The Performer m1000 is the big brother of the highly acclaimed Performer s800.
Built as a mono block it features SPL's proprietary VOLTAiR technology that allows creating power amps with far less components in the signal path than common designs. Only one pre-amplifier op-amp is required to drive the bipolar power amplifier transistors: extremely fast, direct, highly efficient and with an extraordinary sound.
The Performer m1000 delivers 1000 W into 2 ohms or 750 W into 4 ohms out of a linear power supply with a massive toroidal transformer.
Ultra-Compact: The Performer m1000 amplifier is an ultra-compact power amplifier. Thanks to the VOLTAiR technology this power amplifier has absolute control over the speakers up to their load limits.
Toroidal Transformer: The Performer m1000 is equipped with a 1375 VA toroidal transformer. After many listening tests, SPL were convinced that a fully analog power amplifier with a power supply built around a toroidal transformer sounds superior to digital amplifiers and power amplifiers with switch mode power supplies.
Protection: The Performer m1000 has a protection circuit against DC (direct current) voltage at the output and a limiter against overloading the output.
Custom Made Mundorf Coil: The Performer m1000 is equipped with a custom 3,8µH coil made by German high-end specialist Mundorf.
Processor Controlled Cooling: Heat dissipation is done with a micro-processor controlled fan cooling that only gets activated when the internal temperature exceeds certain limits. In standard operation the fan may not even start working at all. But if so, the fan speed and thereby its noise level is temperature dependent.
- Inputs & Outputs: The Performer m1000 is equipped with Neutrik XLR input and output connectors for balanced operation. The input signal is passively routed to the output connector to feed e.g. a second power amplifier for bi-wiring.
- Amp Control: The Performer m1000 has a 3.5mm mono jack designated as AMP CTL (amplifier control). With the appropriate cable, the Performer can be connected to a preamplifier, so that when you turn the preamplifier on the amplifier is automatically switched on, too. In our Pro-Fi series the Director, Phonitor x and the Crossover provide AMP CTL ports.
