Available is a MINT condition DSi200 integrated amp with all accessories, packing and boxes.
The look of the DSi200 is pure Audio Research—from its classic squared line, to the heavy front panel and chunky grab handles. Large volume and input selectors flank a vacuum-fluorescent display whose brightness has six levels of adjustment. Beneath the display are four aluminum buttons for power on/off, mono/stereo, inverting phase, and muting output. These same functions, as well as a balance control and display adjustments, are also provided by a full-function remote control. The back panel sports three single-ended inputs and a pair of balanced inputs—their mirror-like, symmetrical layout exposing the dual-mono design of the amp’s circuit.
The aforementioned secret is the DSi200’s solid-state-hybrid design. It combines a hefty regulated analog linear power supply with a discrete MOSFET-based high-speed switching output stage of ARC’s own invention. While this implementation is not unique, ARC points out that, unlike virtually all other switching amplifiers, the DSi200 does not rely on any OEM modules or pre-manufactured components. The resulting amplifier outputs 200Wpc continuous into 8 ohms (300W into 4 ohms) with very high efficiency energy conversion—over 90%. Typical of this class of amp, the DSi200 runs very cool and because it draws only a scintilla of power at idle it garnered an “Energy Star” rating.
