FEATURES Chakra Amplifier Technology The Chakra amplifier design uses an array of large transistors as ‘boosters’ around a single chip integrated circuit. When output current is less than a few amps all the power output comes from the single chip circuitry, maximising the speed and linear properties of this design. At higher output currents the transistors provide the majority of the output current, leaving the integrated circuit to operate well within its capability and able to correct any error instantaneously. The design is very compact, reducing the circuit area and length of the signal path and is also highly efficient, producing much less heat than traditional designs. Aktiv* Operation Standard ‘passive’ crossovers are driven by the audio signal itself and so some of the signal is effectively lost. Aktiv crossovers are powered by the SMPS (see left) and therefore much more of the audio signal is delivered to the loudspeaker. They are also able to exert a much greater degree of control over the signal and these qualities combine to provide a significant improvement in sonic performance over standard operation. Switch Mode Power Supply (SMPS) SMPS is an electronic power supply which converts and regulates the incoming mains voltage, and also provides the internal audio circuitry with excellent electrical isolation from the outside world. The SMPS replaces the bulky, heavy and noisy transformer found in most amplifiers, as well as a number of other 2 sizeable components. The major benefits of SMPS over conventional power supplies include: small size, high efficiency, fast response, high mains input tolerance and, with its much reduced material use, environmental friendliness. Also, SMPS does not emit distortion into the local mains supply, as conventional large power supplies tend to do. And if you upgrade from an amplifier with a conventional power supply to the Majik-I amplifier, aside from the benefits of the improved amplification, the sound of your entire system will almost certainly improve as a result of the cleaner mains supply. Protection / Over-Current Protection If the output current goes above the power amplifier’s designated safe operating level, it shuts down instantly for a few seconds in order to protect itself and the loudspeaker drive units to which it is connected. Over-Temperature Protection Similarly, if the amplifier’s temperature rises above its safe operating limit, the amplifier will cease operation until the temperature drops to a safe level and will then automatically resume.
