The Bricasti Model 28 monoblock amplifier is an exceptionally pure and precisely controlled reservoir of current. The expression of craft wrought in this deep pool effortlessly provides the massive current required to grab onto and control any speaker through the most demanding of musical passages. The sought after listening experience that is so elusive is immediately evident. The Model 28 is conservatively rated at 200 watts into an 8 ohm load. Ruler flat response and vanishing distortion, of course. Fast, articulate, distortion free low frequency performance, even at the speaker’s resonant peak, perhaps unanticipated.
Gain, Set, Match
A balanced differential structure minimises the stress across each of the Model 28 amplifier’s internal elements. Pairing the Model 28 with the balanced structure of the Bricasti M1 digital to analogue converter forms a balanced differential signal flow from source to speaker. This unique pairing forms an optimised engineered system that announces a natural yet rarely heard sonic ease. For added flexibility the Model 28 offers 18 dB of stepped attenuated gain adjustment to enable proper level matching with any audio source or listening space. An RS232 link conveys status information for monitoring a number of system functions.
A harmony of concept and function, the M28 amplifier exhibits the precision and beauty of a thoroughly engineered system. The milled aluminium chassis is carved to exacting tolerances. Each electronic element mates to a purpose built location within the chassis. Thoughtful use of mass and passive ventilation assure the uniform distribution of heat and a cool touch under any load. Performance criteria is assured through both electronic and thermal design as well as an extensive analysis of each completed system.
