  • Sold/priced in pairs
  • 1x 12AX7 input tube
  • 1x 7044 driver tube
  • 4x Tungsol EL34B output tubes
  • Custom Manley output transformer
  • Fully balanced circuit topology
  • XLR/RCA inputs

Thanks to the fully differential design, SNAPPER can can be driven either via its balanced XLR inputs or unbalanced RCAs with equally impressive results and without sacrificing any performance or detail along the way. SNAPPER’s XLR inputs may be particularly desirable for users with balanced preamps, since taking full advantage of the preamp’s balanced outputs requires no balancing input circuitry or input transformers.

Strong and Natural Sound
Manley SNAPPER's EL34 tubes

At the heart of each SNAPPER power amplifier is a quartet of pristine EL34 tubes, running in a fully differential circuit topology alongside a Manley Labs hand-wound output transformer boasting no fewer than 19 sections.
