Norwegian high-end audio equipment manufacturer Electrocompaniet has announced the launch of its latest addition to the esteemed AW series, the Electrocompaniet AW 300 M Mono Power Amplifier. Designed as a mono-only model, the AW 300 M follows in the footsteps of its predecessor, the AW 800 M, with a promise to deliver exceptional audio performance in a more compact package.
The AW 300 M, a mono-only amplifier, is designed to provide a limitless soundstage, pinpoint precision, and room-filling low-frequency reproduction. While it may be smaller in size compared to the AW 800 M, it packs a formidable punch with its 300 Watts of power into 8 Ohms.
One of the main features of the AW 300 M is its use of Electrocompaniet's direct-coupled high open-loop bandwidth topology. This, coupled with a high slew rate of 140 V/µs and exceptionally high bandwidth amplifier stages, should ensure that the audio signal remains pristine throughout the amplification process. This combination of innovative technologies is what allows the AW 300 M to deliver a performance that competes with larger, more powerful amplifiers.
Electrocompaniet AW 300 M Specs:
The Electrocompaniet AW 300 M Mono Power Amplifier remains true to the brand's distinctive design ethos, making it seamlessly complement the aesthetics of both contemporary and legacy Electrocompaniet products. The compact dimensions of the AW 300 M, measuring 212 mm in width, 292 mm in height, and 488 mm in depth, set it apart from its larger sibling, the AW 800 M, making it an attractive option for those with space constraints.
To ensure clean and powerful delivery of audio, the amplifier is equipped with a substantial power supply unit boasting 110,000 uF of mains filtering. This meticulous engineering is geared towards effectively filtering DC and RF noise, while an 800 VA toroidal transformer guarantees ample power reserves.
Enthusiasts looking to add the AW 300 M to their setup won't have to wait long, as the product is available for pre-orders now, with shipping expected to commence in early November. The AW 300 M is priced at £12,100 in the UK or €13,500 in Europe per unit (US price TBA).
