Swedish high-end audio manufacturer Marten generally stick to speakers, but their latest work, the attractive M-Amp monoblock, is their first foray into the world of powered amplifiers. But are slick looks and distortion-free sound reproduction worth $US45,000/pair to you?
According to Stereophile, this pair of amplifiers produces sound that one would expect from a more technically capable setup. And Ultimate AV Mag describes the M-Amp’s internal workings as such:
The fully balanced M-Amp is based on Marten’s proprietary Adaptive Modulation Servo (AMS) technology, which is described as an “inverting, globally self-oscillating, class-D stage” as well as a “load-independent, wide-bandwidth, first-order modulator, switching at 600kHz, with a constant loop gain of 30dB all the way up to the switching frequency.”
