DetailsMeridian G56 stereo power amplifier The Meridian G56 is a compact, 2-channel unit with dual-mono construction, delivering a solid 100W continuous mean power per channel into 8ohms and suitable for even the most difficult loads. The amplifier modules feature a symmetrical design with fully electronically-balanced inputs. Both balanced and unbalanced inputs are provided, but in fact the unbalanced inputs are converted to balanced before they enter the amplifier itself. The discrete active input components are thermally and electrically matched in pairs, and the amplifiers feature active bias control throughout, with thermal sensing that carefully manages the temperature and current flow at different volume levels. Fully DC-coupled, the signal path contains no capacitors, while those in the power supplies are audiophile grade components. The amplifiers are of a unique low-feedback design for minimum transient and interface distortion, offering superb clarity and transparency right across the audible range, with an output impedance that is close to zero and suitable for virtually any high-quality third-party passive loudspeaker system. Trigger capability allows the G56 to be switched on remotely by means of a signal from your preamp. Trigger and other control signals are optically isolated from the amplifier itself. When in stand-by mode, a standing voltage is maintained on the power rails and supply components. As a result, you do not have to wait for half an hour after switching on for optimum performance to be achieved: it is there immediately. Outline Specifications Power Output: 2 channels at 100W into 8Ω, or 1 channel at 300W into 8Ω (bridge mode) Distortion: Less than 0.01% input to output Signal/Noise: Better than ñ100dB Inputs: Balanced on XLR-3F connectors and unbalanced on phono Outputs: 2 output sets per channel, terminal posts Construction: 4 pairs of 15amp output devices per channel, and a total of 27,200μF of audiophile-grade PSU smoothing capacitors (2 per channel).
