The A200 was conceived as a compact 3-way reference monitor with FIRTEC™ managed time-aligned sound reproduction. As with the legendary ADM20, all frequencies are radiated by the A200 so that they simultaneously arrive – not out of sync - at the ear of the sound engineer. The tonal neutrality and this time alignment permit its use in all areas of professional production processes, from the recording as a mix-monitor or in mastering as a last reference. The assembly with an 8” carbon bass driver and a calotte-free, 1” high frequency driver transmits from 32Hz upwards and thereby offers in every tonal region an absolute of information. The conception of the amplifier and power supply ensure a low noise reproduction with virtually no distortion. Our patented FIRTEC system filter generates a linear phase, time aligned reproduction across the entire frequency range. The HT wave guide suppresses the cabinet edges and also linearizes the frequency range for digital signal processing. The implemented 1” high range ring radiator ensures a low distortion reproduction, even at a high volume, irrespective of whether connected via its analogue input with a 24 bit / 192 KHz AD-converter or digitally connected loss-free to a workstation.
The amplifier’s high- and low-shelving filter enables a fast room adjustment during its installation that can be enhanced with an optional RC-100 extra internal filter if required. Also the listening volume can be controlled directly at the monitor so that a full level digital connection at the master output can be guaranteed to be loss-free. Another speciality is the converter-less connection of the 3 PWM power amplifiers with 250W RMS each. This direct connection prevents converter losses and leads to an extreme resolution in timing as well as in tonal areas.
