Unison Research Unico Nuovo

Brand: Unison Research


The Unico Nuovo, like the Unico Primo and previously the UnicoP, is an integrated amplifier that is based on a 'single triode stage per-channel' design. Where it carves it's own new territory is through using 2 x ECC83 (12AX7) valves with a new biasing solution and a parallel double-triode design. By doubling the number of triodes (compared to the Unico Primo) and employing a parallel configuration, the Unico Nuovo is capable of a more refined sonic performance than those that have come before.

The new biasing solution - based upon a design previously found in high-end phono stages, called "ionic bias" - involves the Unison Research-designed power supply working in tandem with the "level shifter and signal follower" stages that come after the triode stage to deliver an accurate, audiophile sound from this hybrid amplifier. This innovative layout allows for non-manual adjusting of the bias as the valves bed-in and age, to ensure a longer and more reliable performance.


In the driver stages, the output devices are fed by a symmetrical current mirror stage, made with bipolar transistors. This method allows for minimal phase displacement and a more valve-influenced sound delivery. The output devices themselves are Power MOSFETs laid-out symmetrically, and both receive power from the same power supply stage with a special configuration to ensure the required voltage is always delivered. In total, this design allows for greater channel separation and balance, higher efficiency and greater musical detail.
