The short, simple, minimalist signal path of the Manley Jumbo Shrimp delivers high dynamic range with prodigious output drive capability. Its focus is on high bandwidth, low noise, modest local negative feedback and low distortion, and is voiced for a clean musical performance. The White Follower stage using 5670 dual triodes effortlessly drives the passive interstage volume control. Quick, alive, transparent with good rhythm and extension.
The ALPS motorized volume control offers accurate tracking within 0.5 dB with a smooth, no-detent operation. Balance is provided too, via an ALPS control.
The radio-frequency Remora remote control is included.
