Sold in pairs, each MAHI dishes up 20 Watts when in TRIODE mode and 40 Watts when set to Ultra-Linear. MAHI’s power is delivered from a 4-way configuration of EL84 (or 6BQ5) tubes driven by a 6414 dual triode driver in concert with a 12AT7EH input dual triode. EL84 is a highly revered tube for Manley Labs over many years, favoured not only for its long life and consistent performance; but also its delightful quickness both in the top and bottom end.
By harnessing a large B+ rail storage, MAHI yields up to 115 joules of energy for better control, better impact and better bass punch from its transformers - each custom engineered and wound at Manley Labs US manufacturing facility. To offer a more customised performance, a variable feedback switch is also available for users to tune the sonic palette from intimately seductive to all-out rock and roll.
As fans of the Manley brand will recognise, MAHI takes a number of design cues from the 2002 SNAPPER amplifier model. While both models share aesthetics in their chassis design, both also feature the hugely popular TRIODE-UL switch for triode ultra-linear mode switching as well as top-shelf German-made WBT binding posts.
Despite its size and affordable price, MAHI delivers a remarkable level of power as a formidable cornerstone to any appropriate system.
