Apl Hifi HAS-Master amplification NEW


NEW Unique Hybrid Modular Amplification System, designed to provide unparalleled sound quality, cost no object. It offers the naturalness and liquidity of Single-Ended, Direct-Heated 2A3 or 300B triodes, combined with explosively dynamic, high-current IGBT power output stages, capable of driving even the most difficult speakers with ease.

The HAS-Master amplification system is an all-hand-made boutique, designed for the most enthusiastic audiophiles who cannot settle for anything else but the absolute best.

This design concept represents the culmination of our 25 years experience that includes various all-solid-state and all-tube power amplifier designs.

The HAS-M is not to be confused with a tube preamplifier driving two solid state monoblocks. Every power amplifier has a voltage gain stage, in order to amplify the small signal coming from the preamplifier or any source, and a power current stage so it can drive the speakers. The HAS-M Control Unit provides all the voltage gain using 6SN7 driver and 2A3 or 300B output tubes, while the two Power Units provide the ample current needed to drive the speakers, and have no voltage gain. In other words, the HAS-Master system is an Unique Modular Hybrid Integrated Power Amplifier in a class of its very own.
