The newest version of our 200wpc Hybrid stereo power amp includes the use of new exotic capacitors, Super matched distributed node output devices, improved electrical grounding, and advanced power supply mechanical chassis isolation.
The Atlas Eclipse Stereo features the Stealthcap™ capacitor, made with exotic new conductors, dielectric material, and composite resins to dramatically reduce reflections, enhancing focus and articulation with blacker backgrounds.
The output stage of Atlas Eclipse Stereo features Super matched pair output devices. In every version of the Atlas, each Bi-polar output device (16 per channel) is supplied power through a copper bus bar design, radically reducing impedance compared to standard circuit board traces. In the Eclipse version, Distributed node film capacitors are added at each output device, further reducing impedance for increased current capacity and improved transient capability.
All power supply components: the high current transformer, high voltage transformer, high voltage choke, driver choke and high current choke, are de-coupled from the chassis using specially designed isolation mounts. This dramatically reduces the amount of mechanical vibration introduced into the chassis. High current power supply wire is also upgraded. Additionally, since the transformers are no longer in contact to the chassis at multiple points, a single point system is used to ground the transformer cases, further reducing AC-induced noise.
