SPL Audio Performer m1000

The Performer m1000 is the big brother of the highly acclaimed Performer s800. Built as a mono block it features SPL’s proprietary VOLTAiR technology that allows creating power amps with far less components in the signal path than common designs. Only one preamplifier op-amp is required to drive the bipolar power amplifier transistors: extremely fast, direct, highly efficient and with an extraordinary sound. The Performer m1000 delivers 1000 W into 2 ohms or 750 W into 4 ohms out of a linear power supply with a massive toroidal transformer.

 

The Performer m1000 amplifier is an ultra-compact power amplifier. Thanks to the VOLTAiR technology this power amplifier has absolute control over the speakers up to their load limits. Designed as a mono block amplifier this bi-polar transistor power amplifier delivers up to 1000 W into 2 ohms, 750 W into a 4 ohms and 420 W into 8 ohms speaker.
