High Voltage, High Current
Control Room Amplifier
Being the first professional amplifiers to shun global feedback, the HV, standard
M500 and stereo S400 are characterized by a rich
"tube-like" sound, a high degree
of natural detail and transparency, and the ability to convey an instrument's
distinct timbre and the acoustic signature of any soundfield. A direct
descendant of the standard M500 audiophile unit,
the new HV high voltage model
shares the same front end, chassis and straight-wire design philosophy, but
offers 2.5 times the output for powering larger primary monitors and subwoofers.
Utilizing 16 of the largest lateral MOSFETs, specially designed low ESR filter
caps and an oversized custom-wound toroidal transformer, the M500HV is a mono
block amplifier capable of supplying massive current reserves and exceptional
bandwidth, speed and accuracy from a two rack space convection cooled package.
