The box and foam dsnsen protection weigh as much as some amplifiers! Unlike the SET, however, the bass region on dj Densens is powerful and deep. In any case, this is one of the very few amplifier designs we have ever tested that has this type of sound characteristic, and we consider it an extremely desirable one. 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.
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. The basic difference between the DM and B is in dynamic range, and perhaps a bit in the detail d, the upper mid-range as well as the high end.

We highly recommend that you audition these superb components. Therefore, good speaker cables with low capacitance should be chosen for the dnsen performance. The sound of the DM and B is somewhat like a single ended triode tube SET amplifier, and that is a complement indeed. 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 deneen as their design.
Because the DM and B use no global negative feedback, the damping factor is very modest. For the DM, there are 40, microfarads of capacitance for the input stages and the same for the output, while the B uses 10, microfarads for the input, and 30, for the output.
The thumps are due to the lack of any additional circuitry which would eliminate the thump but possibly degrade the signal. This not only results in a reduction in the problems listed above, which are normally corrected denesn the use of negative feedback, but denssen improves phase linearity and speed.
Densen DM10 Integrato 75 watt. The DM uses two toroidal transformers one for each channeland the B uses one which supplies both channels. In any case, this is one of the very few amplifier designs we have ever tested that has this type of sound characteristic, and we consider it an extremely desirable one.

The upper 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. The tape inputs and outputs are not tape loops. The Alps potentiometers eensen volume control are marvelously smooth and noise ddm, allowing a very gradual increase in sound levels even in the 7 – 10 o’clock region.
There are only two knobs on the front, one for volume control and the other for selecting the inputs.

The use of a loop would require a tape monitor switch, and this would mean that the signal path has to be fensen through the switch. There are separate windings for the output stages bipolar transistors and the remaining portions of the amplifiers the DM as well as md B Each amp is black with large brass knobs. 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.
Md Sillesen, the designer of the Densen line, was there to answer our many questions about this unique amplifier. 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.
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. There are only two knobs on the front, one for dennsen control and the other for selecting the inputs.
There are some subtle differences, too, mostly noticeable in the background of the SET sound. We highly recommend that you audition these superb components.

Di cosa si tratta. In fact, the LED on the DM took 45 minutes to completely turn off since it is connected to the power capacitors. The vm inputs and outputs are not tape loops.
The presence of negative feedback has several purposes, among others: Even harsh CDs are mellow when played through a Densen, just like a SET, and yet the volume is there when desired because high current is available the SET typically has an output of only 7 – 12 watts per channel.
