Accuphase :: A-250 CLASS A  Power amplifier mono block 

A-200 mono block

Eminently capable pure Class A monophonic power amplifier with power MOS-FET technology. 
Realizing ideal speaker drive characteristics, the A-250 features two separate but completely identical power amplifier circuits driven in parallel, a damping factor of 1 000, and semiconductor (MOS-FET) switches instead of output relays to eliminate mechanical contact points. In the input stage, the ultra-low noise double instrumentation amplifier configuration enables fully balanced signal transmission, augmented by double MCS+ circuit and current feedback topology for minimal distortion and outstanding performance parameters. The result is astounding S/N ratio and ultra-refined sound quality. The massive power supply with a large high-efficiency toroidal transformer and plenty of filtering capacity supports an output stage with MOS-FETs in a 20-parallel push-pull configuration that realizes constant-voltage speaker drive. Printed circuit boards made from teflon with low dielectric constant and minimum loss, and gold-plating of major signal-carrying parts further enhance sonic purity. Bridged operation allows use of two A-250 units as a monophonic amplifier with even more power, capable of delivering 1 600 watts into 2 ohms.
