Common wisdom says low noise linear designs sound great, and switching designs are efficient. Now there’s Hybrid Analog Amplification Technology to give you the best of both worlds. Class-A linear components handle signal input and voltage amplification for EMI noise reduction that’s 1000 times better than traditional designs, while low impedance, high-speed, energy-saving switching components maximize output power. Hybrid Analog Amplification Technology give the MERAK great linear sound with modern efficiency.
Our Advanced Power Management circuit gives the MERAK the brains to manage its own needs — 5 watts is all it takes to keep the MERAK in an “always-ready” state for peak performance at any time. With intelligent wake-up and auto-sleep functions that can respond in 0.5 seconds to a musical signal of only 5mV, the MERAK is always ready to go, so you’ll never miss a beat of the music.
We developed our Purer-Power Linear Power Solution so the MERAK’s circuits would get super-clean, consistent electrical power that maximizes performance. The system isolates interference from within and beyond the audio band (common-mode and differential-mode interference) while removing DC current entirely. Together with a custom 500A low-noise, narrow-band transformer, Purer Power can store up to 120 Joules of energy, keeping noise and source impedance low while preserving excellent transient properties.
