They are probably the result of even order harmonic distortion – a hallmark of the SET – that do not occur to any significant degree in the Densen amplifiers. The Alps potentiometers for volume control are marvelously smooth and noise free, allowing a very gradual increase in sound levels even in the 7 – 10 o’clock region.

Since the DM and B are designed with the shortest signal path in mind, tape loops are out of the picture.

The tape inputs and outputs are not tape dfnsen. The amplifiers are built partially by robot, and partially by hand assembly. Densen DM10 Integrato 75 watt. This is in keeping with Densen’s philosophy of not simply having a low profile, but allowing as little circuitry in the signal path as possible.

However, either amplifier can be used with a surround sound processor if the processor has the capability of routing the unprocessed signal through when it is turned off. One of the most important fm characteristics of these amplifiers is the lack of global negative feedback.

The basic difference between the DM and B is in dynamic range, and perhaps a bit in the detail of the upper mid-range as well as the high end. The densem portion of the audio spectrum is laid back, not quite as much as the SET, but just a little, and the mid-range is glorious, just like the SET. Both the DM and the B are among the finest integrated amplifiers we have ever heard.

Negative feedback can produce distortion of its own, however, and too much of dense becomes obvious when listening to sibilants the “s” in wordswhere it sounds as if someone is hissing at you. Di cosa si tratta Integrato 75 watt. We obtained not only the DM for testing, but the new BEAT B as well, and, as you will see, both amplifiers are very special in sound quality as well as their design. The presence of negative feedback has several purposes, among others: Because the DM and B use no global negative feedback, the damping factor is very modest.

There are proponents and opponents of negative feedback, regardless of its shortcomings, and Densen has chosen the design route of using no global feedback which is very difficult to do in a solid state push-pull amplifier. There are separate windings for the output stages bipolar transistors and the remaining portions of the amplifiers the DM as well as the B The sound of the DM and B is somewhat like a single ended triode tube SET amplifier, and that is a complement indeed. The thumps are due to the lack of any additional circuitry which would eliminate the thump but possibly degrade the signal.

Unlike the SET, however, the bass region on the Densens is powerful and deep. There are some subtle differences, too, mostly noticeable in the background of the SET sound.

The sound of the DM and B is somewhat like a single ended triode tube SET amplifier, and that is a complement indeed.

The box and foam rubber protection weigh as much as some amplifiers! One of the most important design characteristics of these amplifiers is the lack of global negative feedback. The presence of negative feedback has several purposes, among others: There are separate windings for the output stages bipolar transistors and the remaining portions of the amplifiers the DM as well as the B In fact, the LED on the DM took 45 minutes to completely turn off since it is connected to the power capacitors.

We highly recommend that you audition these superb components. There are only two knobs on the front, one for volume control and the other for selecting the inputs.
