The new Momentum integrated amplifier combines the core audio circuits of the Momentum preamplifier and the Momentum stereo amplifier, both of which have been acclaimed by respected reviewers around the world as among the best audio components ever created.
The Momentum integrated amplifier is an audio first: an integrated amplifier without compromise.
The front panel has the same look and functionality as the Momentum preamplifier, with an illuminated dial and indicator needles inspired by classic Swiss watches. Six balanced XLR inputs are provided on the back panel. Bypassable tone controls allow the listener to customize the sound to suit the recording or personal taste, without affecting the fundamental sound quality and musicality of the unit.
The amplifier section is conservatively rated at 200 watts per channel into 8 ohms and 400 watts per channel into 4 ohms. A completely separate power supply, encased in a chassis machined from solid aluminum billet, isolates the sensitive audio circuitry from electromagnetic interference.
As with the original Momentum products, the integrated amplifier was built with through-hole construction, which is only rarely used now. Throughhole is much more expensive and time-consuming than the surface-mount construction found in most of today’s audio products, but it’s sturdier and it sounds better. And it’s the only way to make audio products that will last for decades to come. The Momentum integrated amp is built by hand and tested in D'Agostino's Arizona factory.
