Dan D’Agostino launches the Momentum MxV integrated amplifier

The Momentum MxV Combines the front-end technology from the Momentum HD Preamplifier and the power section of the Momentum S250 MxV Stereo Amplifier in a compact framework.

Employing a configurable, modular design, the core line stage section can be augmented to include a digital streaming and/or a phono stage module. The backbone of the integrated amplifier is a new 2,000VA linear transformer, while a toroidal winding technology delivers more power output than from a similarly sized conventional transformer. This engine drives a nearly 60,000?F capacitor bank resulting in 250/500/1,000W power output into 8/4/2Ω speaker loads.

The final output stage features new output transistors that were originally sourced for the flagship Relentless Monoblock Amplifier. 28 high speed, high-output transistors are used in the Momentum MxV Integrated Amplifier, with each transistor mounted directly to the copper heat sinks. A capacitor/resistor network connected to the base of each transistor ensures stability at high frequencies and with low-impedance speakers.

The digital module adds S/PDIF coaxial, optical, and USB-A for legacy digital components and Ethernet and Wi-Fi for network-based music. A dedicated iOS D’Agostino DSM app provides built-in Tidal, Qobuz, MQA decoding, plus complete unit control. PCM signals up to 32-bit/192kHz and DSD up to DSD1024 are supported.
