The Emitter I

The Emitter I is the entry model, offering all the qualities of the Emitter- family. Separate power supply are keeping electro-magnetic fields and vibrations away from the control unit. The power supply unit is equipped with two large and powerful PM (Philbert-Mantelschnitt) transformers with a smaller PM transformer for Standby operation. The two power transformers are switched ON softly with 5 high power relays in the energy saving mode. If required, they can be switched via a current limiter into normal operation mode. In the power supply unit, 8 different voltages are generated. Every voltage is rectified individually and pre- buffered. These voltages are used to supply the input amplifier, driver, output stage as well as the control circuit separately.

The Emitter I is connected to the power supply unit with a 2 meter long double shielded cable. The 30 contacts of the plug-in connector are designed individually to handle 16 Ampere. The RCA sockets for the 6 inputs are constructed from gilded massive brass. The insulator consists of high-quality Teflon. Massive silver wire with a Teflon coating is used for the music conductors. The 60 Amp pole speaker terminals allow up to three loudspeaker cables with connector spades for Bi- or Tri-wiring. 4 mm plugs can be connected firmly and secure. To avoid any possibilities of accidental short circuits, the pole terminals are fully isolated and mounted at a distance of 40 mm. A wear-resistant step switch adjusts the volume precisely with 32 relays. A micro controller supervises the correct function of all parts of the amplifier and protects it in the case of possible malfunction for the Emitter and the loudspeakers.
The LED- display is of 35 mm in size and is therefore easily seen. It informs you about changes and what is proceeding in your Emitter, and switches off after 10 seconds, depending on the setting.
Under the double-sided main board with special thick copper- tin layers, there are 60 mm2 mass rails,
at which the two boards are mounted for the buffering electrolytic capacitors. Even in our smallest version, there are built-in electrolytic capacitors with an opulent 296.000 uF.

The Emitter I Exclusive version:

The Emitter I Exclusive offers the consistent and further development of the Emitter I.
All latest improvements of the Emitter I are integrated into the Exclusive version. The results achieved, the reproduced sound picture is extremely fast and dynamic. The sound of the Emitter I Exclusive is even more relaxing, smooth and homogeneous. Through its extremely high speed, the Emitter Exclusive reproduces authentically the three dimensions of good reproduction into the listening room. The detachment of music from the loudspeakers becomes so perfect that an audible location of the loudspeakers at the listening place is virtually impossible. The Exclusive power supply unit achieves the essential part of the tonal improvements. This unit is equipped with enhanced and more powerful transformers, with improved magnetic core type. 56 ultra-fast rectifier diodes and 166.000 uF capacitors are used for pre- filtering. A special ferrite shielded power cable 3x 2,5 mm2 with a defined filter characteristic, avoids the influence of high frequency power supply distortions and maintains full dynamics. The Emitter 1 Exclusive is constructed with 12 high current 150 Watts Power- Mosfet-transistors, a military high grade driving chip, faster foil capacitors and Elkos with a total of 556.000 uF.

Equipment list of the different versions of the Emitter I:

Declaration of the different devices:
The Emitter I Exclusive is an Emitter I with faster plastic foil capacitors, enlarged buffering of 556.000 uF together with military ceramic control circuits. The Exclusive power unit produces 8 exceptionally clean filtered DC voltages.
The input stages are supplied separately. 56 very fast single diodes are inserted for rectification.
The Emitter I Exclusive achieves a more precise and a fuller, rounded sound. The most intricate of tones are reproduced tenderly together with a stronger and fuller bass.
The Emitter I can be upgraded to the improved and better-equipped Emitter I Exclusive version upon request.
The Emitter I Exclusive can be equipped with an accumulator power supply unit for the input stage with
400.000 uF additional filtering. The result is exceptional homogenous, spatial and relaxing performance.
