SPL Performer m1000 Mono Power Amplifier; New w/ Full Warranty
Tax calculated at checkout
Our powerhouse mono-block.
With the power of 1000 W this amplifier controls every loudspeaker effortlessly. Thanks to VOLTAiR technology it is fast, direct and highly efficient with an outstanding sound.
The Performer m1000 can be equipped with a black, red or silver decorative panel that are included in the scope of delivery. This gives you a choice of three colour variants for your chosen basic colour.
The decorative panels adhere with the help of a strong neodymium magnet. No tools are therefore required for changing them.
Better safe than sorry
The Performer m1000 has a protection circuit against DC voltage and a limiter against output overload.
If direct current (DC) is detected, the output stage switches off automatically and the Protect LED lights up red.
To protect the output against overdriving, an LDR limiter (light-dependent resistor) is used. Since it works optically, the audio quality is not affected. The Protect LED lights up yellow when the limiter responds.
As one calls into the forest,
so it echoes out.
This saying inspired us to send the input signal out again in order to drive another power amplifier in bi-amping mode.
Trim to fit
With reference to the m1000, “fit” means adapted. And you can adapt the input sensitivity in 0.5 dB steps. From 0 dB to -5.5 dB.
This is the much more audiophile solution for acoustically problematic rooms or loudspeaker set-ups than the panorama potentiometer of the preamplifier.
In addition, the difference in loudness of loudspeakers can be elegantly compensated in bi-amping mode.
Plus & Minus
The loudspeaker binding posts can accommodate banana plugs as well as a stranded wire with a diameter of up to 4mm.
For bi-wiring operation, both types of connection can be used together.
No loudspeaker with less than 2 ohms impedance may be connected.
The power amplifier can be switched on and off using the AMP CTL connection between the Performer m1000 and a preamplifier such as the Director Mk2 or the Crossover.
To do this, connect the 3.5 mm jack sockets with a cable with 3.5 mm mono or stereo jack plugs.
Third-party preamps can also switch the Performer m1000 on and off with a 12 V trigger.
Inside the Performer m1000, six fans usually do nothing at all, because 90% of the heat is passively dissipated via massive heat sinks.
Should it nevertheless become really loud for a really long time, the processor-controlled fans remain virtually inaudible at only 19 dB (A).
