ASR AUDIO SYSTEME - EMITTER I EXCLUSIVE W/BATTERY (akku) PSU's
Latest 2012 Model (Version Blue) with Gold Boards, more Capacitance & Optional Extra's (Mint condition)!
This Emitter can also be sold without the battery power supply (akku) - simply deduct $2,820 from asking price.
The legendary Emitters (in production since 1980), and Basis Exclusive phonostage have won multiple awards, internationally, as well as in the USA.
ASR main-amplifiers (with input selector & volume control) and phonostage designs are amongst the very finest, providing reliable & trouble free operation for years to come.
Many optional features can allow the end user to have a customized Emitter built especially according to their needs. Emitters can also be used in bridged mode or in vertical bi-amping.
These products have remained in production since 1980. ASR’s design team has obsessed over the use of each individual part and upgrade to the same circuit design for 30+ years!
There are no third party consultants or vendors involved in the design or production phase, as the design is intimately known by the in-house design team for over 30 years!
No Chinese parts and no Chinese production; everything is hand-built in Germany!
The emotional sound of Tubes with the Power and Precision of Transistors!
Emitter I Exclusive technical attributes:
- Two channel amplifier in the acrylic casing with input selector and volume control.
- 2 x 160 wpc into 8 ohms | 2 x 290 wpc into 4 ohms | 2 x 520 wpc into 2 ohms.
- 1,034,440µF capacity (total including the akku battery power supply) for this 2012 model! (Older production models didn't have such large capacitance - which directly affects the dynamics)!
- Class A/B technology with 12 Toshiba special Audio-MOSFETS with high impulse capacity.
- Mounting bars of the output Transistors made from massive brass for low resonance.
- Volume control with relay attenuator in 1dB-Steps with balance and input level adjustment.
- 25 mm LED-Display available in yellow or blue as operational indicator, adjustable in many ways.
- 5 high-level (RCA) inputs switched with relay, plus 1 direct input (without relay), plus 1 record output.
- Balanced input (XLR) input for CD with switchable input impedance.
- (Optional) new knobs with encoders with the latest pcb board (offered for the first time starting with the new Jan 2012 production models)
- (Optional) Sub-out for active sub-woofers or Pre-out for other amplifiers (included).
- Gold plated massive brass RCA-sockets with Teflon isolation. Massive silver wires for all signals.
- (Optional) WBT Silver connectors on 3 inputs and speaker binding posts are also included.
