MEGAschino MK2 Amplifier
MEGAschino MK2 Amplifier
How MEGAschino is different:
* DC coupling end-to-end
* response down to 0Hz and NO BASS PHASE SHIFT
* Low output impedance across the entire audio band
* We measure output impedance (or damping factor) at 100Hz, 1kHz, and 10kHz
* Optimized for SONICS above all else
* We start with amazing bench specs, like 128+dB SNR and 0.0008% THD+N, then we tweak for sound AFTER that
* Black background, micro-dynamics, uncolored
* 120dB SNR, 0.001% THD+N
* High power
* MEGAschino channel boards are capable of comfortably driving 1000W into 4Ω and up to 2000W into 2Ω
* Extended bandwidth
* Up to 150kHz
* Patented and proprietary circuitry designed in-house
* We are one of the few amp manufacturers that still designs circuits as opposed to dropping yet another pre-fab module into a fancy box!
* 30-years of Class-D amplifier design so far
The MEGAschino MK2 is an ultra-high performance, sonically optimized audio amplifier capable of driving huge current very accurately over a wide frequency range. This amplifier is based on our new power technology that is capable of nearly 130dB SNR, but optimized for sound quality, lowering SNR to a respectable 120dB.
We don't use pre-fab modules in our amplifiers. Our innovative, proprietary circuits are built specifically for our products. Our technology doesn't require gobs of negative feedback as used in mass-market amplifiers. We also don't require complex compensation networks allowing much less output filtering for flat, extended response into difficult, reactive loads (speakers). Our extended response also allows better control at high frequencies.
We design our hardware FROM SCRATCH (down to the smallest component) to fit the product, and we design the entire product around our own circuits. Therefore, we don't need to make sonic sacrifices in order to fill as many "sockets" as possible. This allows us to reach new levels of performance on the bench, but more importantly, into your ears.
The MEGAschino amplifier is like (sonic wise) the well-regarded Maraschino amplifier with even more extended bandwidth and massive added headroom. The result is an elegant and luxurious sounding amplifier capable of driving just about any speaker on the planet with grace and authority.
The MEGAschino comes in Stereo or MONO versions, with red or black faceplates, and 750W or 1500W transformers.
