The 700W Half and Half is where the old technology meets the new technology. The preamp is similar to the other all tube Milkman amplifiers: it is hand wired with high plate voltage. The discrete tube preamp section feeds into a Class D power module which scales up to 700 watts. Its the most transparent and exciting sounding hybrid amplifier on the market.
Unlike other hybrid amplifiers, the tube portion of the Half and Half is designed and built like a vintage tube amplifier. It's not shoehorned into a circuitboard and running at low voltage. Tube amps need to be built a certain way to sound their best, be serviceable, and last into the ages. The Half and Half was designed with all of this in mind.
A DI with XLR output with level control has been added to the rear panel. This allows you to use the amplifier as a standalone tube preamp with EQ. It is safe to run the Half and Half with no speaker attached, or you can use the DI with a speaker attached for a balanced XLR line out.
Like all Milkman amplifiers, the Half and Half is built using the finest possible components.
