The system’s heart or motor, the amplifier, has a special role to play as it carefully “amplifies” the delicate musical signal and controls the loudspeaker, enabling all pieces of musical information to be bundled into a meaningful whole. The C51 provides the strong-hearted foundation of a simpler system by carefully combining the functions of the preamp and amplifier in one elegant chassis. No compromises here, discrete components fill the input section, our trail-blazing LASA technology provides a powerful and efficient amplifier…MBL to its core. For optimum channel separation and a distinct, true-to-life musical image, we have crafted the input stages from carefully selected discrete components. Full listening pleasure in half the space.
