1 pair Teddy Pardo Mono Block Amplifiers for sale Model MB-100
The MB100 is a high-end 100W mono power amplifier designed to
be used in pairs to create a stereo system. Thanks to its relatively
small size several units can be used in a muti-chanel system.
The MB100 drive capabilities are much higher than its size or its 100W power suggests.
Like all our power amplifiers, the soundstage is large and
3-dimentional, instruments breathe, and there is a sense of air and
space between them.
The MB100 provides a realistic and natural sound, capable of driving
with full control and accuracy, the most demanding speakers.
Each channel is powered by four ultra low noise regulators which provide stable current to the power amplifiers.
To illustrate the importance of a power supply in a power amplifier
imagine that you need to precisely move a heavy weight back and forth.
In order to do so you will need something stable to hold as a reference.
Now imagine that your reference moves while you pull or release it,
your task will become very difficult and the movement of the weight
cannot be precise.
The power supply is the amplifier's reference. While no power supply
is perfect, actually they are almost always quite far from that.
The transformer which is the heart of the power supply is made of
copper wire which has its own impedance. Due to that impedance, when
current is drawn from the transformer its output voltage drops, usually
by 3-10% depending on the transformer quality and the current being
drawn. To minimize this effect most manufacturers use large oversized
transformers that have lower impedance, and huge smoothing capacitors
that serve as power reserve. Even with oversized transformers and a
large bank of huge capacitors the ripple on the power rail remains in
the order of several volts! Furthermore, this power is rarely filtered
and contains noise at all audible frequencies, having a detrimental
effect on sound quality.
To overcome this problem, some high end
manufacturers use linear regulators in their power supplies. Linear
regulators which are based on a feedback mechanism indeed reduce the
ripple, but still suffer from a relatively high level of noise and other
deficiencies inherent to way they operate.
The MB100 is based on a different approach. It uses a proprietary
ultra low noise zero feedback regulator, a high power version of the
SuperTeddyReg, which provides clean and stable power supply to the
amplifier. This results in a natural sound with quiet background which
reveals every micro detail of the music, while maintaining a powerful
and controlled bass.
In addition to the sound advantages, using this power supply it is
possible to build reasonably sized amplifiers with a sound quality which
surpasses much larger and heavier amplifiers. A MB100 sounds much
bigger and controlled than many 100-200W amplifiers costing several
times its price, and indeed, the amount of controlled bass that the
MB100 provides is often among the first things that strikes the
The MB100 is built using the best available components: low
noise Tantalum and PPS capacitors, 0.01% precision resistors, and WBT
NextGen sockets and binding posts. All components are mounted on a four
layer immersion gold FR4 PCB with a real star ground topology.
We are selling the pair for $1850.00.
