The outcome is a compact...[more]

Dynamic loudspeakers


The amplification uses the highly acclaimed Hitachi Lateral Mosfets 2SK1058 & 2SJ162 complementary power transistors, in a configuration of two pairs per channel. The input section uses a cascode differential stage for the best performance. Both the pre-driver and the driver stages are based on High-Voltage Power Bipolar Transistors used in HF designs. The driver operates in pure class A. The c...[more]

Integrated solid state amplifier


One box is dedicated to the converter, output electronic and digital inputs, the second box contain a separate power supply with 7 transformers. This configuration provide an heavy protection from EMI/RFI radiation from the outside world and reduce the negative influence of mechanical vibration from the transformers. Each digital input use it own DIR for a lower level of jitter. A selectable ups...[more]
