This completely new all analog amplifier easily controls any loudspeaker.
Thanks to the VOLTAiR technology the performance of the s1200 is detail-rich, vivid, honest and plain simply beautiful.
The Performer s1200 has a protection circuit against DC voltage and against overheating. If direct current (DC) is detected, the output stage switches off automatically and the Protect LED lights up red.
To protect the s1200 against the unlikely event of overheating, a temperature sensor at the heatsinks continously monitors the temperature of the device. The TEMP LED lights up yellow when the Performer s1200 is getting too hot.
As a result of this the output stage is switched off and the fans run on high-speed until the device has cooled down.
In addition to the choice of the basic color black, red or silver, there are three more options for each to customize the Performer s1200 to individual design preferences with the black, red and silver decorative panels included in the scope of delivery.
The decorative panels adhere with the help of a strong neodymium magnet. No tools are required to exchange them.
Conventional solid-state power amplifiers tend to operate in a critical range of the built-in components – this results in unpleasant harmonical artifacts. Tube power amplifiers also distort at their limit but their characteristical behaviour softens this roughness and harshness.
Non the less this is a falsified representation of the sound image. Thanks to VOLTAiR Technology, the Performer s1200 can process much higher levels without even coming near to a critical range. All components constantly operate in the optimal range. The result is a very pleasant, natural and relaxed sound experience. Enjoy your music in every detail and without any listening fatigue.
