The V 40 SE is an evolution of the acclaimed V 40 and V 50 amplifier models, designed to handle the demands of high-fidelity audio enthusiasts. With a peak output power of 2 x 40 Watts and a robust design, this amplifier delivers powerful bass and exceptional clarity in high frequencies. It is available in two color options, silver or black, allowing it to blend seamlessly into any décor.

One of the standout features of the V 40 SE is its implementation of a BIAS Control and Monitoring System, which supports the use of various pin-compatible output tubes. This flexibility allows audiophiles to fine-tune the amplifier’s sound profile according to their personal taste or to experiment with new and improved tube types. The core of the V 40 SE’s design utilizes an enhanced pentode configuration that guarantees stability across different speaker impedances, maintaining consistent performance even with speakers that present a low impedance load down to 2 ohms.

Notably, the V 40 SE has been awarded the "Stereoplay Highlight" in July 2009 by the German high-end audio magazine Stereoplay, underscoring its excellence in audio performance and design innovation. It includes advanced features such as a Signal-to-Noise ratio of -110dB at full power, making it an excellent match for both average and high-efficiency speakers. Additionally, the amplifier’s Power Management system incorporates Soft-Start-Electronic to prolong device life, alongside Eco Mode for energy efficiency and a comprehensive Protection System to safeguard the device and output tubes.

Practical functionalities are not missed in the V 40 SE, which features five RCA inputs, including one designated for home theatre bypass. It also offers a variety of outputs: an RCA record output, a regulated preamplifier output, and a loudspeaker output. The dimensions of the unit are 408 x 159 x 490 mm (W x H x D), and it weighs 18.0 kg, embodying a robust yet manageable design. With its extensive array of features and settings, such as full metal remote control, adjustable Pre-Out, HT Bypass, and more, the V 40 SE is tailored to meet the refined needs of dedicated audio enthusiasts, ensuring superior sound quality and user convenience.
