The circuitry technology concepts developed by MBL, such as the "DPP" (Direct Push Pull) and "IGC" (Isolated Gain Cell), are combined here with a unique new circuit board design with ultra-short signal paths. In addition, special low-induction MBL components in the passive environment make it possible to exploit the full bandwidth of this amplifier.
Multi-layer PCB with heavy CU planes in the output section
Gold plated copper planes
Layout in "ground-plane" and "eye-of-an-needle" techniques
Low-induction MPC resistors and MHz-type RSH capacitors
Super-fast ring-emitter transistors in X-crossed array
Regulated power supply for the Class-A drive electronics
Custom MBL -built binding posts made of pure copper
No output relays
198.000 uF custom built "long life" power capacitor bank
Pure copper internal wiring 6NCU
DC servo coupling
Flat frequency response to beyond 350 kHz
Outstanding mechanical structure, in a compact housing
...and a few secrets that we would rather keep to ourselves.
This fully balanced differential amplifier employs 2 custom built toroidal transformers for the power stage and 1 custom-built, fully-shielded transformer for the driver stage. All mbl transformers are mounted on a metal shield and encased in epoxy for ultra-effective damping. The output stage and the driver stage employs separate supplies to fully isolate the output stage from the input stage.
As far as the sound is concerned, this is the weapon to protect the beauty of the music from all deleterious influences. This is the amplifier you have always been seeking for.
