The term ‘hand-finishing’ includes a wide array of fine decorations and subtle enhancements, painstakingly manually performed on watch components once they’ve come from the machine that produced them. Finishing smooth away any tiny burrs or traces of machining that may impede perfect movement; hones edges that will move against each other; protects against oxidation; and the different processes also transform dull metal into a material of burnished, alluring beauty. It goes without saying that, whether a particular process ensures the flawless running of the watch for years to come or is purely aesthetic, hand-finishing of any kind calls for hard-won knowledge of centuries-old techniques – as well as great dexterity, since it’s often carried out on minuscule surfaces you’d struggle to see with the naked eye. The MP-I201 Integrated Amplifier is like a perfectly shaped chronograph: a precise, accurate and high performance instrument.
Why lose one more second denying yourself the pleasure of the Vitus Audio Masterpieces?
Remember when we first introduced the ideas behind the MP-S201 Stereo Power Amplifier? Most people saw that as a ‘Mission Impossible’. Our team of engineers worked long and hard. The result was simply flawless. They went above and beyond. When you truly challenge people, special thing can happen. The MP-I201 Integrated Amplifier is derived from the magnificent design of the MP-S201 Stereo Power Amplifier. This beautiful peace of machinery has 3 XLR balanced stereo inputs and 2 RCA unbalanced stereo inputs. Special tools were needed to manufacture this 125Kg integrated of colossal size. No compromises were made on the fact that it’s handmade in Denmark. While intended for being a stereo integrated amplifier, mono mode is available should bi-amping be required. Technical keywords: 4,5KVA transformers, 1.200.00uF capacitor bank, zero global negative feedback, 2mm thick boards, separated digital control circuitry, intelligent Class A bias and modular design. It’s by far the most insane integrated amplifier you have ever seen. In size it’s one of the biggest in the world. Fortunately, not only in size. Mission accomplished!
Majestic, marvelous, masterful. Three words that best describe the essence of the MPI201 Integrated Amplifier.
The MP-I201 is likely the single most extreme level of Integrated amplifiers. During the introduction of the MP-S201 stereo/mono amplifier,
many visitors were asking – “will this be available as an integrated amplifier” to which our founder replied – “why not”. While this was most likely a funny remark – it wasn’t from our founder, and so the development for a suitable preamplifier for the MP-S201 powerstages began.
Reusing the discrete modules found in the MP-L201 adding a suitable volume, it was possible to integrate this preamplifier board. While the MP-S/I-201 is the largest product we manufacture today, there is not as much free space as one would think. The linestage offers in total five inputs, sensitivity settings between 2VRMS and 8VRMS to accomedate any source available and as always a true balanced configuration from input
to output. Non balanced signals (via RCA) are immidiatly converted to true balanced signals at the very first stage of the preamplifier.
The final result is one – if not the – biggest integrated amplifier even made, with a sound so very far away from what one would ever expect from such a product. The powerhandling, the resolution, micro and macro details only suppressed by the MP-M201.
