Power Amplifier XP-A500 Class AD completely balanced, Dual Mono, Dual Power Supply
Extraudio a different concept focused on satisfing the experience of the audiophile...
Our AD class power amplifier can be reconfigured or upgraded in the future by swapping the internal amplification module for a more or less powerful one. This option increases product life and improves compatibility with all types of speakers while offering more efficient use of power.
The module installed in this model is 500Wrms X2. These modules are the musical muscle of the amplification system and have a completely flat frequency response.
The best way to describe this power amp is to highlight its devastating influence, its speed, its attack, its large and realistic bass that combines softness with a touch of warmth and sweetness. However, its most outstanding feature is the degree of realism it conveys when playing music completely transparent.
This power amp has been designed taking into account the ability to handle any type of speaker, no matter how difficult it is to drive, either due to its size or its power demands.
At the same time, it offers a soft sound with delicacy respecting the essence of the music; The sustain, weight and transparency of the musical notes and completely balanced and silent.
In addition, thanks to its energy efficiency it is one of the few power stages on the market that is configurable, efficient and ecological.
Fully balanced power amplifier.
For unbalanced inputs and for galvanic isolation, we use audiophile grade transformers. The windings are arranged to give perfect symmetry if the transformer is used in input and output applications. The two coil structure also greatly improves immunity to external magnetic fields from power supplies and motors. Primary and secondary windings are separated by electrostatic shields. The transformer is housed in a mu-metal.
The Extraudio XP-A500 power amplifier is a high performance class AD* modified by Extraudio to work in conjunction with our XP1 preamplifier, the modification consists of the perfect integration of impedance and load capacitance between the preamplifier and the power amplifier in the pure class A input buffer.
The main distinguishing features are flat frequency response regardless of load impedance, almost frequency independent distortion behavior, and very low radiated and conducted EMI. The control is based on a phase shift controlled auto-oscillating loop that takes feedback only at the speaker output.
