The V 70 SE is a line level integrated amplifier delivering 2 x 70 W peak output power. Belonging to the same family of design as the V 40 SE, the V 70 SE performs with more power. His outstanding features are control and dynamics. The V 70 SE plays Rock-and-Roll like Rock-and- Roll and celebrates Classical music with delicate grace and solid expanse. Listening to music becomes an absolute pleasure.

Like the V 40 SE, the V 70 SE benefits from the experience OCTAVE gained developing his predecessors. Numerous improvements over the previous V 70 model form the new V 70 SE. Embedded in the larger, optimized chassis construction of the V 80, the V 70 SE now offers higher performance while the sensitive electronic circuits are better shielded against the magnetic stray field of the transformer and the mains. The mains transformer itself is a special low-noise type encapsulated in a magnetic closed box.
The Output Stage consists of two power Tetrodes (Type 6550 C) per each channel. Due to the BIAS Control and Monitoring System, the use of other pin-compatible output tubes is possible to match the amplifier to personal taste, or to benefit from new or improved tubes.
The V 70 SE, as all OCTAVE Amps, is based on the enhanced pentode configuration. This configuration ensures the absolute stability of the amplifier against the unstable impedance of the speaker. Impedance mismatch is without consequence, as the amplifier is stable down to a 2 Ohm load. An important contribution to this stability is the Single Impedance Output Transformer.
A forward looking feature of OCTAVE is the unique Ecomode power saving electronic circuitry developed to reduce heat and unnecessary power consumption when the amplifier is switched on but not in use. This electronic system controls the power condition and reduces power consumption when the amplifier does not receive a signal for a period exceeding 10 minutes. In this "sleep" mode, the V 70SE draws only idle current. Virtually no heat is produced by the unit, and the heater voltage and the high voltage for the power amplifier section are switched off. When a signal is detected by the V 70SE, the Ecomode circuit will turn the amplifier back on, with a warm-up/start-up delay of approximately 30 seconds before the unit will operate. Ecomode also serves to increase the lifetime of the tubes, while having an added benefit of improved safety allowing the V 70SE owner a level of security against any problems when leaving the unit powered on.
