Power amps



Adrenalin for the ear: SPIKE

The SPIKE represents the very pinnacle of our advanced technology.

A professional German hifi reviewer explained, what's sharp about our SPIKE:

„This amplifier makes the listener sweat, suffer, celebrate, dance and cry out loud.

….such a pure and unaltered experience of musical directness has not been reached by any other amplifier. What happened here blew away even the normal benchmarks of hi-fi.
... it could be described as the direct conversion of electricity to adrenalin.“
STEREO / Holger Barske

More live! In order to realise this objective for the SPIKE Power amps, we decided to leave the conventional design path, opting for uncompromising circuitry with the fastest possible reaction time and power supply efficiency. Four layer circuit technology to attain a higher switching component density. Ultra-short power connections and signal paths.

To redefine the complete behaviour of the circuit in terms of reaction speed, impulse and power delivery, the copper conductors are up to four times thicker than usual. Two high quality 250 VA transformers judiciously supply the output stages with enough energy. Current and voltage regulation are covered by integrated amplifier chips, two small fans keep things cool during the loud parts! SPIKE power amps are readied to include the easy integration of BI-BUTT and X-OVER modules.

SPIKE STEREO. Don't let the moderately rated, output power mislead you. The Spike has the ability to redefine timing and immediacy of dynamics. Musical aspects of the sound blend into the background, as the intensity of the musical performance reaches the listener on another level.

SPIKE MONO. The mono version is derived directly from SPIKE STEREO. More energy is available, particularly to power impulses. That means total control, ample dynamic resources and precision signal processing.

On the input stage, you can choose between a variety of connectors: XLR for symmetrical connections, unsymmetrical over RCA and DIN. A switch allows the choice between the balanced and unbalanced signal paths.

The speakers are connected via high grade banana sockets. This kind of plug offers the most contact area for the best possible energy transfer. The power amps are equipped with gold-plated WBT connectors as standard.

PHONOSOPHIE uses cases made of carefully treated aluminium (4 mm thick) with finest grade of surface polishing. In contrast to the heavy armour wrapped around common high end audio components, it will not suffer from vibration energy trapped between thick metal sheets.
Instead, this kind of lean construction offers more control when dealing with vibrations as they are eliminated from the cabinet in the shortest time possible. To reduce vibration effects even further, you can use our racksystem, which is complimentary to the cabinets design and supports them perfectly for optimum sound reproduction.
