Pathos Kratos Tube Hybrid Integrated Amplifier
A class-A Tung-Sol ECC803 input stage meets a 200 Wpc MOSFET output stage
In Greek mythology, Kratos is the god of strength, might, and power. The Pathos Kratos is based on Pathos’ famous hybrid circuit featuring tubes in the preamp stage, and a MOSFET final stage, offering 200 W per channel.
The design electrically separates the pre and power stages, with the preamplification circuit working in in pure class-A. The Tung-Sol ECC803S tubes offer a warm, deep, dynamic sound. The final MOSFET stage in class AB is strongly polarized in class A, and drives any loudspeaker with power and grace.
Kratos is also headphone amplifier with dedicated circuitry (2 W @ 32 Ω).
Kratos’ can be upgraded with an optional DAC, and an optional phonostage.
