P-4500 Stereo Power Amplifier

The quest for the optimal power amplifier has just taken another giant leap forward. The P-4500 features an instrumentation amplifier configuration realized with discrete semiconductors in the signal path, triple Darlington 4-parallel complementary push-pull architecture and many other technology advantages. The result is an impressive S/N ratio of 121 dB, rated output of 500 watts into 1 ohm (music signals), and a damping factor of 700. A newly developed output protection circuit can also detect any short-circuiting of the speaker terminals, for complete peace of mind. This power amplifier is the ultimate tool for immersive music enjoyment on the highest level.

  • Power amplification stage with 4-parallel complementary push-pull configuration
  • Linear output characteristics (90 W / 8 ohms, 180 W / 4 ohms, 360 W / 2 ohms)
  • 500 W output into ultra-low impedance load of 1 ohm (music signals)
  • Instrumentation amplifier principle
  • Current feedback topology
  • Balanced Remote Sensing
  • High damping factor of 700
  • Speaker output protection with short-circuit detection
  • Highly responsive large peak power meters
  • Support for bi-amping and bridged mode

 

 

 

 

Continuous Average Output power (20-20,000 Hz)

Stereo Operation (both channels driven:  

500 W/ch = 1-ohms load *

360 W/ch = 2-ohms load

180 W/ch = 4-ohms load

90 W/ch = 8-ohms load

Monophonic Operation:

1000 watts = 2 ohms load*

720 watts = 4 ohms load

360 watts =  8 ohms load

Notes:

Ratings marked. with * are for music signals only
