The power amplifier Ayre MX-R (19800 euro) went instead with the sister prefer a with German prepress of Thorens TEP 3200 a relationship. And an incredibly tingly.
- Amplifier Ayre MX-R
- Data sheet
Single pole RCA-comers can relatively perfect symmetrieren the input differential amp, serious Highender still only symmetrical clamp the KX-R. In the case of Mono blocks MX-R with home also from solid milled is not otherwise, because they make more sense way have only XLR inputs. They lead to a circuit that is quite similar in the preliminary stage. So first to a symmetrical and in the push-pull Feldeffektler Quartet, which weighed on the signal suppliers do not in the least with very high input resistance (to 1 Megaohm).
The Ayre set forms a fully symmetrical chain
When the MX-R, nor drivers happen now over here and over there on a finicky symmetric, magnetic one and deny broadcast track layout that would be also an FM amplifier to shame. And eight power transistors on each side, which is a potent bridge amplifier with two hot outputs. The supply of a mono block runs strong and infectious in own aluminium slots mercury transformers two 1000 watt each. After switching tips poor rectification with soft-recovery diode, take over eight 10_000 micro Farad capacitors the energy storage – nicely spread out over the whole Aramide plates and accompanied by hordes of Abblock film capacitors. With this rabid, multiple high-frequency short circuit to ground Ayre excludes, that a possible interference pulse can find a Springboard to the music signal flow.
The Ayre power amplifier went instead with the sister with the German prepress of Thorens TEP 3200 (stereoplay 5/08) a ratio. And an incredibly tingly. This chain was downright fantastic on the Magico V 2. At the borders to the at all feasible, she offered a up to date still not interrogated during, more severe, already wiegbare bass substance. At the other end of the spectrum, however, created a galactic openness and weightlessness, which was completely full and unique purity shine percussion.
On the impedance-critical compared to the Magico Sonics Allegra, the Ayre forces pushed further upwards. Now it occurred to them compared to the Thorens blocks not just something, but to present a whole lot of easier, Orchestra through transparent. Of the single violin to the atmosphere, here all agreed: who wants to achieve reference level sound, trust the new Ayre force.
