Performer s1200 @ Stereo Times

On the online platform Stereo Times you can find a review about our stereo power amplifier SPL Performer s1200. Reviewer Terry London had already tested the Performer s800 and purchased and kept it as his reference device. Will the Performer s1200 also convince him?
You can find the complete review online – here we provide a short summary.

“With the s1200 inserted in the system that the s800 had driven, these are the improvements I could easily detect compared to the s800 amplifier. The s1200 retains all the beautiful warmth/intimacy of the all important mid-range band. The three-dimensional imaging has been kept at the same level. Both these sonic attributes present very much like a reference level tube based amplifier. Now add on a much more open, airy refined top end which adds a natural ‘sparkle’ that blends perfectly with the upper mid-range.”

“The s800 is one of the quietest amplifiers I have ever had in-house. However, the s1200 amplifier’s noise floor I believe is even lower which allows even more micro-details to be heard and the ambient cues of the original recording space fills out the space so the sound-stage seems more open and natural.”

“Finally, the s1200 amplifier creates a much more extended, powerful and controlled bottom end foundation then its smaller s800 sibling. The bass frequencies are taut and are accurate in their timbres/tonality.”

“Based on the high quality German engineering, the s1200 can deliver 550 watts into 4 ohms to effortlessly drive any speaker load, this power house amplifier is relatively small and light weight, runs cool even at high dB levels, and most importantly its musical performance makes the s1200 price very reasonable.”

“And what about the s1200 amplifier’s musical performance, going back to the introduction of my review regarding my personal taste and what I’m looking for in an amplifier’s delivery, that makes this German piece so special?”

“The SPL s1200 amplifier is a gorgeous synthesis of the ‘truth and beauty’, it offers the beautiful tonality/timbres and warmth of instruments as they sound in real life, wonderful ‘meat on the bones’ imaging, see through transparency that allows all the micro-details to shine through, excellent bass extension and control, and overall liquidity that allows you to relax and easily be engaged in the music. That’s way the SPL s1200 is not leaving my house, I’ll be purchasing the review demo.”
