Built using the same design principles as the s30, the s80 integrated amplifier substitutes a highly efficient UcD modulator for the output stage. Conservatively rated at 80 Watts per channel, this amplifier will happily drive any speaker.
The UcD modulator overcomes all the shortcomings of previous class-D designs, thanks to a patented circuit that uses feedback after the output filter, directly at the speaker terminals. This removes the filter from the closed-loop response and eliminates speaker dependence that is all too common in class-D amplifiers. The s80 will drive complex loads without changing character, and is just warm to the touch at any power level.
The s80 is a dual-mono design and includes two large toroidal transformers that are installed in the outboard power centre.
The complete system uses a single power cord and does not require interconnects. Just connect the speakers, forget about the equipment, and enjoy the music!
