Info from Maker Audio: Maker Audio introduces a new line of amplifiers based on technology from the EDGE amplifier line pioneered beginning in the 1980s. They have taken everything learned while building EDGE products and also added some new twists to bring you the latest amplifiers from Maker Audio. The new models have been substantially improved over the old EDGE "G" and "NL" model lineup. The new line sport's a new look using a laser-cut stainless steel chassis and be branded under the Maker Audio Product line so that you know you are getting the newest product with the backing and support of Maker Audio and founder Tom Maker.
They have updated the older designs and are incorporating new technologies that have been worked on recently. Some of these include more efficient transformers- 5% better transformer efficiency and 20% better transformer shielding. Also designing a new filtering power supply based on the original EDGE ACF power conditioners. It is built right into the amplifier and removes any noise and unwanted DC components from the AC line, eliminating the need for external line filters or AC conditioners.
The new line also achieves 20% higher output power than the previous line. Also new to the designs is the stainless steel chassis. The chassis is laser cut to ensure high precision and consistent fit and finish and of course they look amazing.
