UK-based manufacturer MC2 Audio has introduced the S Series Signature Reference Power Amplifiers. Aimed at studio applications, the amplifiers are designed for use in the most demanding monitoring environments, but to be equally at home in any application where transparency and ‘no compromise’ performance are required.

MC2 Audio S1400The S Series is the culmination of years of work undertaken by MC2 Audio Technical Director and co-owner Terry Clarke: ‘Our first amplifier range came very close to being the best and we won many plaudits from different market sectors, however the new S Series has taken the audio quality to another level,’ he says.

The S Series uses MC2 Audio’s complimentary AB bipolar output stages, combined with the unique MC2 Audio current driven floating drive stage. Remaining true to its roots, analogue level controls are provided for ease of use and minimal signal degradation. Sophisticated sidechain limiters prevent speaker damage and distortion. These stay out-of-circuit until the onset of clipping so do not compromise the signal path under normal working conditions.

The S Series comprises two models – the S800 and S1400, both of which feature bespoke high fidelity shielded toroidal power supplies and intelligently controlled, low noise fans.

Weighing in at 20.5kg (42.5lbs), the S800 packs plenty of punch, running 8Ω loads at 475W and 4Ω at 950W. The big brother S1400 weighs 23.3kg (51.4lbs), producing 775W at 8Ω and 1.5kW at 4Ω.

‘The S Series is a very welcome addition to our range,’ says Group Sales and Marketing Director, Bill Woods. ‘Our unique position held in live, installed and the more challenging recording studio market is testimony to MC2 Audio’s belief that superb audio quality remains as important to our customers as it does to us.’

All S Series are covered by MC2 Audio’s real world five-year warranty.
