The Linar A105 amplifier offers the highest level of detailed sound possible. This is achieved by running the output transistors at their optimal level, with much more current than Class AB or Class B amplification. The increase in detail comes at the expense of efficiency, however, and results in a lower overall power rating. Class A amplifiers will also run much hotter than other amplifiers since they use considerably more current when idle.
The Linar A105 amplifier gives you the benefits of both vacuum tube and solid state amplifiers. With the finest MOSFET Transistors and an intelligent circuit design, the A105 delivers smooth tube-like sound, while retaining the detail, power, speed, and bass-control of the best solid-state amplifiers. The A105 has a straightforward design, free of signal path capacitors. Conservatively rated at 50 watts per channel, the Linar 105 can drive speakers that other Class A amplifiers can only dream of. With zero feedback configuration, and a remarkably stable circuit, the Linar A105 has a unique ability to drive capacitive loads. This makes it an ideal choice for users of complex, and high-current speaker designs. The circuitry is fully complementary from input to output.
Continuing the tradition of Linar’s designs, the A105 offers you flexibility in both configurations and connections. The amplifier can be connected with either XLR or RCA interconnects, operated in either balanced or unbalanced mode, and allows the user to choose between inverting and uninverting inputs. The A105 can also be bridged into a Balanced Monaural Amplifier that delivers 200 watts of Class A power into 8 ohms.
Linar's advanced soft-start and instant-off circuitry limit the in-rush of electrical current during power-up and power-down cycles. This avoids sending potentially damaging noise to the speakers, as well as avoiding stress to AC components. The amplifier is constantly monitoring the output stages for DC voltage. If sensed, the amplifier will turn off automatically to protect the speakers and the audio circuitry.
The power, finesse, and flexibility of the Linar A105 make it the right choice for any high-end audio system where moderate power levels are required. If you are searching for the ultimate in detailed sound, at moderate power ratings, then the Linar A105 should be on your short-list.
