Circle Labs A200

The A200 is a hybrid integrated amplifier that offers power output of 120W/8Ω, 200W/4Ω and is equipped with a balanced XLR input, four pairs of RCA inputs and a direct power amplifier input that bypasses the preamplifier.

 

Volume regulation is implemented via a resistor ladder sourced from the prestigious company Khozomo. Resistors with a tolerance of 0.1% are switched using state of the art relays which guarantees the highest possible precision and long term durability traditional potentiometers can't match.

 

The A200's preamplifer is designed around a NOS Siemens vacuum tube with stable polarisation; this minimalist solution allows for the lowest possible number of passive components: one vacuum tube, a resistor, and a state of the art capacitor made of solid copper foil. The extremely short signal path directly influences the neutrality of sound and dynamism of transmission.

 

The A200's "Circle Power" topology is an original development of Circle Labs and we believe is the best combination of tube and transistor devices. This design uses a single-ended input stage with current steering of a BJT output stage and combines the detail and precision of single-ended systems with the efficiency and dynamics of balanced systems. The A200's power amplifier is a true dual-mono design with separate toroidal transformers and power supplies with a combined capacitance of 200,000µF

Avantgarde – ZERO 1 XD

 

More integrated, compact and simple and yet a veritable horn loudspeaker?to the very last decibel. The ZERO 1 is a dream come true ? one that Avantgarde have shared with many music lovers for over twenty years. Though fascinated, moved and amazed by Avantgardes larger acoustic transducers we have always longed for a more compact horn loudspeaker to make the incomparable experience of Avantgarde Acoustic accessible to a wider audience of audio enthusiasts. The ZERO 1 opens up this new road with a revolutionary size simplified shape hassle-free setup and fully integrated processor and amplifier technology.

INNOVATIVE DIPOLE SPEAKER

The elegant speaker is designed as a line source speaker with dipole radiator characteristics. Four ribbon tweeters guarantee a supremely natural, detailed and spatial sound. This is enhanced by the two 180 mm woofers and two same-sized passive radiators with a powerful bass foundation.

NEW COMPACT LINE SOURCE DRIVERS

 

The only 23 centimeter wide baffle has been provided with a smaller and specially crafted version of the ribbon for the midrange/high frequency range. These four ribbons were installed above each other in a line. They operate on the dipole principle and radiate the sound to the front and rear simultaneously in the form of a vertical cylindrical sound wave. A slatted acoustic lens here ensures the production of a completely diffuse sound field behind the MLS 3.
