Each amp is black with large brass knobs. Even harsh CDs are mellow when played through a Densen, just like a SET, and yet the volume is there when desired because high current is available the SET typically has an output of only 7 – 12 watts per channel. In other words, they can only be used for tape recording and playback rather than for a “loop” containing an equalizer for tone control or other circuit such as a surround sound processor.

We highly recommend that you audition these superb components. This not only results in a reduction in the problems listed above, which are normally corrected by the use of negative feedback, but also improves phase linearity and speed. We obtained not only the DM for testing, but the new BEAT B as well, and, as you will see, both amplifiers are very special in sound quality as well as their design. The DM uses two toroidal transformers one for each channeland the B uses one which supplies both channels.

Therefore, good speaker cables with low capacitance should be chosen for the best performance. The upper portion of ednsen audio spectrum is laid back, not quite as much as the SET, but just a little, and the mid-range is glorious, just like the SET.

This is in keeping with Densen’s philosophy of not simply having a low profile, but allowing as little circuitry in the signal path as possible. They are denssen the result of even order harmonic distortion – a hallmark of the SET – that dense not occur to any significant degree in the Densen amplifiers.

The presence of negative feedback has several purposes, among others: The thumps are due to the lack of any additional circuitry which would eliminate the thump but possibly degrade the signal. Negative feedback can produce distortion of its own, however, and too much of it becomes obvious when listening to sibilants the “s” in wordswhere it sounds as if someone is hissing at you.

Their elegant sound is matched only by their looks. One of the most important design characteristics of these amplifiers is the lack of global negative feedback. Let us know if we need to take a look at this page or fix a bug.

Thomas Sillesen, the designer of the Densen line, was there to answer our many questions about this unique amplifier. A red LED in between the two brass control knobs illuminates when the units are on, and slowly fades when turned off. There are only two knobs on the front, one for volume control and the other for selecting the inputs. Since the DM and B are designed with the shortest signal path in mind, tape loops are out of the picture.

The basic difference between the DM and B is in dynamic range, and perhaps a bit in the detail of the upper mid-range as well as the high end.

Unlike the SET, however, the bass region on the Densens is powerful and deep. We obtained not only the DM for testing, but the new BEAT B as well, and, as you will see, both amplifiers are dwnsen special in sound quality as well as their design. Both the DM and the B are among the finest integrated amplifiers we have ever heard.

However, either amplifier can be used with a surround sound processor if the processor has the capability of routing the unprocessed signal through when it is turned off.

Their elegant sound is matched only by their looks. There are proponents and opponents of negative feedback, regardless of its shortcomings, and Densen has chosen the design route of using no global feedback which is very difficult to do in a solid state push-pull amplifier. The Alps potentiometers for volume control are marvelously smooth ddnsen noise free, allowing a very gradual increase in sound levels xensen in the 7 – 10 o’clock region.

Even harsh CDs are mellow when played through a Densen, just ednsen a SET, and yet the volume is there when desired because high current is available the SET typically has an output of only 7 – 12 watts per channel. Our Vault pages may have some display quirks. Because the DM and B use no global negative feedback, the damping factor is very modest. Please explain the problem you are having.

There are separate windings for the output stages bipolar transistors and the remaining portions of the amplifiers the DM as well as the B There are separate windings for the output stages bipolar transistors and the remaining portions of the amplifiers the DM as well as the B The use of censen loop would require a tape monitor switch, and this would mean that the signal path has to be routed through the switch.

Unpacking the amplifiers is an experience in itself. The tape inputs and outputs are not tape loops. One of the most important design characteristics of these amplifiers is the lack of global negative feedback.
