Berlin-based high-end audio manufacturer MBL is set to introduce its new mbl C15 Mono Power Amplifier at the High End 2012 show in Munich this May.
The new amp rounds out the existing new Corona Line of mbl C31 CD-Player, mbl C11 Preamplifier, mbl C51 Integrated Amplifier and mbl C21 Stereo-Power Amplifier. With its striking, unique blend of cutting-edge minimalist design and classical elegance the mbl C15 effortlessly adapts to its line siblings.
The C15’s beauty runs far below its smooth aluminum surface. MBL has implemented its LASA-technology (Linear Analog Switching Amplifier) and as a result has a homogeneous characteristic of THD throughout the frequency range and also the frequency response is load independent. The output power range is totally unaffected by distortion therefore each instrument at each volume level will be played genuinely. Thus, a perfectly balanced sound in quiet passages is guaranteed as well as then, when turning up the volume.
The new amp always remains calm and confident, and with its 500 W (4 ohms) it can comfortably drive any loudspeaker load.
German precision design and execution dominate the inner-workings of the mbl C15. All power supplies and transformers are not only screened off by magnetically shielded partitions encapsulated in MU metal, but they are also electrically isolated. The Power Amplifier offers both balanced (XLR) and unbalanced (RCA) inputs. The loudspeakers can be wired in Single-Wiring or in Bi-Wiring modus. A novel intelligent MBL SmartLink network enables the Corona devices to talk with one another via standard Ethernet cables. Updates for equipment software can simply be uploaded via the integrated SD card reader. Stand-by power consumption is in the environmentally friendly range of below 1 VA (True “Green” Standby).
As with all Corona Line products, the mbl C15 is available in a choice of two standard colors: smart white or elegant black, each with a choice of Gold plated, Palinux plated, and various lacquer finish options. The price is € 9.600.
