The V40's high efficiency toroidal transformers enable the amplifier to offer a better heat dissipation with low leakage. This results in a drastically low level of unwanted, parasitic distortion. The amplifier makes use of two different audio processing valves, as well as a volume indicator valves. For those who require an extra level of oomf, the V40 also comes equipped with a subwoofer output.
