The Monsalvat high dynamic range, ultra-wide bandwidth loudspeaker system requires an extremely precise and high-resolution crossover controller. Verity’s extensive research soon showed that no product of suitable quality was available on the market—but we had no intention of giving up. Since third party equipment failed to meet our strict requirements, our team of practised engineers designed custom electronics that would suit the Monsalvat’s particular needs.
This endeavour proved fruitful. Our custom-made active crossover brought the Monsalvat to the heights we were hoping for. Given our successful and celebrated first foray into the world of electronics, we have chosen to build upon our experience with the custom Monsalvat equipment to offer a complete line of electronics now available through Verity.
This new line features digital preamplifier devices and amplifiers. This ancillary equipment of the utmost quality features exceptional precision and versatility and is the ideal companion to any loudspeaker, especially Verity-brand speakers.
Our new Monsalvat Pre-2, a preamp (ADC/DAC), is directly inspired from the Monsalvat’s Pro-6 crossover controller, which proved to be a product of superior quality during testing. We now offer:
- The Pro-6, a six-channel digital preamp, crossover, ADC/DAC and time delay unit designed exclusively for the Monsalvat system;
- The Pro-4, a four-channel version of the Pro-6 suited for Lohengrin and Sarastro owners;
- The Pre-2, a stereo, crossover-free preamplifier with ADC/DAC that is ideal for all audio system and loudspeakers.
Verity’s two new amplifiers respect our traditional approach by focusing on dynamic range, sound purity and low listening fatigue over raw power, thus best interfacing with our existing high-sensitivity speaker systems. The new AMP-60 (60 watts per channel) unit is currently available (see the attached pictures) while the AMP-250 (250 watts per channel) unit will be offered soon. The new Verity amplifiers are built using durable high-end materials and are rather heavy as a result, the 60 watts-per-channel model weighing in at 154 lbs.
Verity is excited to unveil this development and expects its new products to please music lovers everywhere.
