Description

The PA-1175 MkII is Gold Note’s top of the range power amplifier.

It delivers 200watts into 8ohms when used as a stereo power amplifier, when used in pairs bridged into mono the power output increases to 520 watts (into 8ohms), whether used by itself or in pairs the PA-1175 MkII will happily drive just about loudspeaker in existence.

It is a Class AB power amplifier and can be perfectly matched to a wide variety of loudspeakers, thanks to the selectable damping factor. The proprietary optical BIAS offers high power combined with very low distortion: it controls the reference voltage with great precision and stability compared to traditional systems. The optical signal analysis takes place separately from the audio path, ensuring loudspeaker protection and unbeatable performance.

The damping can be adjusted very easily from the front panel, there are 2 settings 250DF and 25DF, 250DF allows the full potential of large, low-sensitivity loudspeakers to be exploited, while the value at 25DF is a perfect match for high-efficiency loudspeakers or small monitors that do not like the high current output of large amplifiers.

The PA-1175 MkII is designed to minimise all kinds of RFI and EMI interference, taking advantage of the thick aluminium panels featuring the typical Gold Note design.

The power transformer is a special toroidal design featuring a spiral core. The refined mechanical process makes the core completely stable, cancelling out any mechanical vibrations and guaranteeing exceptional performance and perfect isolation. A small secondary transformer takes care of all auxiliary functions to preserve the audio signal.
