Mono – Si-C Mosfets Mono Amp

Tubes, transistors, mosfets: discussions among audiophiles have long been about the question of what could be the best device to be interposed between preamplifier and loudspeakears. Today semiconductor technology offers us equally valid alternatives, the best for Audiozen is the development of silicon carbide mosfets.

Silicon carbide is a material composed of carbon and silicon and the devices designed with this semiconductor stand out for the following reasons:

– Remarkable speed qualities (a Si-C mosfet is about three times faster than a silicon mosfet);

– Minimal input and output capacities (even ten times lower than a conventional mosfet), an important feature so the audio signal is not “colored”, restoring realism to the sonic event;

– High thermal conductivity, which is three times greater than silicon, synonymous with reliability for the lower cooling needs.

These excellent peculiarities are combined with the classic “warmth” of mosfet, here more noticeable for intrinsic constructive properties, realizing what can therefore be the ideal component for a stunning power amplifier.

Audiozen, always attentive to innovation, designed Mono using Si-C mosfets. Mono is the first monophonic class AB amplifier that adopts these devices: 200 Watts @ 8 Ω and 400 Watts @ 4 Ω allied with a 625 VA toroidal transformer (for audio use, made under Audiozen’ specifications), two rectifying bridges and more than 25000 mF capacitors stable up to 105 degrees.

The equipment of the Mono is completed by the rhodium-plated binding posts, a fine RCA connector and a robust made in Europe power socket.

The eight Si-C mosfets inside Mono give great immanence to the sound together with a marked sense of rhythm. Realism is assured, there are no longer veils in front of the speakers, everything is much closer to the live event: the tension of the strings, the warmth of the voices, the energy of percussions, each musical instrument has its position in the wide recreated sound stage.

Whoever will own a Mono must have the awareness to possess a creation that is the result of passion and innovation, a mature world-class amplifier. By turning the power knob you can reach the apex, the climax: this is why the power switch (which controls a 10 Amperes industrial relay) on the Mono has been called “enjoyment switch“.
