With a power amplification of 2 x 285 W (4 Ω) [2 x 185 W (8 Ω)] or 1 x 450 W (8 Ω, Bridge Mode), this amplifier easily controls any loudspeaker. Thanks to VOLTAiR technology, it is fast, precise and highly efficient with outstanding sound.
Better safe than sorry
The Performer s800 has a protection circuit against DC voltage and against overheating. If direct current (DC) is detected, the output stage switches off automatically and the Protect LED lights up red.
To protect the s800 against the unlikely event of overheating, a temperature sensor at the heatsinks continously monitors the temperature of the device. The TEMP LED lights up yellow when the Performer s800 is getting too hot.
As a result of this the output stage is switched off and the fans run on high-speed until the device has cooled down.
“Dynamically, the Performer s800 hangs excellently on the gas, shows itself to be very confident and tidy, and maintains its clean, unstrained midrange/treble reproduction even at higher levels. The razor-sharp focus in terms of spatial imaging is also impressive.” - Holger Biermann (LowBeats)
Trim to fit
With reference to the Performer s800, “fit” means adapted.
You can adapt the input sensitivity in 0.5 dB steps from 0 dB to -5.5 dB. In contrast to a panorama potentiometer in a preamplifier, this trim switch is the more audiophile solution.
In addition, the difference in loudness of loudspeakers can be elegantly compensated in bi-amping mode.
The VOLTAiR Technology
The 120V technology is our reference technology. The 120V technology is unique in the world. It operates at a DC voltage of 120 volts. This is four times that of IC-based semiconductor op-amps. In our Professional Fidelity series, we refer to this unsurpassed technology as VOLTAiR technology.
