The brand new DVA M225 monoblock power amplifier is a stunningly musical high-fidelity amplifier that is designed to accurately preserve all of the energy of a live listening experience.
The DVA M225 is a compact and powerful solid state amplifier. It is rated at 225 watts into 8 ohms, and over 300 watts into 4 ohms. It is comfortably paired with any speaker, including speakers demanding a LOT of power.
Introductory price is $1699 each when purchased as a pair.
The DVA M225's pure differential design let us create an amplifier that presents a life size image with stunning depth, dynamic range, definition, and transparency. There is an amazing faithfulness to the music, combined with accuracy that makes listing to music a pure enjoyment. The sound stage is life size and so pure that you hear much more of the music in a way that will startle and please you.
The DVA M225 includes an XLR input, parallel 5-way gold plated speaker jacks, and external speaker fuses. The DVA M225 is designed to be used with a source providing XLR outputs, like our stunning DVA Digital Preamp. For use with RCA sources, a separate active or transformer RCA to XLR converter will be required. Contact us for details.
The DVA M225 uses a new and unique version of our award-winning SET amplifier design. These are Class A/B amps that operate as Class A amps at normal listening levels. The SET name stands for their unique Single Ended Transistor voltage amplifier design. This is our newest design with a simple but amazingly effective bipolar transistor front end followed by a very fast and rugged power MOS-FET current amplifier section. The frequency response is within 3 dB from under 10 Hz to over 100kHz. Our SET amplifiers are uniquely DC stable. This means they will not generate speaker damaging DC drift even when driven past clipping.
The combination of our design ideas allows the amplifiers to run cooler, last longer, and be amazingly fault tolerant. The DVA M225 has four double-die MOS-FET output transistors. There is plenty of power for any rational loudspeaker.
Power Supply and Layout
All of our SET power amplifiers, including the new DVA M225, have regulated power supplies for all areas of the amplifier, including the output transistors. The regulated power supplies provide unequaled bass control and micro dynamics. In the DVA M225 there are no unregulated power supplies - anywhere!
The DVA M225 operates with standard 120 Volt power, has an IEC power jack, and includes a polarized 120V power cord. For international use a 240 Volt (50-60 Hz.) option is available at additional cost.
Dimensions 9” wide, 10” deep, 4” high. Shipping weight is 17 pounds.
