This small stereo power amplifier shows everyone that size does not necessarily have anything to do with greatness. With the power of 570 W it has every speaker under control. Thanks to VOLTAiR technology, it is fast, precise and highly efficient with outstanding sound.
The Performer s800 has a protection circuit against DC voltage and a limiter against output overload.
If direct current (DC) is detected, the output stage switches off automatically and the Protect LED lights up red.
To protect the output against overdriving, an LDR limiter (light-dependent resistor) is used. Since it works optically, the audio quality is not affected. The Protect LED lights up yellow when the limiter responds.
so it echoes out.
This saying inspired us to send the input signal out again in order to drive another power amplifier in bi-amping mode.
With reference to the s800, “fit” means adapted. And you can adapt the input sensitivity in 0.5 dB steps. From 0 dB to -5.5 dB.
This is the much more audiophile solution for acoustically problematic rooms or loudspeaker set-ups than the panorama potentiometer of the preamplifier.
In addition, the difference in loudness of loudspeakers can be elegantly compensated in bi-amping mode.
The loudspeaker binding posts can accommodate banana plugs as well as a stranded wire with a diameter of up to 4mm.
For bi-wiring operation, both types of connection can be used together.
No loudspeaker with less than 4 ohms impedance may be connected.
You can turn the two power amplifier channels into one power amplifier by connecting only the two plus pole terminals to the loudspeaker. This allows 450W into 8 Ohm in mono operation mode.
The power amplifier can be switched on and off using the AMP CTL connection between the Performer s800 and a preamplifier such as the Director Mk2 or the Crossover.
Third-party preamps can also switch the Performer s800 on and off with their 12 V trigger.
