Class A refers to a high performance style of circuitry used in vacuum tube audio devices to extract maximum efficiency from power tubes. A constant high voltage signal is sent through the power stage without the forced negative feedback (or "cool down cycle") inherent in the Class A/B design. Matchless amplifiers rely on superior design, construction and components to manage the power of true Class A operation. Matchless Class A amplifiers provide an "alive" response, true tone, rich harmonics and smooth transition into distortion.
If you are looking for circuit boards in a Matchless amplifier, you won't find them. Matchless amplifiers are point-to-point wired, using military-spec components and hand wound transformers, without circuit boards of any kind. While these construction methods are more difficult and expensive than others, they are necessary to achieve the incomparable sound quality, reliability and ruggedness of a MATCHLESS.
