The Astoria AST 2 Classic Head is a puristic single-channel amp with some contemporary features such as tube-buffered, serial loop-in, foot-switchable gainboost and push/pull body (bassboost) circuitry. The cathode BIAS power amplifier draws 30 watts from a KT-66 tube Duet, the power can be reduced to 5 watts. The usual gain control is replaced by a sensitivity potentiometer in AST 2 - this is directly used for the feedback of the output stage. The degree of distortion is controlled without changing the sound characteristics. The Edge Controller has a similar function to a traditional Presence Pot, which affects high frequencies in the output stage. An amp for sound gourmets and sound purists who do not want to miss out on modern features.
