    Anyone Understand Design Approach of Stenheim? What are they doing differently from Magico, YG, Wilson, etc., to have High Sensitivity?

    Hello Sorry to rush in this conversation, but not all manufacturers specify power response at 1W.On our amplifiers, we specify FR on 95% of max power. For example, when we say that the new Forte is -3db at 10Hz, this is on 55W output, not on mW levels,which would be lower of course. I do...

    AC Preamps: Impera II & Impera Signature

    Hello The Ref has OI of ~200ohm. If you want to mate the Impera Ref to high gain amps like the such of Gryphon for ex, we have developed different output transformers, which not only lower the gain to be more fitted to HG amps, but as a result the output impedance is also lowered significantly...
