Replaced... The most successful Vincent amplifier of all time
Under the leadership of Frank Blöhbaum, who is the developer of the Thorens electronics and the Auto-Bias control of the T.A.C. tube amplifiers, the circuit design was completely revised and improved. Thus, in the output stage section a phase reserve of 90° was reached by making various changes. This phase reserve provides a much better transient response to complex loads (loudspeakers).
Because the amplifier always works virtually during normal operation in state of the transient oscillation - Music represents transient pulses – the improvements can be heard elementary. Musicality and sound are much better than its predecessor. Even the most difficult loudspeakers can be powered easily. The amplifier always dominates the complex load (loudspeaker) without sounding strained.
The preamplifier section was fitted in the second stage with 6N1P tubes. The greater voltage level provides better signal stability. This results in a higher spectral purity of the signal which causes a further improvement in fine detail in the sound. Here, the tube-like musicality is maintained and an analytical coldness never comes in the sound. Another advantage of the improved circuit design is a greatly improved signal to noise ratio. It results in an excellent playback quality also on high efficiency speakers such as the Impulse series of Dynavox: Noise was once. Enjoy explosive live performance as a result of excellent dynamics.
THE NEW CONCEPT 40 LOUDSPEAKER
Q Acoustics introduces ‘Concept 40’, an elegant new floorstanding loudspeaker which sets new standards of sonic performance at its price.
Award-winning pedigree In common with the Concept 20, its award-winning little brother, the new Concept 40’s unparalleled soundstage and sheer
musicality is achieved by incorporating outstanding drive units into a lacquered, State-of-the-Art, ‘GelcoreTM Construction’, ultra-low
‘GelcoreTM Construction, specially developed for acoustic enclosures, is in effect a ‘cabinet within a cabinet’, separated by
a resonance absorbing compound. This enables the drive units to simply reproduce music, unencumbered by the level of cabinet
induced distortions found in conventional designs.
The Kubik K11 S is a 3 way floorstanding speaker – 6 drivers. Its 31cm driver on the side allows to design a slender and thin loudspeaker. The low frequencies are reproduced with astonishing power, uncolored and with total control of the bass. Around the tweeter, the 4 midranges with d’Appolito configuration reproduce music with unbelievable presence. Combined with the KUBIK KSUB 200 subwoofer, the K3S loudspeaker and the Kcenter speaker, it can be integrated in a qualitative « Home Theater » system.
The Hi-Fi Soundbar with built-in subwoofer
The Q Acoustics Media 4 is a high performance soundbar,
designed to deliver high fidelity music and high quality audio from a
TV, set top box, tablets and smartphones. With Bluetooth, Apt-X, NFC, Built-in subwoofer
The ‘Concept 20’ is a special loudspeaker which goes beyond anything that Q Acoustics has achieved before. It’s a beautifully styled product which we confidently believe provides a level of sonic performance previously thought impossible at its price point.
The Concept 20 loudspeaker cabinet incorporates ‘Gelcore Construction’TM In effect a ‘cabinet within a cabinet’, with a special resonancecancelling compound adhering between the inner and outer shells. This cabinet is both rigid and exhibits extremely low resonance. The latter is achieved through the resonance-cancelling compound absorbing the kinetic energy (movement) generated within the cabinet by the drive units, then dispersing it by converting it into heat.
The integrated amplifier X-i90 is the second model of the new X-Line range. Its sober and pure cosmetics gives it a luxurious and timeless touch.
Technically new and decidedly audiophile design, the integrated
amplifier X-i90 will delight for budget conscious music lovers wanting
to maximise their investment.
Equipped with eight power transistors, the integrated amplifier X-i90 delivers a power of 2 x 90 watts into 8 Ohms and its « Hi Bias » function will allow it to supply easily most of the loudspeakers found on the market.
Offering a DAC, and various analog inputs, the X-i90 will enable to meet the consumers demand.
Its complete remote control device will make it easier to use.
A medium sized bookshelf design that exudes quality. The beautifully finished, low resonance cabinet encapsulates the 25mm ferro-fluid cooled tweeter and precision engineered 125mm bass driver to produce a speaker with extended bass, an open mid-range, astonishing transient response and exceptional high frequency clarity. The 2000ST or 2000WB allow the 2020 to be stand or wall mounted.
