 572 SE
    und natürlich Audio Valve Baldur 300
    Die ich nur ungerne wieder abgebe für erste ……….
    Für weitere Testrunden stehe ich gerne zur Verfügung!
    Viele Grüße,

    Customer feedback:
    “…in the meantime we tested the Baldur 300 Mono Blocks at the 8 Ohm connection instead of the 4 Ohm – with the Triangle Grand Concert and we’re very enthusiastic. Now the sound is much more precise and everything is just like we wanted, as positively described below. The Baldurs are thus, electronically speaking, the best amps for driving these loudspeakers that we’ve heard – from about 10 power amplifiers. My wife, who listens more analytically than I do, sends you greetings, and says that you have almost built the “swiss-army-knife” of amplifiers. She’s very impressed by your abilities. In this spirit, we would like to thank you very much, you’ve helped us a great deal and have made us very happy!”

    Hallo Herr Becker,
    Nach vielen Stationen ( ML-PASS-GRUENSCH-VALVET- STRADA MONOS –PATHOS- BALDUR 70) scheinen die 300 Baldur meine Erfüllung zu sein.
    In der Konfiguration : Horns Mummy-Wadia 381i-Cardas Reference LS-NF-Stein Music Stromvesorgung-Baldur 300 begeistern sie mich und andere Zuhörer immer wieder.
    Auch möchte ich mich hier, für den immer wieder netten Kontakt , bedanken.
    Mit freundlichen Grüßen

    Wir haben Ihre Balduren 300 ausgiebig an unserer Triangle Grand Concert mit einem Ayon CD3s (mit eingebauter Vorstufe) getestet und mit unseren bestehenden Cayin 9088 (2×845/Block) sowie den NAT Transmittern verglichen.

    Hier die tabellarische, subjektive Zusammenfassung:
    + optisch sehr schönes Gerät (lediglich die blauen LED-Plexiglasscheiben fanden wir nicht ganz so schön, da dieses grelle Blau nicht zum warmen Klang passt)
    + relativ leicht (38kg; 55kg lt. Spezifikation im Manual)
    + passt elektrisch perfekt zu unserer sehr schwierigen Grand Concert (Impedanzminimum von 1.8Ohm)
    + breite Bühne
    + enorme Kraft
    + keine Hochtonschärfe
    + sehr kontrollierter und kräftiger Bass
    + sehr dynamisch

    Mittlerweile testeten wir die Baldur 300 Monos am 8 Ohm Anschluss – anstelle der 4 Ohm – mit der Triangle Grand Concert und sind hellauf begeistert, jetzt ist der Klang viel präziser und alles war wie gewünscht und wie unten bereits positiv beschrieben. Die Balduren sind also elektrisch der beste Antrieb, den wir bisher an dem LS gehört haben und das waren ca. 10 Endstufen.
    Meine Frau, die ja analytischer hört als ich, lässt Sie schön grüssen, und meinte dass Sie die beinahe eierlegende Wollmilchsau eines Verstärkers gebaut hätten und Sie ist von Ihrem Können schwer beeindruckt.

    In diesem Sinne bedanken wir uns sehr herzlich, Sie haben uns sehr geholfen und uns eine grosse Freude bereitet!
    Beste Güsse aus den Bergen

    Fritz und Monika Struber
