Unlimited Power. Effortless Speed. Seductive Refinement.
The no compromise power amp leaving no stone unturned.
This proverbial iron fist in a velvet glove allows presentations where everything is in the right space, at the right time, in the right dimension. As the Audionet reference mono block pair, the MAX has the responsibility of showing just what amplification technology is capable of under the most demanding conditions. The fans couldn’t be happier.
Featuring Audionet’s Ultra Linear Amplification technology, a MAX pair can drive the largest speakers effortlessly. The MAX drives every speaker with the realism, quickness and transparency expected from live instruments and performers yet rarely heard from electrical components.
Four separate transformers power each controller. All MAX signal paths are entirely free of interfering electromechanical components. Capacitors are also excluded from the small number of signal paths. This increases the responsiveness further by keeping all magnetic interference minimized. Each MAX also has automatic mains phase recognition, discrete voltage regulators, and a bi-wiring terminal with two pairs of WTF nextgen™ pole terminals.
A microprocessor monitors internal parameters such as the high frequency, current, and temperature giving the MAX to disconnect in case of a fault to prevent damage. An additional benefit of having a ‘smart’ amplifier is the ability to integrate into a home network via the Audionet Link for control by Logitech remote or DNx series equipment.
