You told us that you want an outstanding and engaging power amplifier that does not take much space, that is bullet proof, that is maintenance free, and is low cost.
The new Vision SET 120 power amplifier is a uniquely musical high-fidelity amplifier that is designed to accurately preserve all of the energy of a live listening experience.
The SET 120 is the lowest price ultra high resolution power amplifier we have ever offered.
The SET 120 shares the same design as the Vision SET 400 but in a space saving chassis designed for today's smaller, high quality speakers. It is rated at 60 watts per channel into 8 ohms and much more into 4 ohms.
You don’t lose any of the magical and open sound of the bigger Vision SET amplifier. The sound stage is there, the dynamics are there, and the purity is there. The only thing missing is a few watts, the big chassis, and the higher price.
Our new SET amplifiers are Class A/B, and are biased as Class A 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 mosfet current amplifier section. Bandwidth is flat from 3Hz to 70KHz.
Our new SET amplifiers are uniquely DC stable. This means our SET amplifiers will not generate speaker damaging DC drift even when driven past clipping.
The combination of our design ideas allow the amplifiers to run cooler, last longer, and be amazingly fault tolerant. Four mos-fet output transistors, standard on the SET 120, handle difficult speaker loads (4 Ohm loads and up). Plenty of power for any rational loudspeaker.
Power Supply Circuits
The SET 120 has an oversized high capacity toroid power transformer that is voltage regulated to provide incredible dynamic range, bass extension, transient detail, and air. All of the power supply parts are selected for long life, reliability and operate well within their technical specification ratings.
All new SET power amplifiers have regulated power supplies for all areas of the amplifier including the output transistors which provide unequaled bass control and micro dynamics. There are no unregulated power supplies - anywhere!
The SET 120 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.
