The sovereign entrance into the class of our large integrated
amplifiers. The Emitter II was
developed in order to drive the most pretentious loudspeakers
with ease of power. A basic requirement for this unit
is an over dimensioned current supply: For each channel,
one separate power unit with two large, heavy and powerful
PM (Philbert-Mantelschnitt) transformers with energy
saving circuit. In total, 3 transformers generate eight
different voltages. Every voltage is rectified individually
and pre- buffered. These voltages are used to supply
separately the input amplifier, driver and output stages,
as well as the control circuit. The Emitter II is connected
to the power supply units with 2 double shielded cable,
each 2 meters long. The 30 contacts of the plug-in connector
are designed individually for 16 ampere.
The input sockets are made out of gilded massive brass.
The insulator consists of high-quality Teflon. Massive
silver wire Teflon coated is used for the music conductors.
The 100 Amp speaker terminals with big lever grips allow
up to three loudspeaker cables with cable spade connectors
for Bi- or Tri-wiring. 4 mm plugs can be connected firmly
and secure. To avoid any possibilities of short circuits,
the pole terminals are fully -isolated and mounted with
50 mm distance.
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 against any possible malfunctions for the Emitter
and the loudspeakers. The LED- display has a size of
35 mm and can be easily seen. It keeps you informed
what is in process in the Emitter. Depending on the
setting, the display switches off after 10 seconds.
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
Inside the Emitter II there are 20 powerful MOS- FET-
transistors each with 150 watt, high-grade ceramic input
circuits, fast foil capacitors and electrolytic capacitors
with a total of 562.000 uF.
Emitter II Exclusive version:
The Emitter II Exclusive sets another milestone in
the consistent further development of the Emitter
II. All possible improvements of the Emitter II are
integrated into this version.The sound picture is
very fast and dynamic, and the audio solution is increased.
Furthermore, the sound is quiescent and even more
relaxing, smooth and homogeneous. Through its extremely
high speed, the Emitter II Exclusive reproduces authentically
the three dimensions of good recordings into the listening
room. The sound is faultless to such a degree that
the audible location of the loudspeakers at the listening
position is nearly impossible.
The two Exclusive power supply units achieve an essential
part of these tonal improvements.
The well-constructed units are equipped with increased
powerful transformers with improved magnetic core
material, 56 ultra-fast rectifier diodes and 166.000
uF electrolytic capacitors. In the Exclusive power
unit 8 different voltages are generated. They are
used to supply the input amplifier, driver and output
stage, as well as the control circuit separately.
A special ferrite shielded power cable, 3x 2,5 qmm
with a definite filter characteristic avoids the influence
of high frequency power supply distortions and improves
II Exclusive is equipped with a military high grade
driving chip, faster foil
capacitors and electrolytic capacitors with a total
of 862.000 uF.

list of the different versions of the Emitter II:
Declaration of the different devices:
The Emitter II Exclusive is an Emitter II with two
Exclusive power units, shielded power cable, enlarged
buffering with a total of 862.000 uF and has military
ceramic input control circuits.
The two Exclusive power units are equipped with high
• 5 high power relays are used to switch the
two improved transformers to the power network.
• 8 different voltages feed the separate power
supplies to the input stage.
• 56 very fast single diodes are used for rectification.
• Improved plastic foil capacitors with an enlarged
filtering circuit is installed in the Emitter II Exclusive.
The Emitter II Exclusive has increased resolution
and spaciousness. The reproduced sound is more precise,
fuller, rounder with a softer approach to the delicate
overtones. A more dynamic and defined bass is obtained.
The Emitter II can be upgraded to the Exclusive version.
Upon request, the Emitter II Exclusive can be equipped
with an accumulator power unit for the
input stage with 400.000 uF additional filtering.
The result: achieving an exceptionally homogenous,
spatial and relaxing performance.
