NEW AAVIK CONTROL AND POWER AMPLIFIERS

Aavik Acoustics writes: "Aavik’s unwavering quest to meet the ultimate audio demands of enthusiats of high-end music has been driving their latest achievement in amplifier technology: the new Aavik 280 and 580 series of separate Control- and Power amplifiers." 

Both new Aavik series set new standards for all critical crite- ria that define the unadulterated sound quality of authentic music and evoke that unique sensation of emotional ease and deeply felt passion.

Aavik’s new standalone series are equipped with sophisti- cated noise suppressing technologies that brings down the noise floor to unprecedented levels and unleash a dynamic scale of music that project even the tiniest musical details onto a palpably larger sound stage with an extremely quiet background.

The C and P 580 separates is Aavik’s flagship version. What marks out this premium series is their additional noise reduction control and the installation of switchless, optical LDR-based components. They generate a dramatically lower noise floor than conventionally used switches and relays.

This allows to audibly unleash even the tiniest musical details onto an amazingly holistic sound stage.

What also elevates the Aavik 580 standalone series to a higher performance level is its inner chassis, which is made of solid copper. The effect of this is a further reduction in the hysteresis, which secures more energy and power to the music

The new Aavik analog crossover is securing a precise timing to all the receiving components. This is extremely important to avoid an unnaturally harsh and compressed sound. The new Aavik crossover has been designed to either very precisely control a subwoofer or with the integrated low pass and high pass filter to control a 2.1 home theater system. Alternative- ly, Aavik’s new analog crossover can also function as analog room correction control.

Switchless Optical Input board – LDR based

The LDR (Light dependent resistor) is ultra quiet thanks to the switchless principle. The traditional switch arrays and relays are more noisy. They suppress subtle sound details and unnaturally colour the tone.

Separate Power supply

The separate power supply ensures sufficient power reserves. This adds more control and results in a larger dynamic headroom.

AAVIK’S NEW ANALOG CROSSOVER

The Aavik analog crossover secures a precise timing in the delivery of sound signals to the receiving components. This is essential to avoid a harsh and compressed sound. The new Aavik crossover has been designed to either very pre- cisely control a subwoofer or with the integrated low pass and high pass filter to control a 2.1 home theater system. Alternatively, Aavik’s new analog crossover can function as analog room correction control.

Excellent and absolutely precise subwoofer control

Since the crossover is analog, there is no latency. The timing of the signal transfer to both the speakers and the subwoofer is absolutely precise. This results in an utmost pristine and authentic sound. Other conventional crossovers, such as DSP transport the signal through a digital circuit. This results in a latency of 15-20 msec. The effect of a failing precision in the timing of the signal transfer to the speakers, respectively the subwoofer, impairs an authentic audio reproduction, creates a compressed sound and adds a harsh tone to the music.

Control your home theater and your 2.1 audio setup

By using the low pass and high pass filter, the sound performance of your individual speak-

ers can be optimized. When directing the low frequencies to the subwoofer, more energy to the main speakers will be released. To ensure an even volume of the speakers and the subwoofer, the gain on the high pass and the low pass filter can separately be controlled.

Analog Room Correction – prevent “Room Boom”, the annoying pressure resonance

Room correction is a matter of identifying and eliminating room resonance.

The one specific resonance that creates an un- pleasant and disturbing sound is a pressure reso- nance resulting from the given size of the room

– subjectively, it feels like a “boom” emanating from the speakers. To eliminate this room specif- ic resonance, the new Aavik amplifiers can adapt their audio performance and make allowances for any given room size. Both the low pass and high pass filter allow the listener to set the exact frequency progress around those low frequencies which cause this disturbing ‘Boom’ effect.

AAVIK P-580 – POWERHOUSE WITH AN ULTRA LOW NOISE LEVEL

Aavik UMACTM amplifier – Unmatched Audio Control

At Aavik we utilize the patented UMACTM amplifier technology. This technology was developed to avoid the design flaws of traditional switching amplifiers. UMAC technology primarily targets two areas of modulated amplifier design. Firstly, the PWM* generation is produced with sine wave modulation rather than the more common triangle modulation. The benefit is that sine waves create far less high frequency noise than triangles, no sharp corners, and thus require far less inductive filtering at the output. The lower inductance in the output gives the amplifiers a much better damping factor and thus a distinctly better speaker control. Secondly, the advanced dual mixed mode feedback allows damping fac- tors that are characteristic of only the very best linear amplifiers.

Switchless Optical gain selection – LDR based

The LDR (Light dependent resistor) is ultra quiet thanks to the switchless principle. The tradi- tional MOS-FET switch arrays and relays create much more noise. They suppress subtle sound details and unnaturally color the tone.

Resonant mode power supply – Quiet but extremely powerful

The power supply allows a much better power distribution and a huge dynamic headroom. Unlike the square waves used by conventional switch mode power supplies, the Aavik resonant mode power supplies boast a design which is principally driven by sine waves.

When more power is needed, the operating fre- quency increases, which in turn has the advan- tage that the power density also increases. This provides a higher peak power when required by the music.

AAVIK C AND P-280 SERIES – CONTROL AND POWER AMPLIFIER

This amplifier combo shares much of the sophisticated DNA from the flagship 580 series securing the unique sound quality of authentic music and evoke a sensation of emotional ease and deeply felt passion.
