In Joachim Pfeiffer’s HIFI SOUND & MUSIC magazine you can find a review of our mono block SPL Performer m1000. The complete and extensive review is available in the current edition (April) of the magazine. Here we provide some highlights.
“Warming up is unnecessary with the SPL Performer. Most of the power amplifiers I know need about half an hour after switching them on to ‘warm up’. This is where the monos from Niederkrüchten, Germany differ from their competition. Whether running for days or just a few minutes: if there’s a difference, I hardly notice it.“
“SPL creates the good feeling of absolute safety and the experience of enjoying sound at its best.”
“Highest levels without stress and distortion. SPL has come up with something technologically unique: Instead of working with the usual 30 volts DC, the developers from Niederkrüchten use an operating voltage of 120 volts. They call this technology‘ ‘VOLTAiR’. In order to be able to process the high voltage of +/- 60 volts, SPL developed appropriate operational amplifiers.”
“The sound of the SPL mono-blocks is impressively convincing – both playing quiet and loud.”
“In my chain, the SPL monos behaved almost like an excellent tonearm on a turntable: completely neutral. They played expressively at low levels and simply redefined high levels: So far, I could not experience live concerts more powerful in my listening room – without annoying distortions. Chapeau.”
