The B-130XS in reality is a downscaled B-150PLUS using many of the same advanced solutions, that has made the B-150PLUS amplifier of the year, and editors choice in many countries.
Compared to the "old" B-130 and B-130PLUS, the B-130XS is significantly upgraded in the audio circuit, resulting in an even more impressive performance, than before. Further it has a new interface, that will allow it to control an internal Densen DAC with USB, Toslink and COAX digital inputs, where the push buttons on the front and the Gizmo will control the input selection, and the display will correctly indicate which input on the DAC that is chosen.
This new DAC will be launched in 2015. The B-130XS is prepared for it, but will require a software update to control it. This software update, will be done free of charge by your Densen distributor.
The B-130XS contains Densen's strong signature of engaging and neutral sound, with both details and dynamics. The topology solutions are highly advanced, and not normal present in amplifiers in this price range. Like all other Densen amplifiers the B-130XS is a non-feedback design, using extremely fast and reliable transistors, and other high quality parts to make an amplifier which no matter the loading, will perform at its best.
The B-130XS contains several unique features, like processor loop, to allow easy connection to external surround processors and the possibility of adding Densens SB-1 or SB-2 analogue surround boards for easy connection to BluRay players with analogue 5+1 or 7+1 output.
Also there is internal sockets for Densens DP-03 MM stage, and the forthcoming DP-06 MC stage.
