Advance Acoustic MAP 101 Integrated Amplifier

The black line series of advance acoustic is a credit to their name and remains completely black. The angular, masculine-looking equipment together weigh 12 kilograms and present a two-part metal front. Processing and grab quality turn out properly, but they don’t quite get to the noble, excellently processed combo from Denon.

  2. Data sheet

The front of the MAP 101 adorns a small display, which displays the volume. Also provides the amplifier preamp outputs and main entrance, usually associated with gold-plated metal bridges, the ability to grind about an equalizer into the signal path – or an active subwoofer with high-pass filter. He could remove the heavy deep bass work to two amplifiers. Another highlight: The small high-bias switch on the back put the amplifier into so-called class-A operation. It flows through the transistors, what is to keep the distortion less a higher quiescent current. But lower performance on about 10 Watts per channel.
Compared hearing amplifier offered a positive image the testers. The MAP 101 by advance acoustic was homogeneous, fine and admitted no hardness. The instruments were primarily in the class-A operation still three-dimensional and plastic. Katie Meluas of gently flowing anthem “Shy Boy” the Frenchman played relaxed and showed no tonal weakness, yet the voice was warm and natural.
But how to play on the devices of the manufacturers in the two team? The chain of advance acoustic has strong fundamental tone without any harshness and sounded remarkably homogeneous and finely with any kind of music. In singing passages, the acoustic were silky and pleasant. Unfortunately, the devices with meaner pieces in places created the illusion that they are a little had to make an effort to follow the pace.
