Audio Exklusiv P1 Hybrid Power Amplifier
The P1 is a stereo hybrid power amplifier. Each channel uses one E88CC and one 6N6 for the amplifier / driver section as well as special power transistors for the output.
The valves (tubes) are carefully selected in order to obtain the best possible channel balance, noise and distortion values. Should you experiment with other tubes please note that, (due to the missing selection), the sound characteristics can be modified.
The P1 is built completely dual mono but around a single 500W transformer . For the circuit we chose a three-step hybrid concept. Valves are excellent for voltage amplification, transistors for the current. The combination of valves and transistors makes it possible to exploit the technical and audible advantages without having to take their disadvantages. For tonal reasons we abstained from overall negative feedback as well as from negative feedback in the transistor section, which leads, in our mind, to a particularly good sound.
The power supply is built up with an RC-filter. So, in combination with a high quality line filter, most of the line noise can be eliminated – the audio circuit works under the best possible conditions.
The components used have been determined separately and in cooperation with long listening tests. Non-inductive resistors with only lowest tolerances, MKP, mica and oiled paper capacitors and high quality internal wiring are only a few examples of the final selection of parts.
As we use them for all other Audio Exklusiv products even here the special patented measures for resonance elimination have been applied. Specially applied they considerably reduce artificial artifacts and clearly improve the demonstration of finest detail resolution and room information
Thanks to all measures we reach a best possible stability and an ideal channel separation. The result is an extremely wide-ranging, airy, excellent structured, but nevertheless emotional sound pattern, which is, above all, signed by a best possible finest drawing as well as by authority and solidity.
