The DVA SET 600 monoblock 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 DVA SET 600 is our most powerful solid state amplifier. It is rated at 600 watts into 8 ohms and over 700W into 4 ohms and operates safely into 2 ohms. It’s comfortable paired with any speaker, including speakers demanding a LOT of power. Using burst measurements, the SET 600 puts out 775W into 8 ohms and 1500W into 4 ohms.
The DVA SET 600 has awesome dynamic range, definition, and transparency. There is a amazing faithfulness to the spirit of 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.
Standard configuration includes an XLR balanced input, parallel 5-way gold plated speaker jacks, and external speaker fuses.
The face plate is our sculpted two tone silver/grey 1/4” thick aluminum face plate. The face plate features our incredibly durable double anodized finish.
Audio CircuitsThe 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 mos-fet current amplifier section. Bandwidth is flat from 3Hz to 70KHz.
Our 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. Sixteen double-die mos-fet output transistors, standard on the DVA SET 600, handle difficult speaker loads (2 Ohm loads and up). Plenty of power for any rational loudspeaker.
Power Supply and Layout
The DVA SET 600 has an oversized high capacity torrid 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 DVA SET 600 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: 17" wide, 13" deep, 7" high. Shipping weight is 38 pounds.
