TIDAL IMPULSE MONOBLOC

 

We have pushed the concept of the Impulse stereo power amplifier to its extreme and developed an all new 1.600 VA power supply. Thus, the mono amplifier board is certain for all practical means and purposes to be supplied with never failing power reserves and a lavish feed of clean current that will drive every imaginable speaker with ease.

The generous supply of additional power is merely a welcome byproduct, really. The real goal was the absolute relaxation with which the Impulse Monobloc performs, to the extent where any attempted description of sound attributes becomes meaningless. The Monobloc is quite simply benchmark with regard to amplification in this size.

Here we will show the essential and unique details of the TIDAL Impulse Monobloc in words and pictures, please have a little bit patience: coming soon.

SPECIFICATIONS

 

  • true mono reference power amplifier with linear power supply

  • regulated active power supply with 2 x 800VA non-noise toriod transformers, completetly magnetical shielded and mechanical decoupled

  • linear voltage power supply for ripple-free voltage and current stabilization for the two amplifier modules

  • 410.000 µF stabilisation capacity, ultra fast response with high-grade-long-life-capacitors

  • elimination of deleterious resonances by all massive aluminum parts and braces inside, excellent torsional and longitudinal rigidity

  • in-house made multilayer PCB (printed circuit board) with 105 µm copper per layer

  • hand selected transistors, measured and matched with a precision better than 1%

  • DC-coupled input circuit, without coupling capacitors or relay in the signal path from the input to the output

  • no relay in the signal way from XLR input to speaker output

  • ultralow impedance capacitors directly at the transistors for most shortest connection

  • TIDAL proprietary APM system (amplifier protection management) is completely outside of the signal path

  • TIDAL APM System is an isolated and completely autarkic system to manage and control the power amps safety: output current in relation to output-voltage, short circuit current, DC- offset, under-voltage und excess voltage

  • optional: fully autarcic working active crossover LPX-monomodule for active amping to control the bass section of TIDAL reference speakers, perfectly matched in phase and frequency, different frequencies and level adjustable to trim bass response perfectly to each room and/or taste

  • intelligent softstart system, remote power on/off by TIDAL pre amplifiers via RJ45 ethernet cable


  • rated power output at 8 ohm: 2 x 280 watts continuous rms power

  • rated power output at 4 ohm: 2 x 520 watts continuous rms power

  • rated power output at 2 ohm: 2 x > 700 watts continuous rms power

  • bandwith: 1Hz - 400 kHz (-3 dB), measured with impedance load

  • dimensions: 17.3" x 10" x 17,3" / 44 cm x 25 cm x 40 cm

  • power consumption: < 1 W in stand-by mode

  • amplification bandwidth: wider than the highest resolution sources

  • damping factor: ideal damping factor for life like music reproduction, perfectly even over the whole spectrum
