AVID Reference Stereo Power Amplifier
'Our approach to design is simple: Design the best and then cascade it down. '
'Employing the same stunning casework as the Reference Mono Amplifier, the AVID Reference Stereo Power Amplifier sacrifices very little. Even using the same circuit board and layout we are assured of great reliability even under strenuous applications.'
Whilst this is an unbalanced design the inputs allow for RCA and XLR, so balanced cables can be used from the pre-amplifier. A typical economy is usually made in the power supply, AVID have done exactly the opposite using a 2.3KVA mains transformer. There’s no shortage of power when required and with 272,000uF of storage capacity, even the largest crescendos are no problem. Using the same heatsink capacity as the bigger Mono, the AVID Reference Power Amplifier always remains cool, even under difficult conditions.
In common with the Reference Mono, the AVID Power Amplifier delivery is very wide bandwidth, so low frequencies are faithfully reproduced. Voices have a startling reality and space around them, pulling you into the musical experience. Whilst there’s immense power there is also control and a delicacy that allows the inner detail to be fully revealed.
Naturally all the AVID Reference Power Amplifier metalwork and circuit boards are produced and hand assembled within AVID's own factory based in Huntingdon.
