Thanks to the VOLTAiR technology the Performer s800 needs far less components in the signal path than common power amplifiers. The pre-amplifier can directly drive the bipolar power amplifier transistors. Extremely fast, direct, highly efficient and with an extraordinary sound.
The Performer power amplifier effortlessly controls the speakers with a power of up to 2x 285 W into 4 ohms out of an analog linear power supply with toroidal transformer. In Bridge mode the Performer s800 delivery 450 W into 4 and 8 ohms speakers.
Ultra-Compact:The Performer s800 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 s800 is equipped with a 855 VA toroidal transformer.
Protection: The Performer s800 has protection circuit against DC (direct current) voltage at the output and a limiter against overloading the output.
Inputs & Outputs: The Performer s800 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 s800 has a 3.5mm mono jack designated as AMP CTR (amplifier control). With the appropriate cable, the Performer can be connected to a pre-amplifier, so that when you turn the pre-amplifier on the amplifier is automatically switched on, too. In our Pro-Fi series the Director Phonitor x and the Crossover provide AMP CTR ports.
