Amplifier Exposure XXXV

Also the British tradition manufacturer exposure adapts to the taste of the time with the XXXV (3,000 euros). Our testing shows that’s it but is not pandering.

  2. Data sheet

Like many companies in the United Kingdom had also exposure the task, their proud tradition adapted to the demands of the modern era. But this is always a balancing act. Finally, you want won’t be spooked by Yes fans, but find still new. So the amplifier XXXV reveals himself for 3,000 euros by its simple, by two buttons immediately as typical exposure device embossed look, and his weight testifies of 11.5 kilograms, one still opts whopping power supplies in the southern English port of loading.
The look confirms that in the Interior: the 400-VA toroidal transformer is obvious. Compared with the concepts of company founder John Farlow of current developer Tony Brady has decided but not to regulate the operating voltage for the bipolar transistors. He justified this decision, regulator, which cope with high performance, to be somewhat sluggish and would suffer through the transient response. Because he is also of the opinion that a stable power supply is extremely important, has the XXXV channel separated stabilization for the portion of pre-amplifier and even for the final amplifier circuit up to the levels of the driver.
The Toshiba power transistors that enable more high-frequency information according to Brady as the old, built for exposure types in metal TO3 packages are new.
The body with large components that populate the two circuit boards is classic. Two circuit boards, because in the XXXV of prehistory and the final amplifier section are strictly separated. Which makes sense, since so the high currents, which are on the amplifier Board, can interfere with the fine signals of the precursor of less.
The optional phono Board for 350 euro are traditional to name a few. You did a very good service in prepress XXIII (6/04).
That the XXXV has two preamp outputs, then delighted the fans who want to connect an additional amplifier to power as the frequency ranges of speakers separately.
In the listening test, the XXXV claimed already solo well. So he liked by very open height and built on delicate sound dreams. That he properly could long out here, the comparison to the stereoplay highlight showed T + A 1230 R (5/07). Although he gave a somewhat fulminate bass, but the exposure spread the more fragrant heights. Also, he seemed coherent time between of the musicians.
Also in the representation of space, the testers recorded a stalemate. Could the 1230 deeper stagger R Orchestra, the XXXV something more physically outlined individual instruments, presented larger and formed from more generous in width. Thus grew the sound events far beyond the base of the boxes.
Then, when the phono boards in use were, he showed a slightly warmer sound characteristics. The XXXV especially flourished, if reference turntable Linn LP 12 SE (3/07) with the MC reference pickup Lyra Titan i (6/06) came to the course. Now he drew not only with more opulent color palette, but produced a veritable goosebumps feeling for dramatic passages.
Overall, the XXXV masterfully combines old and new ways and offers a very interesting alternative to well-trodden paths even analog fans.
