9008A er lillebroren til MBLs verdenskjente forsterkerflaggskip 9011 og er et imponerende skue. Når dette er sagt så blir det litt feil å omtale denne forsterkeren som en ”liten” utgave av noe som helst. Med sin imponerende vekt på drøye 60kg og enorme kraftreserver er dette et produkt som vil ha stålkontroll over selv den mest krevende høyttalerkonstruksjon, uansett lydtrykk, og som med letthet vil gi deg all den ytelsen du kan ønske.
Alle målbare kriterier er selvfølgelig i spitzenklasse, men det er de ikke definerbare kvalitetene som vil sette det dypeste sporet hos lytteren. Lydgjengivelsen er rett og slett fantastisk og må oppleves.
Informasjon fra produsent:
This true analog power amplifier is built only with discrete components of highest quality. Neither integrated circuits, nor microprocessors are involved in this design. Our engineers have created a true balanced design.
In mono operation 2 full range high quality power amplifiers (in- and off- phase) driving the speaker without any ground connection. On the rear panel you will find a balanced connector with gold plated pins to connect the amplifier section direct with the input signal.
Though, there is a possibility to drive this amp in Stereo too, for this operation you will find RCA connectors for unbalanced Stereo operation. The Stereo input signal is connected by using drilled pure 6N copper wire direct to the input of the electronic board. There is no relays to switch between Mono/Stereo operation to avoid any influence by contact distortions. This power amp is offering incredible flexibility, but mainly sheer power for passionate music lovers. Using this High End power amp in a home theater setup you get a sound quality level you never believe that this can be happened. In short, the mbl 9008 A is a technical masterpiece manufactured in the service of music.
The circuitry technology concepts developed by MBL, such as the "DPP" (Direct Push Pull) and "IGC" (Isolated Gain Cell), are combined here with a unique new circuit board design with ultra-short signal paths. In addition, special low-induction components in the passive environment make it possible to exploit the full bandwidth of this amplifier.
- Special technical features:
- Multi-layer PCB with heavy CU planes in the output section
- Gold plated copper planes
- Layout in "ground-plane" and "eye-of-an-needle" techniques
- Low-induction MPC resistors and MHz-type RSH capacitors
- Super-fast ring-emitter transistors in X-crossed array
- Regulated power supply for the Class-A drive electronics
- Custom MBL-built binding posts made of pure copper
- No output relays
- 198.000 uF custom built "long life" power capacitor bank
- Pure copper internal wiring 6NCU
- DC servo coupling
- Flat frequency response to beyond 350 kHz
- Outstanding mechanical structure, in a compact housing
...and a few secrets that we would rather keep to ourselves.
This fully balanced differential amplifier employs 2 custom built toroidal transformers for the power stage and 1 custom-built, fully-shielded transformer for the driver stage. All transformers are mounted on a metal shield and encased in epoxy for ultra-effective damping. The output stage and the driver stage employs separate supplies to fully isolate the output stage from the input stage.
As far as the sound is concerned, this is the weapon to protect the beauty of the music from all deleterious influences. This is the amplifier you have always been seeking for.
Just open your ears and listen.
